Dear Colleagues,

The Swiss Seismological Service at ETH Zurich is opening a researcher position (3 years + possible  extension) to be filled ASAP.

The successful candidate will develop real-time detection and analysis methods for high-rate injection induced seismic sequences and help develop the prototype of an "Adaptive Traffic Light System" for hydraulic stimulation operations in the geothermal (EGS) context.
