Chevron Center of Research Excellence (CoRE)
Department of Geology and Geological Engineering, Colorado School of Mines
The Chevron Center of Research Excellence (CoRE) is an innovative industry-academic partnership between the Colorado School of Mines and Chevron that promotes world-class research and education; we collaborate closely with Chevron Energy Technology Company (ETC) researchers. CoRE focuses on scientific and technical challenges faced by the energy industry. We specialize in deepwater, fluvial, and shallow marine stratigraphy using a quantitative outcrop characterization research approach. The majority of our research involves fieldwork.
Each year, CoRE supports 4-6 graduate students pursing M.S. or Ph.D. degrees which entail research in one of the Center's focus areas. Learn more about CoRE's research.
For Fall 2014, we're looking for Ph.D or M.S. students to specialize in:
- Shallow marine stratigraphy
- Fluvial stratigraphy
- Deepwater stratigraphy
