Printer-friendly version

Please consider applying to study as a PhD student for a newly funded project looking at water diffusion in mantle materials associated with melt channelling and veining in mantle ophiolite sections. This PhD opportunity at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, will require both field work (New Zealand and USA) and extensive geochemical and petrologic work, with the applicant starting as soon as possible to make use of the southern hemisphere summer. Funding is available to cover research travel and analytical expenses. Students must apply and qualify for a University doctoral scholarship to be eligible as no student scholarship funds are associated with this grant funding.
