University of South Florida
Open Until: 10/16/2020
The School of Geosciences at the University of South Florida seeks to fill a Postdoctoral Scholar position to join the seismology group. This is a full-time 12-month position with a starting date expected no later than January 4th, 2021. Initial funding is for one year with possibility for annual renewal. The selected candidate will join the seismology group to work on the project “Improving Small Event Characterization and Determination of Moment Tensor Uncertainties.” The Postdoctoral Scholar will work with a large dataset of broadband seismic waveforms, as well as synthetic waveforms generated from 3D seismic wavefield simulations. The project will involve applications and also methodological developments for estimating moment tensors. The candidate is also encouraged to develop her/his own research agenda. Health benefits will be offered through the USF Postdoctoral Scholar health insurance program
Appointment as a Postdoctoral Scholar requires a doctoral-level degree preferably in geophysics, seismology, physics, or computational sciences involving data analysis and programming. Candidates with a non-US degree will be required to provide proof of degree equivalency. The successful candidate must meet university criteria for appointment to the rank of Postdoctoral Scholar.
The ideal candidate will have a PhD in geophysics/seismology, be a highly motivated, independent researcher, and have experience in seismic moment tensor analysis and/or seismic waveform modeling. The project is computationally intensive, and part of the analyses will be conducted using the High-Performance Computing facilities at USF and other project partner institutions such as the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
