Geology of Earthquakes and Sea Level - Aron Meltzner
I am looking to build a research group at EOS that bridges earthquake geology and sea-level research, because, in so many ways, the two problems cannot be studied independently.

I currently seek outstanding, motivated PhD students and postdoctoral scholars who are interested in any of these lines of research. If this describes you, please e-mail me with your CV, a brief description of how you envision fitting into my research group, and some thoughts on why the topic(s) interest you. Full funding is available for qualified candidates.
