Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Fellow, Institute of Geophysics, Victoria University of Wellington.  This is a fixed-term position of up to three years funded by a grant from the Marsden Fund commencing on 1 April 2008. 
Seismic noise recorded by broadband seismograph networks provides a means of imaging the crust and upper mantle.  The objectives of this study are to determine seismic wave speeds throughout New Zealand using permanent and temporary deployment data; quantify spatiotemporal variations in the seismic noise field in conjunction with oceanic wave state data; and obtain anisotropic shear wave speed models of the New Zealand plate boundary.  

The appointee will have experience in one or more of the following: signal processing; seismic tomography; ambient noise correlation; earthquake seismology.  

Applicants must have completed a PhD or expect to do so by 1 June 2008.  Selection of the successful applicant will commence on 1 March 2008.
