PhD Project in Nice France
University Côte d'Azur
Open Until: 03/24/2017
One PhD project (3 years +1 year abroad) is available at University Côte d'Azur, Nice area in France, under the national label « Initiative of Excellence » UCA-JEDI. The project aims at improving the imagery of earthquake ruptures acknowledging for 3D complexities in the Earth structure. The project will take advantage of in-house cutting-edge wave simulation programs and newly available high-resolution tomographic models to quantify (1) the bias of the classic 1D Earth structure approximation and (2) the potential of extended seismograms to improve the description of earthquake rupture (so called finite-fault source models). This is a 4 years position with the equivalent of 1 year to be spent abroad, over the course of the PhD, at one of the partner institutions (California Institute of Technology, USA, University of Liverpool, UK). The position will open in September 2017 and the student will be based at Géoazur, laboratory, next to Nice.
A master degree in Earth sciences or physics is preferred. Computing skills are highly appreciated. Proficiency in written and spoken English is mandatory.
The application should be adressed to Dr. Anthony Sladen (sladen -at- geoazur.unice.fr) and should include CV, names of references, motivation letter, including specific interests and prior experience in areas related to the project. Competition for scholarships is fierce, and successful applicants will likely have high undergraduate records. Applications will be considered until March 24th, 2017. A very competitive package of salary (salary of about 2500€/month) and employee benefits is offered, as well as privileged conditions of accommodation.
