Student and post-doc opportunities

I am looking for students and post-doctoral researchers who are excited about working on geosciences in general, and earthquakes in particular. In my lab, there are opportunities to get involved in both fieldwork and data analyses (desk-work). If you are outdoorsy and like travel, this should be exciting for you. For students, some background in geosciences and/or physics and/or mathematics is a plus. Contact me if you are interested.
