Graduate Student OpportunityWe have an opening for a M.S. student beginning in Fall 2013.  The student will be part of a project to determine the extent and timing of changes in the Antarctic ice sheet during the last glacial maximum and termination.  Work will involve surficial mapping and collection of samples for dating.  The successful applicant will have an excellent academic record and be in good physical shape.  He/She should enjoy living and working outside.  Prior remote field experience, as well as coursework in glacial geology/ paleoclimatology, is a plus.  For more information, contact Dr. Brenda Hall (
