Research Opportunity in the Earthquake Seismology Group.

The quake group is looking for an undergraduate researcher to work on ground motion prediction. The position is supported by NSF grants and targets the prediction of ground shaking for several past earthquakes in 1) southern California, and 2) the Pacific Northwest. The data is curated by current group members. The research entirely relies on time series analysis; however, the student will receive dedicated presentations on the scientific context and nature of the project. Some level coding is required...

High-temperature, high-pressure mineral physics student job opportunity

The Fischer research group is seeking an undergraduate student for part time work writing software to control an optical system in the laboratory. The software will interface with several pieces of hardware (lasers, spectrometers, stages, and cameras) and control them in a user-friendly GUI. It would also need to perform basic fitting of spectra and display results in live time during use of the system. There is flexibility in the choice of programming environment/language to be used and Professor Fischer will provide the...
