Postdoctoral in Seismology (DEEP Project).

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS) invites applications for a 14-month postdoctoral position in seismology. The focus of the position is on non-linear wave propagation and broad band deformation signal, close to faults. The position is at the Geophysics Section, DIAS, and is funded through the DEEP project.

DEEP is financed through GEOTHERMICA, a cofund between the European Commission and various National Funding Agencies. It is closely aligned to its predecessor, the COSEISMIQ project, in terms of its overall goals.

The aim of this postdoctoral project is to better understand how to extract near borehole fault zone property information, using borehole DAS and geophone string data for a deep geothermal field.  The focus is to identify and study subtle features in wave propagation (e.g. non-linear and attenuation effects) that hold information about the physical conditions of near borehole faults. Data are already available to the project through other partners in the consortium. There is no field element to this work.  Experience in handling large seismological datasets is essential as is experience in numerical simulations of wave propagation. Previous experience in non-linear wave effects will be an advantage. 

Duration: 14-month

Salary:  €37,874- €40,221 depending on experience and qualifications.

Start date:  As soon as possible.

Qualifications: A PhD in seismology is required. Substantial computing and programming experience and a good command of English are essential. A publication record commensurate with career stage is expected.   

To apply: e-mail a complete academic CV and a 250 word (max) statement on your interest in and fit for the position, to https://dias.ie/applypostdocseismology

Closing Date: Application Closed.
