Research Opportunities

The Departments of Geophysics and Electrical Engineering  and the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University represent centers of excellence in radar, exploration and near surface geophysics, and the mechanics and dynamics of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary systems. This provides a unique and exciting intellectual environment within which to study and practice Radio Glaciology.

Prospective PhD students and postdocs interested in the development and use of geophysical radar to study the interaction, evolutiong, and physical processes of ice and water in Earth and Planetary systems should feel free to contact Dustin.M.Schroeder@Stanford.edu to discuss potential projects in one or more of our core research areas. Prospective students can also get a sense of our group's research culture from our group expectations document.

Students with strong backgrounds in physics, mathematics, engineering, geophysics, or astrophysics as well as interests in any of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply:

  • Computational Electromagnetics
  • Exploration or Near Surface Geophysics
  • Geophysical Glaciology
  • Ice Sheet Hydrology
  • Ice Sheet Modeling
  • Planetary Geophysics
  • Radar Science and Engineering
  • Remote Sensing
  • Signal Processing

Our research group is lead by a first-generation college student and we are committed building and sustaining a group that is a supportive educational and research home for students from a diverse range of backrounds. We are particularly proud of our collaborations with SURGE, DARE, and El Centro at Stanford and are always looking for partners in supporting students at Stanford and beyond. 

Undergraduate students that are interested in the development, deployment, and application of ice penetrating radar systems should also contact Dustin.M.Schroeder@Stanford.edu about current opportunities in our lab.
