Fulltime Researcher Position at UC Berkeley Seismological Laboratory

Date: 03/05/2012

Job announcement sent from Richard Allen, UC Berkeley:

The Berkeley Seismological Laboratory is searching for a fulltime researcher to join the earthquake early warning group lead by Prof. Richard Allen. The successful candidate will be an experienced researcher with expertise in one or more of the following areas: the physics of earthquakes; the analysis of seismic and/or geodetic data streams; earthquake source modeling/imaging techniques. A PhD in geophysics is required, and several years of postdoctoral experience is preferable. It is anticipated that the hire will be at the Assistant Researcher level.

This is a career position funded by research grants. Funding is in place for the first three years, but it is anticipated that funding will be available beyond that time. The primary focus of the position is fundamental research into earthquake source processes. However, the researcher will be expected to participate in proposal writing activities, in the management of the overall earthquake early warning project, and in outreach to potential users of earthquake early warning and other earthquake information products.

Applicants should submit a full CV and a cover letter detailing their research interests, their research plans, and how they fit into the broader goals of developing robust earthquake early warning systems. The letter should also include possible start dates and any other pertinent details. The application materials should be emailed to applications@seismo.berkeley.edu. Deadline for submitting applications is March 28, 2012. The position is available immediately. If there are questions about the position or the application process please send them to rallen@berkeley.edu.
