Research Opportunities

Undergraduate students

Each year there are typically one or two positions for undergraduate students to join the research group to work on a project related to one of the ongoing research efforts. Undergraduates interested in gaining research experience should contact Richard Allen (at any time during the academic year) to discuss current opportunities.

Graduate students

Every year there are positions available for graduate students to join the research group in any of the group's areas of interest: seismic imaging, tomography, crust and mantle processes, seismicity, the earthquake source, real-time earthquake information, and earthquake early warning. If you are interested in applying you should contact Richard Allen to disuss your interests and possible research projects.

Prospective students must apply to the graduate program in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. Information about the program along with instructions on preparing your application are here. If you join this group you will be fully funded (stipend and tuition) for the duration of your studies. The application deadline is late December. It is important to have taken the GRE by the time of application. For applicants whose native language is not English, you will also need to take the TOEFL exam by the time of your application. For questions about the research program or the application process contact Richard Allen.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoc positions are usually advertised when available. However, if you are interested in joining the group as a postdoc you should contact Richard Allen to express your interest. Funding may be available.
