QuakeCoRE Postdoctoral Fellow in Ground Motion Simulation

Date: 04/09/2018

On Behalf of Brendon A. Bradley, University of Canterbury / QuakeCoRE:

Postdoctoral Fellow in Ground Motion Simulation
(on behalf of Brendon Bradley, University of Canterbury)

We seek a postdoctoral Fellow to undertake research in broadband ground motion modelling, its validation using historical earthquakes (including the 2010-2011 Canterbury and 2016 Kaikoura earthquakes), and application to likely ground motion characteristics of future major earthquakes in New Zealand through the application of validated broadband ground motion simulation methods via scenario ruptures and simulation-based probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. The research is in relation to the project entitled: “Earthquake-induced ground motion prediction: Accelerating the transition from empirical relations to physics-based simulations methods”.
This research will be completed in through QuakeCoRE: The New Zealand Centre for Earthquake Resilience via the flagship project: Ground Motion Simulation and Validation – involving 30+ researchers and practitioners from multiple institutions and disciplines. This wiki page provides further information of research directions.
Applications due: 31 May 2018
Apply: Job ID 5934, https://ucvacancies.canterbury.ac.nz

Want to send an announcement to the SCEC community?
SCEC community announcement requests should be sent to scecinfo@usc.edu (no attachments) with the following requirements, in order to best standardize announcements and provide maximum security for recipients. These requirements also ensure that various email applications and any applied filters reach the recipient as the announcement was intended.

1) Use this style guide :
All text must be in Helvetica, 12 pt.
Bold, italics, and underline formatting is permitted.
Consider the length of web links; use bit.ly or tinyurl.com to shorten them as needed.
NO PDFs, Word Docs, images, or other attachments - all content must be in the email request itself.
2) Include a subject line.

3) Remember, send your request to scecinfo@usc.edu.

We strive to send announcements as soon as possible. In general, expect a 2-3 business day turn-around. We may also combine announcements with others, delay sending certain announcements due to current events, and even reject requests if they do not fit the needs of the SCEC community.
