I have an opportunity for undergraduate and Masters-level students who might be interested in research to do an internship at the Institute for Geophysics and Tectonics at the University of Leeds over summer 2020. Projects are available on a number of topics covering earthquake seismology, tectonics, and geodynamics, and I would aim to tailor the project to suit the skills and interests of a successful candidate. I would be grateful if you could forward this on to any potential candidates - this opportunity would be ideal for students heading into their final-year of an undergraduate degree, or Masters level students, particularly any thinking of doing PhD applications in the coming year, who might like to test out a research environment. Full details, and how to apply, can be found at https://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/vacancy.aspx?ref=ENVEE1384. Potential candidates can also contact me directly (at T.J.Craig@leeds.ac.uk) to discuss the available opportunities.

I currently have two of these internships available for 5 weeks FTE (alternative arrangements involving longer durations, and lower FTE, are also possible to suit a candidates personal or academic requirements). Research Interns are classed as employees of the University of Leeds and these positions come with a taxable salary of roughly £400/wk, supported through the Royal Society. I’m afraid that, given the short duration of these positions, candidates must already be eligible to work in the UK/EU.

Many thanks,

Tim

DIG (De-risking Ireland’s Geothermal potential) will explore the
potential for low-enthalpy geothermal energy on the island of
Ireland. It will integrate multi-disciplinary, multi-scale
geophysical, geological and geochemical data by means of joint
analysis, interpretation, modelling and inversion.

The goal of this postdoctoral project—one of the 5 under DIG—is
to build a 3D thermal model and determine the regional geothermal
gradient across the island of Ireland. A very large, recently
assembled set of broadband, surface-wave measurements is one
key component of the dataset. It can constrain crustal structure
and the temperature and thickness of the mantle lithosphere.
Other essential information will come from the surface heat flow,
controlled-source seismic profiles, magnetotellurics, magnetic
and gravity anomalies, and measurements of crustal radiogenic
heat production and thermal conductivity. Thermodynamic
petrological modelling and inversion of the data will be performed
using the LitMod software tools (https://github.com/javfurchu/litmod)
for integrated modelling and inversion, with further methodological
developments, as needed, in the course of this project.

Duration: 2 years.
Salary: €37,874-45,041, depending on experience and qualifications.
Start date: as soon as possible.

Qualifications: a PhD in geophysics or a related field is required.
Substantial computing and programming experience and a good command
of English are essential. A publication record commensurate with
career stage is expected. Experience in the seismic imaging of the
lithosphere, petrological modelling and inversion, or geothermal
modelling is desirable.
