USC Earth Sciences has more than 50 graduate students working toward their doctoral degrees and engaged in research all over the world and in the laboratory.
Our academic programs include Geobiology, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Tectonics, and Climate Science, but we also encourage students to pursue interesting problems at the interfaces between these sub-disciplines and to take advantage of our research collaborations with other USC schools and departments, such as Marine Environmental Biology, the Graduate Program in Ocean Sciences, and the School of Engineering.
Many of our students are active contributors in our affiliated research centers such as the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), USC Wrigley Institute for Environment and Sustainability , and the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County
We encourage to review our research and faculty sections before applying. Applications must be submitted before January 1, for fellowship consideration.
