Postdoctoral Associate Position in Seismology/Dynamics of Yellowstone


The University of Utah Department of Geology and Geophysics has
reopened applications for a postdoctoral associate working in seismology
and dynamics of the Yellowstone hotspot and its magmatic-tectonic
system.  We are especially interested in candidates who can conduct
original research on such topics as integrated interpretation of seismic
and GPS data, crustal deformation and earthquake transients, earthquake
source properties, fault-volcano stress interaction, dynamics of
plume-plate interaction, tomography, etc.  The position requires
analysis of seismic data and fieldwork. Computing experience with the
Linux/Unix operating system is required.  Interaction with students and
faculty and with the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory is expected.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geophysics or closely related field.
The appointment will be for one-year starting fall 2006-winter 2007,
with continuation contingent upon performance and funding.  Applicants
should email Robert B. Smith, (r.smith at earth.utah.edu): 1) a letter of
application including a statement of research interests and how the
applicant is qualified to conduct research in one of the above or other
topics, 2) a curriculum vitae, and 3) names and email addresses of three
persons who can provide recommendations for the candidate.  
Applications will accepted until the position is filled.  The University
of Utah is an equal opportunity employer.
