Postdoctoral Associate in Earthquake Seismology at Cornell
The Cornell Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences has an opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher with interests in imaging with broadband and high-frequency seismic arrays. Several arrays have been deployed across subduction zones in recent years, allowing high-resolution full-wavefield sampling of complex structure in the thrust zone, volcanic arc and underlying mantle of these critical regions. The postdoctoral researcher will make use of these data and modern computational methods, emphasizing recently-collected onshore and offshore arrays from Alaska and Cascadia. The specifics of the project are flexible depending on the applicant's interest and experience.
Candidates must hold a PhD in geophysics or a related field by the time of hire. The successful applicant should have experience with the analysis of earthquake seismic waveforms for earth structure, and a strong record of peer-reviewed publication. The postdoc will be part of an active group in geophysics and will be involved in mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. Applicants from underrepresented groups in earth sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. The position is initially for one year, and renewable depending upon performance. Please contact Geoff Abers (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
