Our interdisciplinary research draws group members from a variety of backgrounds including Geology and other Earth Sciences, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Biology, and Geography. A strong quantitative science background is expected. We conduct highly interdisciplinary research drawing from diverse scales, scopes, and methods.
Postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, MS students, and undergraduate researchers are invited to propose original research projects to work on with advice from Dr. Moffett or to apply for existing opportunities in the group (see below).
Applicants for graduate study beginning next fall are encouraged to send inquiries to Dr. Moffett starting this fall and to apply to the UT Department of Geological Sciences (or UT CAEE) by December.
Postdoctoral researchers with outside funding, or interested in applying for outside funding with Dr. Moffett as supervisor, are encouraged to contact Dr. Moffett at any time with a specific statement about the proposed research topic and the potential source of funding.
Undergraduates seeking research course credit (UT students) are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Moffett about possible ways to participate in the group. Undergraduates interested in summer research with Dr. Moffett are invited to contact her ASAP – positions may be available as research assistants on current projects (UT or other local students) or by applying through the REU program of the UT Environmental Science Institute (non-UT students).
