PhD/MS Opportunities with K-Pg Antarctic Field Work

We are seeking two graduate students for an NSF-funded project to examine the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary in Antarctica through sediment coring and surface sampling. The project is led by Dr. Tom Tobin and Dr. Becky Totten, both in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Alabama, as well as collaborators at other institutions around the country. Positions will be fully funded (stipend, tuition waiver, benefits) by a mix of GRA (Graduate Research Assistant) and GTA (Graduate Teaching Assistant) support, and students may be eligible for internal fellowship awards. We are looking for students to enroll in Fall 2024, and participate in field work planned for Spring 2026, though the start date may be flexible.  Specific research areas include sedimentology, sedimentary and invertebrate geochemistry, and micropaleontology.
