This late-breaking session will include oral and poster presentations related to the 6 February M7.8 and M7.5 earthquake sequence affecting southern Turkey and Syria. Topics could include but are not limited to ground motion, social science, regional tectonics, seismological observations of the sequence, damage assessment and early warning evaluation. Collaborative research with local scientists is encouraged.

Conveners: Xyoli Pérez-Campos, Universidad Nacional Autónoma; Elizabeth Vanacore, University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez.

As a service to those researching, responding and speaking to the public about these earthquakes, SSA has created a short collection of papers from our journals (http://bit.ly/3K7CwGQ) related to the East Anatolian Fault and the Dead Sea Transform Fault System, in case these may be of use to you in your work. These papers are freely available until 21 February.

JST Sakura Science Program 2023: Summer Internship Program at ERI, UTokyo

Every year since 2014, we have offered an opportunity for ~ 10 international students to participate in our summer internship program supported by JST. As we’ll apply for JST’s support again this year, we’ll start receiving application from undergraduate/graduate students for our program.

We will select ~ 10 students by the selection committee of ERI.

The cost for transportation (international flights and local in Japan), accommodation, daily allowances will be supported by the program. The program is scheduled for three weeks from Saturday, August 19 to Friday, September 8, 2023, including lectures/training, collaboration with the supervisors and a field trip (destination TBD, see attached draft program plan). An undergraduate (or master course) student who is interested in entering the graduate school of the University of Tokyo is particularly welcome.

Application deadline is March 15, 2023. Applicants will be informed of selection result by the end of April. We recommend that an applicant contact a potential supervisor at ERI before sending the application documents, although it is not mandatory due to the short time to the deadline.

On behalf of Greg Beroza, Stanford

Assistant Professor Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability

Work type: University Tenure Line
Location: Stanford University
Categories: Doerr School of Sustainability

We seek applicants for a tenure track assistant professorship under Stanford’s “Taking the Pulse of the Planet” initiative, which is focused on the technology and data-science components of all areas of scholarship in the Doerr School of Sustainability. The initiative aims to build our capacity to map, measure, and monitor the various components of the Earth system through in situ and/or remote sensing. Sensing approaches can target terrestrial and/or marine systems, from beneath the surface of land or the ocean to the top of the atmosphere, using autonomous vehicles, airborne or satellite platforms. Sensing technologies should enable interrogation of Earth systems from chemical, geophysical, and/or biological perspectives. We seek a scholar with research expertise that supports these aims - through existing technology when appropriate, but with the possibility of developing new technologies as well.

Application packages should be submitted online at this link and include the following documents: (1) a cover letter, (2) a research statement and statement of teaching interests (up to 3 pages total for both), (3) a diversity statement that demonstrates the applicant’s commitment and potential to contribute to Stanford’s goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion through personal experience or perspective, scholarship, teaching, or service (1 page), (4) a curriculum vitae, and (5) names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2023.

The Doerr School of Sustainability values diversity, equity, and inclusion, including diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, culture, physical and learning differences, sexual orientation and identity, veteran status, and work and life experiences. Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment.

The expected base pay range for this position is $126,000 - $145,000 per annum.

Stanford University has provided a base pay range representing its good faith estimate of what the university reasonably expects to pay for the position. The pay offered to the selected candidate will be determined based on factors including (but not limited to) the experience and qualifications of the selected candidate including years since terminal degree, training, and field or discipline; departmental budget availability; internal equity; and external market pay for comparable jobs.

Advertised: 20 Jan 2023 Pacific Standard Time
Applications close: 01 Jun 2023 Pacific Daylight Time
