We are currently recruiting for a 3-year Senior Research Associate position to study the use of DAS for seismic imaging in urban areas. For further details on the role and to apply, please visit the link below: 


This position is funded by “DarkSeis", a new EPSRC-funded grant between the University of Bristol (James Verdon, Max Werner), the University of Oxford (Mike Kendall) and the BGS (Jon Chambers). 

The post-holder will participate in field campaigns to acquire active-source and passive seismic data using DAS with fibre-optic cables in and around the city of Bristol. They will then lead the processing of the resulting datasets, developing novel methods that leverage the particular qualities of DAS datasets. Given the large volumes of data produced by DAS, we anticipate that machine learning will play a significant role in the processing workflows developed as part of the project.

The closing date for applications is the 26th February. Please forward this to anyone who you think would be interested.

Note that not all supervisors are taking on new lab personnel. Contact potential supervisors prior to applying.

About this award:
This endowed award was created thanks to a bequest from Dorothy M. Deane, widow of the late Prof Roger E Deane, an alumnus of the Department of Geology, University of Toronto (U of T). Prof Deane obtained a PhD in 1949 under the supervision of Prof Alexander Maclean, and returned to U of T as a faculty member in 1955, pursuing research in the areas of glacial geology and Pleistocene paleoenvironments. Prof Deane served as the inaugural Director of Research at the U of T Great Lakes Institute which eventually contributed to the founding of the U of T School of the Environment. Prof Deane died in a tragic boating accident near Tobermory, Ontario in 1965 while undertaking field work. 

Salary
CAD$61,000 per year

Term 
The term is 1 year, with the possibility of renewal for 1 additional year. This is a full-time, in-person position.

The Alaska Earthquake Center is a cooperative environment where well-empowered collaborative teams execute projects and operations. The duties of a Seismic Analyst are to analyze and evaluate Earthquake Center seismic data to (1) curate the comprehensive catalog of seismic events in Alaska; (2) monitor the quality of the Earthquake Center’s seismic waveforms and catalog; and (3) investigate and report unusual events that appear in our data.

To thrive in this role you must enjoy working with people, solving puzzles, and uncovering unique signals to better understand Alaska’s distinct environment regarding hazard, risk management, and research. While a degree and background in geophysics or geology are preferred, many can excel with a background in solving time-series data. This position requires an applicant to work on-call at times and weekends when large earthquakes occur - but - does allow for overtime.

There are also opportunities to work with the Field Team performing maintenance on the 250 stations across Alaska, work with the Systems Team to engineer software solutions, or as part of the Communications Team to relay information and science to the public.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until a successful candidate is identified. Review of application materials will begin immediately. Search and selection procedures will be closed when a sufficient and viable number of qualified candidates have been identified.
To be eligible for this position, applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States without restriction. Applicants who now or may in the future require visa sponsorship to work in the United States are not eligible.
