Research Fellow position in Physics-Based Earthquake Rupture Modelling

Date: 05/16/2024

Dear SCEC Community,

See the following announcement:


On behalf of Luca Dal Zilio, Earth Observatory of Singapore

Research Fellow position in Physics-Based Earthquake Rupture Modelling

The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) is seeking a Research Fellow to join our project on physics-based earthquake rupture modelling. The selected candidate will be part of the "Integrating Volcano and Earthquake Science and Technology (InVEST) in Southeast Asia" project. This 5-year project aims to improve our understanding of earthquakes and their cascading hazards and impacts in Southeast Asia. This position focuses on the modelling complex nature of fault ruptures, which involve multiple fault sections and solid-fluid interactions, phenomena highlighted by recent seismic events.

The appointed candidate will develop and apply 3D dynamic earthquake rupture scenarios that incorporate nonlinear frictional failure and seismic wave propagation across complex fault systems. Utilizing supercomputing resources, this work will create models predicting ground motions and surface fault displacements. The role demands close collaboration with an international team of geologists, seismologists, geodesists, and hazard modellers to integrate these models into comprehensive seismic hazard assessments. The position is initially funded for 2 years, with the possibility of extension.

Questions regarding the position (no applications) should be directed to Luca Dal Zilio (luca.dalzilio@ntu.edu.sg).
