The 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.

Some examples of the Ice Core Lab’s current and possible future research

1)    Understanding past changes in atmospheric methane (a powerful
greenhouse gas) during natural climate warming events

2)    Using carbon-14 produced by cosmic rays in glacial ice to
understand past changes in cosmic ray bombardment intensity and related
changes in solar activity

3)    Using ice core measurements of carbon monoxide and its isotopes to
understand past changes in the chemical reactivity of the global atmosphere
