Graduate Assistantship, New Mexico Highlands University

Graduate assistantships are available for students wishing to pursue an MS in Geology beginning Fall 2018 term. The NMHU Environmental Geology Program strengths are in mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, rock-paleomagnetism, structural geology, volcanology, and collaborative endeavors in hydrogeology and environmental sciences. The NSF-Funded Paleomagnetic-Rock Magnetic, Powder X-Ray Diffraction, and Water Chemistry labs support wide-ranging analytical research. We recently received a three-year NSF grant to fund an international research experience in the Czech Republic and we are particularly interested in students with interests in volcanology, geophysics, geochemistry, and petrology to participate in this project. The NMHU campus in Las Vegas, NM is situated at the boundary of the Great Plains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and is located near several world-renowned geologic features. A low student:faculty ratio and state-of-the art laboratory facilities provide students with a superior learning experience. The graduate assistantship includes a nine-month stipend and tuition waiver per academic year. Application review begins 03/16/18.
