Teaching Assistantships are available for the Fall semester (August 2018) in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs. Financial support includes stipend and tuition for two academic years (M.S.) or four academic years (PhD) from the date of enrollment in the program. The Department of Geosciences consists of 12 faculty members who maintain active research programs in glacial geology, hydrogeology, near-surface geophysics, geochemistry, remote sensing/GIS, paleoclimate studies and basin analysis. In recent years, the department has extended its scope to new frontiers of earth science, including airborne and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) geophysics and remote sensing, mass transport in fractured media, and carbonate petrology.
The affiliated Michigan Geological Repository for Research and Education (MGRRE) maintains an extensive collection of drill cores that provide excellent opportunities for creative subsurface studies. Dedicated research laboratories are also maintained for mass spectrometry, contaminant hydrology, aqueous geochemistry, remote sensing/GIS/informatics, geotechnical studies, near-surface geophysics, and basin analysis. Our graduates have an excellent record of employment in academia and industry. Deadline for applications: February 28, 2018. Apply to http://wmich.edu/apply.
