Jobs and Opportunities

[This position was previously advertised and filled, but is now reopened]

Outstanding applicants are sought for a postdoctoral research associate position that is
part of the project: Magma-Assisted Tectonics — Two-phase Dynamics of Oceanic and Continental
Rifts (RIFT-O-MAT), funded by the European Research Council from March 2019.  To learn more and
apply: https://tinyurl.com/rift-o-mat  Please see below and contact me with any questions.

The position:

Based at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, the position carries four years
of salary with generous support for conference attendance and computing. The start date is
negotiable: no sooner than 1 June 2019 but could be delayed by up to one year.


The project and role:

There is widespread recognition of the central role of magma at divergent plate boundaries.
In tectonic models, however, magmatism is treated as a by-product and is typically excluded
from the dynamics. A thorough understanding of continental rifts and mid-ocean ridges requires
consistent models of magma intrusion into the lithosphere and crust. The RIFT-O-MAT project will
analyse models in which magmatism is an integral thermal, chemical, and mechanical component.
Hence it will lead to a better understanding of the dynamics that underlies plate tectonics.
The postdoc will contribute to the development of one simulation code that combines the
canonical framework for two-phase dynamics of partially molten rocks [1] with an
visco-elastic-plastic rheology appropriate for lithospheric deformation [2]. This will
enable an internally consistent study of dikes, faults, and their interaction with ductile
deformation.

The team:

The project is lead by Prof Richard Katz and Dr Dave May.  One postdoctoral researcher has
already signed on, to begin work in June 2019.  A PhD student will join the team in 2020.
The project will host 1–2 MSc students per year.


The scientific objectives:

Continental rifting: the thermo-mechanical role of magmatism in continental rifting. In
particular, we address the question of if/when magmatism is essential for the initiation
and completion of rifting [3]. Idealised models will be developed to address each stage
of the rifting process, from inception to break-up. The East African Rift system will be
the primary geographic focus for validating models and interpreting observations.  Project
partners Ian Bastow (Imperial College London) and David Ferguson (Leeds) will collaborate
on the comparison with seismic, geodetic and petrological observations.

Mid-ocean ridges: the interaction of faults and dikes at mid-ocean ridges with two main
objectives: the first is to re-examine the bathymetric profile of the ridge axis; the
second is to re-examine the mechanics of abyssal hills.  This project will address the
question of whether variations in sea-level and magma supply can influence the spacing
of abyssal hills, following from a debate in the recent literature [4,5].  Project partners
Peter Huybers and Charles Langmuir (Harvard) and Suzanne Carbotte (LDEO) will collaborate on
the comparison with marine geophysical observations.


Applicants:

Applicants should have a background in geodynamics, theoretical and/or applied mechanics,
applied mathematics, fluid dynamics or physics.  Please see the Job Descriptions, linked
above, for essential and desirable criteria.

Other information:

The successful applicant will join the FoaLab research group at the University of Oxford
http://foalab.earth.ox.ac.uk . Cohesion and collaboration within the group are encouraged
by weekly group meetings, annual group retreats and shared office space.  The Department
of Earth Sciences is housed in a new building, custom built in 2012.  The University of
Oxford consistently ranks in the top five Universities in the world. From Oxford it is a
one hour by bus to London Heathrow Airport.  Other information about the Department and

I am looking for prospective PhD students willing to work under my supervision at the Department of Geosciences, University of Padua. The official application procedure is expected to start later in the spring, and candidates selected by our doctoral school would start their doctoral studies in the fall semester, 2019.

The thesis topic I am proposing is copied below; it would be co-supervised by Irene Molinari at INGV Bologna and Piero Poli at the University of Grenoble. The successful candidate will be fluent in English and/or Italian and will hold a master's degree in physics, acoustics, the earth sciences, or related disciplines. 

I would very much appreciate if you could diffuse this message to any potentially interested students, in your respective faculties. Interested students are encouraged to get in touch with me (lapo.boschi@unipd.it) at any time. 

Sincerely,
Lapo Boschi 

Broad-Band Time-Reversal Seismology

Supervisors: Lapo Boschi (Università di Padova),  Irene Molinari (INGV Bologna), Piero Poli (Università di Grenoble, Francia)

Efforts to image seismic rupture in space and time could provide a fundamental contribution to research in earthquake physics, but are hindered by the difficulty of determining a unique image from available data. Recent research shows that least-squares inversions of seismic and/or geodetic data lead to very non-unique, and thus unreliable solutions (Mai et al., 2016). The main alternative to least-squares inversion is currently the back-projection method, which however involves some fundamental simplifications that limit its effectiveness (e.g., Fukahata et al.2014). With this PhD thesis, we shall implement and validate an innovative method to map slip on a seismic fault, based on the concept of acoustic/seismic time reversal (e.g., Boschi et al., 2018), which does not suffer from the above limitations. 
The proposed method is designed to specifically take advantage of broadband (period from ~10 to 200s) surface-wave data. Surface waves have not been adequately exploited in rupture-imaging efforts so far. The wealth of currently under-utilised data that we will thus be able to employ is such that a breakthrough in the accuracy and resolution of seismic-source imaging can reasonably be expected. Both Love and Rayleigh waveform information will be used to constrain kinematic parameters describing the rupture. This will complement existing slip inversion methods, the majority of which are based on high frequency (~1Hz) seismic observations (body waves) or almost zero-frequency geodetic observations (GPS, Insar) but cannot benefit from the great wealth of information carried by surface-wave frequencies. Applications of our method will be aimed at large and very-large earthquakes, with faults significantly larger than typical Love and Rayleigh wavelengths. 
A feasibility test of the proposed method has already been successfully carried out by members of our team (Boschi et al., 2018). The selected PhD candidate will build on this preliminary work. Initially (months 1-12), existing software will be expanded, generalising to three dimensions the two-dimensional maps of slip obtained by the algorithm of Boschi et al. (2018). This effort will result in a first, international peer-reviewed publication. Next (months 13-20), the problem of translating the time-reversed displacement field to actual slip on a fault will be addressed via kinematic and dynamic inversions. Finally (months 21-32), our method will be applied to the study of seismic events that are usually not classified as earthquakes, i.e. so-called “slow-slip phenomena”. In particular, our surface-wave (and thus low-frequency) method should be particularly well suited to identify "very-low-frequency earthquakes" (e.g., Beroza and Ide, 2012), and the controversial slow-!
slip precursors first proposed by Ihmlé and Jordan (1994). Months 33-36 will be devoted to the redaction of the candidate's doctoral dissertation.

Within the framework of the SEAFOOD projet (Seafloor Fiber Optic Observatory for Distributed measurements), funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), we are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Researcher and a PhD student in the field of acoustics and/or seismology to work on marine applications of the cutting-edge technique of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), a new instrumental approach which has already demonstrated its large potential for the monitoring of a variety of processes in land.

DAS exploits the great sensitivity of optical fibers to acoustic perturbations to turn standard telecom cables into high density seismic arrays. The technology has been around for at least a decade and exploited in the oil and gas industry, yet there has been only a limited number of applications in Earth science. The aim of the project will be to develop its potential to provide new observations on the seafloor that advance our understanding of Earth-related processes. The exploitation of the DAS records, equivalent to an array of thousands of  sensors, will require the development of techniques for the identification and the reliable extraction of relevant signals.

You will join a dynamic group of scientists working on the approach with various applications such as seismology, marine geophysics, optics, crustal mechanics, and sedimentology.

The successful candidates are expected to have experience in signal processing and programming, to have good written and oral communication skills in English, and a result-oriented proactive attitude for publishing scientific results in top refereed journals. Knowledge of machine learning techniques will be considered a strong plus.

Postdoc details and application procedure

More on the project:

SIGHT - SeIsmic and Geochemical constraints on the Madeira HoTspot system


This project will employ a joint seismic and geochemical approach to unravel the geodynamic processes behind the generation of volcanism at Madeira hotspot. To achieve these aims, we will combine the latest advances in receiver function analyses, ambient noise tomography and H/V, SKS splitting, and noble gas (He and Ne) analyses to investigate the influence of a mantle plume in the generation of Madeira’s volcanism, and for investigating plume/lithosphere interaction. This will deliver a 3D integrated model that will offer a crisper picture of Madeira’s hotspot system and of the wider region’s structure, also contributing to the evaluation of the geothermal potential of the island. Crucially, the project will capitalize on a wealth of existing high-quality broadband seismic data, collected throughout the region for more than 20 years, which with the proposed noble gas geochemistry will allow us to deliver a solid new perspective on the origin of hotspots in the NE Atla!
ntic.


Key Questions 

. Is Madeira’s volcanism fed by a deep-seated mantle plume?
. Do the Madeira and Canary hotspots have a common or distinct origin?
. What is the lithospheric nature of the corridor between the Canaries and the Atlas-Gibraltar?

An interesting by-product of SIGHT is a contribution to the evaluation of the geothermal potential of Madeira, which has a direct societal application.

Project Tasks

Task 1 - Data Assembling
Task 2 - 3D Imaging of Madeira crustal structure using both seismic ambient noise and earthquake data
Task 3 - Geochemical constraints on the depth of the mantle contributions to the Madeira magmatism.
Task 4 - Imaging the main inner earth discontinuities and mantle anisotropy
Task 5 Synthesis and geodynamical interpretation


Project Team

The project involves a large international team between Instituto Dom Luiz/University of Lisbon (PI: Graca Silveira, João Mata, José Madeira, Ricardo Ramalho, Susana Custódio, Luís Matias, among others), University College London (Ana Ferreira), Institute of Earth Sciences Jaume Almera, Barcelona (Martin Schimmel), University of Cambridge (Sanne Cottaar) and Instituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Rome (Claudia Piromallo).

To encourage collaborative research between IRIS member institutions and international partners, we invite international undergraduate students to apply for internships to perform seismological research relating to geological hazards. This program aims to create new research and educational opportunities for international undergraduates and to cultivate long-term partnerships across borders. Financial support is provided by the David Simpson Innovation Fund.

International undergraduate interns are financially supported to:
Be jointly mentored by a U.S. based researcher at an IRIS member institution and a researcher at the student’s home institution.
Undertake research at an IRIS member institution for a period lasting between 8 to 10 weeks over the summer and continue the research at their home institution after the summer internship concludes.
Participate in the week-long IRIS REU orientation held at the PASSCAL Instrument Center at New Mexico Tech in Socorro (May 27 to May 31). The REU orientation provides international students the opportunity to meet interns in the IRIS REU program to build community, receive an overview of some of the most exciting aspects of modern seismology, and develop research skills.
Present results from the internship at the Fall AGU meeting or equivalent professional meeting.

Support includes a living stipend ($700/week, minus taxes), visa application fees (up to $400), and other consumables (up to $500). Funds to cover these expenses will be managed through a no-overhead grant/award from IRIS to the U.S. host institution. IRIS will also directly cover or reimburse expenses related to travel for the internship and to attend a professional meeting.

The application must consist of two separate submissions, coordinated between the mentors and the international student:
A scientific research project proposal developed jointly by the U.S.-based host at an IRIS member institution and the international collaborator based in a country affected by geological hazards (earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, etc.)
A statement by the international (non-U.S. based) student that focuses on his or her research interests and qualifications

Research projects in seismology should focus on studies related to geologic hazards and the basic science underlying these hazards. Projects should extend beyond current research collaborations and represent new research directions for the student involved, rather than a continuation of current research. We especially encourage applications/projects that represent new partnerships between PIs that have not worked together in the past. Strong preference will be given to projects involving partner institutions from developing countries and/or countries with limited existing resources for research opportunities in geophysics and seismology for undergraduates.

The program covers visa application fees, but the host’s U.S. institution is responsible for helping the international students obtain an appropriate visa (typically J-1). As part of developing the proposal, U.S. hosts should consult with their appropriate campus office (e.g. international student office or equivalent) regarding the visa application process and how best to provide the stipend (through payroll, reimbursement, or per diem). The host must demonstrate that they have the ability to successfully assist with the visa application process and support international student interns on campus.

While this is intended as a summer internship program, if another time period is more suitable based on the home institutions academic calendar there is flexibility in this regard. Be sure to state in the proposal if another time period is preferred.

General questions should be addressed to Anne Meltzer (ameltzer@lehigh.edu). If you experience any problems with the application process, please contact Andy Frassetto (andyf@iris.edu).

2 yr Postdoc in Seismology

A two-year postdoc position is available for application in the RANNIS
(Icelandic Research Council) project IS-NOISE; Investigation of seismic
velocity changes in Icelandic crust, using ambient noise. It is a
three-year project that started early this year. The project is managed
by the Icelandic Meteorological Office in Reykjavík and the Royal
Observatory of Belgium and includes partners from Uppsala University,
the Earth Science Institute of Iceland and others. The project aims at
using correlation analysis of ambient noise to evaluate temporal changes
of seismic velocities which may reflect changes in the crust. By
analyzing small temporal changes in the coda of the cross-correlation
functions, one can extract tiny seismic velocity changes in the medium,
down to 0.01%. The project aims at studying temporal and spatial seismic
velocity changes at 6 different volcanoes, 1 fault zone and 1 geothermal
area. The 6 volcanoes are: Bárðarbunga, Grimsvötn, Katla, Hekla,
Eyjafjallajökull and Öræfajökull. The researcher will be responsible for
studying the volcanoes including: 1. Characterizing the ambient noise
(frequency content, coherence) for long time series (several years of
data) in each volcanic area 2. Cross-correlation and seismic velocity
measurements using state-of-the-art computer codes (e.g., MSNoise) 3.
Analyzing the dv/v results to isolate volcano-related signals e.g. from
seasonal effects (environmental & seasonal effects from rainfall, snow,
temperature) and compare them with deformation (GNSS and InSAR) and
seismic data The aim of this project is also to generalize the
processing methods to apply them to any target in Iceland and evaluate
its potential as a daily volcano monitoring tool in Iceland. The
projects ‘website can be found here: http://is-noise.earth This 2-year
full time position is open as from 1 March 2019, at the Met Office in
Reykjavik, Iceland. Long stays at the Royal Observatory of Belgium are
also possible (1 to 4 months per year). The postdoc will work under the
supervision of Kristín Jónsdóttir, Thomas Lecocq and Corentin Caudron.

The values of the Icelandic Meteorological Office are: Knowledge,
Reliability, Forward seeking and Cooperation. The values are used as a
frame of reference in the hiring process.

Deadline for the application is 27 January 2018. The new Postdoc is
expected to start no later than March 2019. Applicants should attach a
detailed CV were education and past work experience is outlined,
especially past research experience as well as a PhD certificate and a
list of publications and include at least one recommendation letter.

User engagement with renewable energy: what works in theory and what is done in practice?
Supervisors: Dr Rosie Robison and Dr Mel Rohse, Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK
Advisors: Dr Corinna Abesser and Mrs Hazel Napier, British Geological Survey, UK
Start date: September 2019, fully funded (annual stipend + fee waiver + additional study expenses) for 3 years
Deadline: 3 March 2019

This PhD will explore how, and how effectively, different user engagement theories are being applied in local and integrated renewable energy projects. It will use a range of case studies to investigate how user engagement is implemented by energy scientists in the context of a low-carbon energy transition, and make recommendations for future projects, particularly in terms of bringing social user engagement understandings to technical project leads.

The design and delivery of new energy systems for a low-carbon economy depend on end-user engagement with new technologies. Whilst a growing body of energy social science explores technology use and acceptance, little work has been done on how energy project leads may actively utilise this research to inform and qualitatively engage with end users, and how effective their efforts are. Practical applications also remain dominated by theories of behaviour change narrowly emphasising individuals’ behaviours.

This innovative PhD will focus on questions surrounding, for example (but not limited to) 1/ what user engagement theories are mobilised by technical project leads, 2/ how they are then used in specific socio-economic contexts, including social aspects of engagement and communication with end users, and 3/ how effective they are.

This is a collaboration with the British Geological Survey (BGS), the UK’s main authority on geoscience. BGS will support access to relevant energy projects, including a wide energy-focused stakeholder base. Additional study expenses will be provided by BGS. Findings will also feed into the ‘User engagement, preferences and behaviours’ work package of the EPSRC EnergyREV consortium, funded under the Industrial Strategy ‘Prospering from the energy revolution’ theme.

The successful candidate will likely have experience of qualitative research methods and hold a relevant social science Masters, or have equivalent experience.

Further details:
- This PhD opportunity is part of ARU’s wider Vice Chancellor PhD studentship programme. More details can be found here, including on the application process.
- Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Dr Rosie Robison (rosie.robison@anglia.ac.uk) to discuss the PhD opportunity further.
- The annual stipend will track UKRI levels across the three years, which was set at £14,777/year for 2018-2019 and is to be confirmed for 2019-2020.
- Only EU/UK nationals are eligible to apply.

Warm climate, high seas. How did sea level change in Europe during the Last Interglacial?

This PhD project forms part of the €2 million European Research Council Starting Grant, “Rates of Interglacial Sea-Level Change and Responses” (RISeR) which aims to advance our understanding of the magnitude, rates and drivers of sea-level change during the Last Interglacial, to inform both global and regional sea-level projections beyond 2100. RISeR is focusing on developing a state-of-the-art Last Interglacial sea level record from northwest Europe.

Relative sea-level changes in northwest Europe are a consequence of change in the volume and distribution of water in the global ocean, but also solid earth processes as a result of regional loading by ice sheets during glacial periods (termed glacial isostatic adjustment, GIA). This PhD project will develop a regional GIA model to understand the solid earth response in northwest Europe during the Last Interglacial. The student will use a new generation of ice-sheet models within a global GIA model to compare to and interpret the new Last Interglacial relative sea-level reconstructions produced by the wider RISeR project. This work will provide the first regional Last Interglacial glacial-isostatic adjustment model and a statistical assessment of the likelihood of different melt water sources to the Last Interglacial highstand and their contribution to relative sea-level change in northwest Europe.

The project will be supervised by Dr Natasha Barlow, Dr Lauren Gregoire (Leeds) and Dr Natalya Gomez (McGill, Canada) with the potential for a research visit to Canada. You will be able to access the excellent centralised training provided by the University of Leeds. This is a fully-funded project open to UK/EU citizens who have a background in Geosciences, mathematics, physics or a related discipline, with a minimum British BSc 2.1 (or equivalent), or a related Master's degree. Some experience in computer modelling would be a benefit. A keen interest in environmental change is desirable, in particular in climate and sea-level change. A willingness to contribute to the wider research programme and work within a larger team is essential.

Deadline for applications: 31st January 2019. Please apply via the University of Leeds website and further details can be found about the PhD project at www.natashabarlow.co.uk

We are recruiting Earth Scientists
Client Relationship Representatives – Americas Region
Company
Güralp is a world leader in the design, manufacture and installation of sophisticated seismic instrumentation. Our systems are used by Universities, Governments, the UN Test Ban Treaty Organisation and companies in the Civil Engineering and Energy sectors. We are the only British company in this dynamic market.
We have built well over 25,000 instruments over the last 30+ years and they are deployed literally all over the world, including deep under the sea, in the Polar Regions, down boreholes and in portable and temporary surface arrays. They detect and warn of earthquakes, monitor weapons tests, track active volcanoes, trace active fault zones and record induced seismicity resulting from human activity. We operate through a global network of 30 distributors, who represent us around the world. Over 95% of our revenues are from outside the UK.
We are now expanding our global presence and opening a US subsidiary, Güralp Systems Incorporated (GSI), based in Dallas, Texas that will represent Güralp in the North American and Latin American regions. We are looking for individuals who can understand and articulate the customer need, hence our focus on people with an Earth Science or Engineering background, who also have a commercial “edge”, perhaps, for example, with some experience of technical sales.
Role
The primary role, as a Client Relationship Representative, in a start-up office environment, is customer facing. So you would be directly involved with our customers, distributors and partners, managing many aspects of our commercial relationships with our market. As your experience and knowledge grows, there will be opportunities for international travel (hence a valid passport will be required) and you will also play a role in our international marketing activities.
Future career development will depend on our growth as a business in the Americas region. Growth will offer new opportunities in commercial and technical management roles, serving a growing regional client base.
To support your development at Güralp we have a comprehensive induction program that include spending time in the UK headquarters including time in our production and engineering facilities, repairs and customer support teams and potentially undertaking some fieldwork. This will all contribute to your understanding of how the company operates and our products are built and used, enabling you to become quickly effective in this commercial role.
Requirements
We are looking for people with Bachelors, Masters or PhD degrees with preference for Earth Science, Physics or Engineering based degrees. Experience in Seismology or Geophysics would be welcome but not essential. Candidates should already have the right to work in the United States.
Candidates should be self-starters with an interest in pursuing a commercial managerial career, in high-tech business, international business. We are especially looking for some key characteristics that are perhaps more important than academic qualifications. These skills and attributes can be summarised as the ability to:
work in a team – internally and externally, cross culture and cross discipline
sell your ideas and convince other people to follow your plan
communicate effectively – verbally and in writing
operate in a connected market − our customers form a social, scientific and business community
take responsibility for owning and managing a problem - and solving it
learn quickly − you will want to learn and grow, and accept a degree of ambiguity
demonstrate drive to achieve success, to win against competitors.
be well organised and able to prioritise and manage conflicting demands
The language skills to be communicate confidently for business in Spanish would be an advantage.
Confidence with technology is important − you will use IT and social media, and happy to be “always on”. We also value a spirit of adventure - and a “can-do” attitude − you will have perhaps done something adventurous
Recruitment process, package and next steps
If you would like to be considered please send covering letters along with your Resumes to recruitment@guralp.com as soon as possible - and ideally before 25th November. Short listed candidates would be asked to participate in a phone interview; if that is positive, then the plan would be to arrange a face to face meeting with the President of GSI and the group Güralp Chief Commercial Officer. Currently anticipated time windows for meetings in 2018 are:
December 10th - 14th in Washington D.C. at the annual AGU conference.
December 17th - 18th in Dallas, Texas. at or near GSI’s offices
We anticipate hiring up to two people, with the aim of starting employment around February 2019. We will be offering a competitive salary including benefits depending on experience and qualifications, and a limited relocation allowance, in the form of accommodation support while establishing a base.
If this is not right for you, please do pass it on to friends and colleagues who you feel may be interested.

Institution: University of Strasbourg
Open Until: 2019-03-01

The Seismology team at University of Strasbourg (France) is seeking a
postdoctoral researcher to investigate the initiation of large
earthquakes using near-fault observations. This project aims to
extract the physics of earthquake nucleation using a new approach to
the modeling of fault slip evolution over time.

Although it is well established that some events are preceded by
foreshocks, it is still unclear whether these foreshocks belong to a
cascade of random failures leading to the mainshock or if they are
markers of aseismic slip during the nucleation process. The postdoc in
this position will assess these competing models by discriminating
seismic and aseismic processes during the initiation of recent large
earthquakes. This will rely on a unified probabilistic approach
combining geodesy and seismology to infer the evolution of slip and
stress evolution before large earthquakes.

A PhD in geophysics and experience in the analysis of geodetic
measurements are required. Some programing skills in languages such as
C, C++ and python are also highly desired. The successful candidate
will be expected to perform data processing, analysis and modeling
using high-performance computing and publish scientific results in top
refereed journals. Funding is guaranteed for 2 year, with a
possibility of continuation (funding secured through an ERC Starting
Grant).

The University of Strasbourg Earth's Science department (EOST) covers
a large domain of Earth Sciences, and offers excellent research
conditions. With a large proportion of international students and
