The UT Planetary Surface Processes Group has one to two openings for graduate students to start in Fall 2020. Prospective students can find out more information about these positions in the advertisement posted here, and about the Jackson School of Geosciences admissions process here.

The area of focus for graduate student research projects is open within the broad field of planetary surface processes, and interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Goudge directly to discuss potential topics of mutual interest. The deadline for applications is Jan. 1, 2020 (Dec. 1, 2019 for fellowship consideration).

Our group is also always on the lookout for motivated undergraduate researchers and postdoctoral fellows, although there are no specific open positions at the moment. Students interested in such positions should contact Dr. Goudge directly to see what opportunities might exist.

For undergraduate researchers (as with all group members), our group has the requirement that students are compensated for their time, through either salary (i.e., URA funding) or research credit. This policy is to ensure that opportunities to work in our group are equitable and equally available to all interested students (as inspired by Dr. Meghan Duffy, see here).

The UT Planetary Surface Processes Group is strongly committed to building an inclusive and supportive research environment. Applicants from historically underrepresented groups in STEM fields, with non-traditional backgrounds, and/or with a demonstrated interest in efforts to improve inclusion and diversity in STEM are especially encouraged to apply. Group members are housed in the E. P. Schoch building, which has a power assisted door for accessibility.
