Dear Colleagues,

The new Ice Core Lab at the University of Rochester has an opening for a
PhD student. Our work uses ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica to
study past environmental change, with the goal of better understanding
the Earth’s natural climate system. We regularly conduct ice core
drilling expeditions in the polar regions, working both in the extreme
frozen interiors of the major ice sheets as well as on their picturesque
margins.  Examples of specific research projects include reconstruction
and interpretation of atmospheric carbon monoxide history from ice
cores, examining the stability of methane clathrates during large
natural climate transitions, as well as investigating the potential of
carbon-14 in ice as a tracer for the past cosmic ray flux.

Students with backgrounds in the earth sciences, environmental sciences,
chemistry or physics are encouraged to apply. For more information on
the research activities please see:
<http://www.ees.rochester.edu/faculty/petrenko.html> or contact me at
<vpetrenk@z.rochester.edu>.

The University of Rochester is a highly ranked research university, and
Rochester’s cultural, educational, and recreational assets consistently
place the city in the top 10 places to live within the U.S.
