Offshore Fault Evaluation Group, Research and Development (R&D) Center for Earthquake and Tsunami (CEAT) , JAMSTEC is soliciting applications for two positions as Project Engineer. The successful applicants on a project entitled “Comprehensive Evaluation of Offshore Fault Information Project” and sub-projects entitled "Collection of offshore seismic data and construction of database" (FY2013-FY2019, Co-investigator Shoshiro Shimizu) and "Unified data processing for collected data and interpretation of faults" (FY2013-FY2019, Co-Investigator Narumi Takahashi) . 

The project aims to interpret the distribution of faults in areas surrounding Japan using collected geophysical and geological data along with some reflection seismic data to be re-processed as needed. Additionally, velocity structures obtained by an ocean bottom seismometer (in addition to the velocity data acquired by seismic data processing) are applied to determine the fault distribution in depth domain.

[Description of Work] 

As one team member for funded research, the successful applicant will carry out one of the following two types of duties. 

Job Type 1 

1)Conduct reflection seismic data re-processing to the following objectives: 

・unify data processing for collection of seismic data, 

・apply noise reduction processing if necessary. 

2)Interpret fault distribution using seismic reflection data with consideration of the following aspects: 

・relation between velocity structure and fault stretching in depth, 

・fault continuity including seafloor topography, 

・fault matching with successive seismic sections. 

3)Construct 3D velocity structure for the time-to-depth conversion of seismic sections and fault depths. 

4)Assist with the presentation of materials 

5)Perform other duties designated by the department 

Job Type 2 

1)Interpret fault distribution using seismic reflection data with consideration the following aspects: 

・relation between velocity structure and fault stretching in depth, 

・fault continuity including seafloor topography, 

・fault matching with successive seismic sections. 

2)Carry out geological interpretation with consideration of the following aspects: 

・correlation between well data and seismic reflection data, 

・interpretation of main seismic horizons such as acoustic basement and geological unconformities. 

3)Assist with the presentation materials. 

4)Perform other duties designated by the department. 

[Relevant Research Fields] 

Experiences in seismology, geophysics, geology, geochemistry, lithology and earth science 

[Requirements] 

The successful applicant must have a bachelor's degree in a closely related field. Applicants who have equivalent ability through extensive experience will also be considered. 

・Applicants should have an interest in research for disaster prevention and reduction. 

・Work experience in reflection seismic data processing and seismic interpretation are desirable. 

・Research work is conducted using dedicated software on workstation, therefore, experience with server maintenance in the Unix/Linux environment is required.                  

・Fluent Japanese is required to negotiate data management involving many research institutes in Japan. 

*Persons of any nationality and either gender are encouraged to apply.
