Bryan Wathen is the Assistant Building Manager!
We seek two postdocs and a PhD student to join a new NSF EarthCube (http://earthcube.org) project aimed at addressing a ‘grand challenge’ in the Earth sciences: to seamlessly blend geochronological information into an integrated four-dimensional digital Earth so that we may fully understand dynamic Earth system evolution through time. We envision that these postdocs will work as a team with the PIs during the 3 year tenure of this grant. We recognize that few applicants for these positions will have all skills equally developed; as such, cross-training is part of the project goal for all participants.

This award is for providing an outstanding review for the AGU journal G-cubed. Congratulations Brian!
Allen was awarded a grant from GSA for his project: 4-dimensional insights into silicic magma reservoir dynamics from young Southern Andean plutons. Congratulations Allen!
Brad Singer helped prepare a document for the National Science Foundation that highlights the challenges and opportunities faced by geochronologists. A link to the document can be found here: Geochronology Report 2015
