This posting is to advertise an opening for a PhD student in volcano seismology, with a focus on imaging the Valles Caldera supervolcano, NM. This recently funded grant, EAR-2113367, is led by PIs Julien Chaput at UTEP and Brandon Schmandt at UNM, with a start date of fall 2021.

About the project:

The Valles caldera, one of three Quaternary-active supervolcanoes in North America and the textbook example of a resurgent caldera, has largely escaped seismic scrutiny in the past two decades. This proposal aims to advance constraints on the magmatic system beneath Valles caldera including the spatial extent and severity of melt structures, depth and emplacement of scattering boundaries, and assessment of the assumed aseismic nature of the caldera system. Ambient noise seismic interferometry will be leveraged to estimate dispersion curves for long period Rayleigh and Love waves, and these will be jointly inverted in a transdimensional Bayesian scheme with receiver functions, H/V ratios, and noise autocorrelations to accurately estimate velocity structures under the Valles caldera. Targets include bounding the spatial extent and concentration of melt through shear-wave velocity and Vp/Vs estimates, depth to magmatic structures and caldera fill under the resurgent dome throug!
h scattered wave analysis, and detection and location of any local seismicity that may reveal magma and fluid movements and challenge the assumption that the Valles caldera is aseismic.

Qualifications: 
Applicants should have good knowledge of geophysics and mathematics.
Experience with interpretative coding languages is desired (e.g., Python, Matlab).
Experience writing and publishing scientific articles is an advantage.
Applicants must be proficient in both written and oral English.

Funding:
This grant guarantees 3 years of funding; additional funding will be provided commensurate on progress and performance.

A postdoctoral researcher with AE experience in a laboratory and/or field setting is being sought for a 2-year appointment at the University of Calgary.

In situ acoustic emission (AE) field studies will be undertaken in a quarry environment to characterize dilatancy and microfracturing (mm to cm scale) induced by small-scale fluid injection into a naturally fractured and stratified siltstone rock. AEs are indicative of weakening of the rock prior to the formation of macroscopic fractures and will be measured continuously over several days in shallow (20m) fluid-filled boreholes. This work will be carried out in conjunction with other passive measurements using optical fibres, with the overall aim of characterizing the geomechanical behaviour of the fractured rock mass. 

Qualifications:

  • The applicant must have a PhD in geophysics, geotechnical engineering or closely related discipline; 
  • Previous experience in processing and interpretation of AE data is required;
  • Strong record of publishing peer-reviewed research;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills;
  • The applicant must be capable of working in a self-directed manner within a team environment.

All applications must include:

  • cover letter including date of availability, suitability and motivation for the role;
  • statement of research interests;
  • current curriculum vitae (CV) (2 pages)
  • official or unofficial copies of diplomas / university certificates; and
  • contact information including email addresses for three (3) references to support the application.

Review of applications will begin on June 15, 2021 and will continue until a suitable applicant is found. Only those applicants selected for interviews will be contacted.

Postdoctoral Research Associate position to study earthquake triggering and forecasting

Imperial College London
London, UK

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Research Associate to study the physical and statistical correlations that may exist between induced or triggered seismicity, potential triggering factors and a range of measurable geological and geophysical attributes.

The successful candidate with join an interdisciplinary team bringing together academics and researchers from the fields of civil engineering, engineering seismology, seismology, geophysics and geology from the departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Earth Science & Engineering.

The role will primarily involve the application of statistical techniques, such as regression analysis and more general geo-spatial analysis methods to datasets associated with induced earthquake activity.   However, an understanding of the underlying geophysical processes will be of great value.

The project will focus upon the analysis of relatively small-magnitude induced earthquakes, but the inferences made from these relatively controlled environmental conditions may also have practical utility for improving forecasting of tectonic earthquake occurrence.

This is a fixed term position for one year, with a possibility for extension.

* Contract Type: Full-time, Fixed-term for 3 years

* Enquiries concerning this position should be directed to Antony Morris (amorris@plymouth.ac.uk).

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work on the NERC-funded project “The 3D anatomy of magma transport at fast-spreading ocean ridges”. The project aims to determine along-axis variations in migration pathways followed by magma as it entered and exited from an axial melt lens system preserved within the Oman ophiolite, the world’s best analogue for fast-spreading oceanic lithosphere. It will combine magnetic fabric, paleomagnetic and geochemical methods to develop a comprehensive model for the anatomy of oceanic magmatic systems, using the rock record to test and challenge current paradigms for seafloor spreading processes. The project will involve fieldwork in Oman, and will build upon our recent research demonstrating variable flow trajectories in lower crustal gabbos (see Morris et al., 2019, Geology47, 275-278, doi: 10.1130/G45442.1).
 
You will be working within the Centre for Research in Earth Sciences in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/research/earth-sciences) within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, where you will conduct detailed magnetic analyses of an extensive suite of igneous samples collected by you in Oman. You will also spend six months in total at Cardiff University carrying out geochemical data collection. You will work within a multidisciplinary team of investigators consisting of Professor Antony Morris (paleomagnetism and geodynamics; Plymouth), Dr Michelle Harris (petrology and geochemistry; Plymouth), Professor Chris MacLeod (tectonics and geochemistry; Cardiff) and Dr Benoit Ildefonse (structural geology and electron backscatter diffraction; Montpellier). 

The role requires essential specialist knowledge and experience of magnetic methods (magnetic anisotropy and/or paleomagnetism) applied to geological/tectonic problems. A complementary understanding of geochemical methods is desirable but not essential.
