Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Experimental Rock Mechanics

Date: 10/17/2011

Postdoc opportunity forwarded from Emily Brodsky, UCSC:

Looking for a postdoctoral fellow to pursue a laboratory study of permeability enhancement by dynamic stressing. Recent work shows that seismic waves can effect changes in permeability of the Earth’s crust, and we are currently recreating the effect in the lab under controlled conditions.

We seek a postdoctoral fellow to lead this effort in the Rock Mechanics Lab at Penn State. The project will also include collaboration with the observational team at UC Santa Cruz.

Experience in experimental design and execution is required. Expertise in earthquake physics, hydrogeology, seismology, geomechanics and/or computational modeling would be helpful. Two years of funding are available.

Please send a CV, publication list and a cover letter to Chris Marone (marone@psu.edu), Derek Elsworth (elsworth@psu.edu) and Emily Brodsky (brodsky@es.ucsc.edu) by Nov. 1, 2011. The position is available now and we prefer candidates who can start soon.
