Research Position in EEW at Caltech Seismo Lab

Date: 07/30/2014

The Caltech Seismo Lab seeks a research scientist to carry out earthquake early warning (EEW) algorithm research, and participate in continued development of the demonstration EEW earthquake monitoring system. We seek applicants who like to work in a team and to apply their seismological research and computer programming skills to develop and implement new technologies for innovative real-time earthquake data processing. This is a temporary full-time position that is eligible for full staff benefits.
You will carry out independent research to develop and improve seismic EEW algorithms, using regional seismic waveforms and parametric data and participate in deployment of both single station and finite source EEW algorithms and evaluate EEW performance to optimize system performance and improve algorithms. Additionally you will participate in writing reports, proposals, and publications and give oral reports as needed to meet project goals.

The successful candidate will have MS degree or PhD and 5 or more years of related work experience. You must have experience in analyzing seismic waveforms, computer skills such as experience in high-level programming (C, C++, or Java), and be fluent in LINUX, command-line scripting and have some experience with web-applications. Requires ability to develop and implement EEW algorithms using tools such as Matlab.
