Professor Charles Langmuir's research focuses on the solid earth geochemical cycle. His first book, How to Build a Habitable Planet: The Story of Earth from the Big Bang to Humankind, serves as an introduction to the origin and evolution of Earth, from the Big Bang through the rise of human civilization. His next book will address similar topics, but appeal to a wider audience. Professor Langmuir is looking for a research assistant to conduct fact checks and background research, prep figures, read chapters and provide feedback.
