I am recruiting undergraduate and graduate students to join the Glaciers and Climate Lab. I am looking for students who are motivated, resourceful, and have excellent written and oral communication skills in English. MA thesis students are fully based at Queens College; Ph.D. students split their time between Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center.

If you have experience with, or are interested in learning more about terrestrial records of glaciation, glacial processes, cosmogenic nuclides, or Quaternary surficial geology, please get in touch with me via email.

See our group research page to learn more about what we are working on.

We're hiring!
