Faculty Search (New)
- We are currently seeking multiple Tenure-track faculty positions in Solid Earth Geosciences and Planetary Sciences in EAS.
If you're interested in applying, please go academicjobsonline for more information.
- Applicants will be considered beginning October 1st, 2018.
Graduate Student Prospective
- Research in geophysics at Georgia Tech covers studies from the inner core of the earth
through planetary sciences. Our research includes theoretical analyses, numerical modeling,
observational studies, and laboratory experiments. The research addresses issues of fundamental
understanding of the dynamics of the solid earth system, and associated hazards from earthquakes,
volcanism, and tsunamis as well as cosmogenic geochronology, geomorphology and electro-magnetic
interactions of planetary bodies. Geophysics research is inherently interdisciplinary and is
conducted in collaboration with civil and environmental engineering, physics, geochemistry,
geology, and microbiology.
- In recent years, external funding for the pure and applied research being conducted
within the geophysics group has been provided by the National Science Foundation
Earth Science and Ocean Science Divisions, the U.S. Dept. of Energy, USGS,
NOAA, the Ocean Drilling Program, the Petroleum Research Fund, and state
Other GT faculty with courtesy or other pertinent appointments to group
- Students are strongly encouraged to contact faculty
members in their areas of potential interest. We invite inquiries
and applications from
highly-qualified students with genuine enthusiasm for earth and planetary science research
and with rigorous quantitative undergraduate training.
Previous experience in the Earth sciences is encouraged, but
not required. We particularly welcome inquiries from students with backgrounds
in geology, geophysics, pure or applied physics, applied mathematics, and engineering.
