Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Active Tectonics at Oxford

Date: 04/29/2014

Forwarded announcement from Ed Nissen, Colorado School of Mines:

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Active Tectonics, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford

The department seeks to appoint a PDRA to work under the direction of Dr Richard Walker and Professor Barry Parsons (University of Oxford), and Professor James Jackson (University of Cambridge) on a project funded by the National Environment Research Council. The post, based at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, aims to use high-resolution imagery and elevation models, combined with fieldwork, to map unknown faults in the interior of Asia.

The researcher will be responsible for the mapping and analysis of fault-based geomorphology using high-resolution satellite imagery and digital topography, supplemented with fieldwork in selected regions. The production of high-resolution digital topographic datasets through field-based, aerial, or satellite methods, forms an important component of the duties. He/She will also be expected to develop skills in measuring surface displacements through the matching of optical satellite imagery, and to support both tectonic and volcanic applications of high-resolution imagery and elevation data throughout COMET (http://comet.nerc.ac.uk/).
