Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

Please SAVE THE DATE for the GAGE/SAGE 2023 Community Science Workshop!
Theme: Evolving nature of seismology and geodesy: Earth and beyond

Monday March 27 - Wednesday March 29, 2023
Pasadena Convention Center
Pasadena, CA

  • Optional short courses will be held Sunday March 26
  • Student travel stipend application will open in early January 2023
  • Registration will open January 24, 2023

GAGE (Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience) and SAGE (Seismological Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience) are NSF facilities run by non-profit consortia of university members run by UNAVCO and IRIS, respectively. This meeting is the equivalent of the UNAVCO and IRIS Science Workshops, which used to be held separately but have been joint since 2019.

Please contact Beth Pratt-Sitaula for questions (prattsitaula@unavco.org)

Tenure-track Faculty Position in Geodesy and Remote Sensing, University of Colorado Boulder

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), an interdisciplinary research institute within the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), invites applications for a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level specializing in the areas of geodesy and remote sensing of the Earth.  Associate Professor rank may be considered based on experience and qualifications. The position is rostered in CIRES, with tenure and teaching responsibilities in a relevant academic department including, but not limited to, Geological Sciences, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Physics, or Geography.

We are seeking a multidisciplinary Earth scientist who uses advanced geodetic and remote sensing techniques to study surface and subsurface processes of the Earth. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have research interests in one or more areas related to change detection of the earth’s surface and environmental processes. Techniques and data might include terrestrial, airborne, or satellite LiDAR, radar altimetry, GNSS, gravity, optically sensed image coregistration, InSAR, or other methods. Candidates whose expertise complements that of existing CIRES faculty and researchers in cryospheric processes, natural hazards, tectonics, geomorphology, or hydrology are particularly encouraged. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active, externally funded research program, supervise graduate students, and teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

The position will remain open until filled, though for full consideration, please apply no later than December 11, 2022. Desired starting date for the position is August 2023.
