Graduate Student Opportunity in Mineral Physics at SESE, ASU starting in Aug 2025

Date: 07/11/2024

The mineral physics lab at the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE), Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for graduate student positions towards a Ph.D. degree for the spring admissions (starting in Aug 2025). 

The student will carry out research on planetary materials at high pressures and high temperatures for understanding the atmosphere-interior interaction in a range of planetary settings, from rocky planets to water-rich or hydrogen-rich planets, funded by NSF and NASA.  Candidates with strong interest in Earth science, planetary science, and astrophysics are encouraged to apply. The student will have opportunities for research training in a range of experimental techniques, including laser-heated diamond-anvil cell, multi-anvil press, laser driven dynamic compression, X-ray techniques at synchrotron facilities and X-ray Free Electron facilities, laser spectroscopy, and electron microscopy.  More information about the mineral physics research program at SESE, ASU, can be found at: https://www.danshimlab.info.  School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU provides collaborative research opportunities for graduate students by taking advantage of our programs in Earth science, geophysics, astrophysics, and system engineering.  More information on research programs at SESE is available at: https://sese.asu.edu.  Please contact Dr. Dan Shim at sshim5@asu.edu for further information.
