If you are interested in studying Earth History at Harvard, or find a particular aspect of our work interesting, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We are always looking for motivated and interested parties.

Graduate students (through EPS), undergraduates, and post-docs are all welcome. We are particularly looking for graduate student applications in 2020 who

1. seek to interrogate modern microbial metabolisms (namely sulfate reduction and sulfur disproportionation) in an effort to calibrate physiological responses to changing environmental conditions, and

2. are interested in studying Earth history with novel isotopic systems (multiple sulfur and multiple oxygen isotope systems)

We no longer consider GRE scores in evaluating an applicant’s capacity to conduct PhD level research.

As a lab, we encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to reach out. We strive for a fully inclusive and supported work environment and welcome all that are interested in these scientific pursuits.

Interested students are encouraged to contact Professor Johnston directly.
