The California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Postdoctoral Scholars  
Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) invites applications for  
a postdoctoral research position in JPL’s Solid Earth Research Group.
	We seek a motivated person with experience in 3D viscoelastic finite  
element modeling of earthquake and tectonic deformation processes. The  
position involves integrating time variable surface deformation  
observations from GPS and InSAR into fault and lithospheric models for  
earthquake/transient slip and stress interactions. The position  
involves working with a team of JPL scientists and engineers as part of  
a larger project.
  Dr.  Paul Lundgren, Research Scientist, in JPL’s Earth Sciences  
Section will serve as JPL postdoctoral advisor to the selected  
candidate.  The appointee will be guided by the JPL advisor to ensure  
that the research work will result in publications in the open  
	Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in geophysics, applied physics  
or engineering with a strong background in numerical continuum  
mechanics modeling. Experience in earthquake mechanics and/or  
lithospheric deformation modeling is highly desirable. The appointment  
is contingent upon evidence of completion of a Ph.D.
	The annual starting salary for a recent Ph.D. is US$52,000 and can  
vary somewhat according to the applicant’s qualifications.
	Postdoctoral scholars positions are awarded for a one-year period.  
Appointments may be renewed in one-year increments for a maximum  
addition of two years. The appointments are expected to begin in spring  
of 2007.
	Please send a letter describing your research interests, a curriculum  
vitae, and a list of three references (with telephone numbers and  
postal and e-mail addresses) to Dr. Paul Lundgren, Jet Propulsion  
Laboratory, MS 300-233 , 4800 Oak Grove Dr., Pasadena, CA 91109-8099  
USA; Tel: +1-818-354-1795  or E-mail: paul.lundgren at jpl.nasa.gov
	Applications will be reviewed starting in January 2007.
	Caltech and JPL are equal opportunity/affirmative action employers.  
Women, minorities, veterans, and disabled persons are encouraged to
