Drs. Waters-Tormey and Kinner seek to fill two positions for paid research funded by a University of North Carolina System Collaboratory grant. The funded project addresses causes of landslides in western North Carolina in collaboration with the NC Geologic Survey. The position has both field and digital data and mapping components, some training for both of which will be provided. The position will also involve collaboration with NC Geologic Survey geologists, and mentorship of current WCU geology students (mostly as field assistants). Applicants must be available to work up to 4 field days per week (weather permitting), with any remaining time spent on data management and mapping software mostly on the WCU campus. This position is for January 15 to May 15, 2019, and has the potential for extension into summer 2019 and the 2019 fall semester. Contact Dr. Cheryl Waters-Tormey (email@example.com) for more information.
