The University of Utah invites applications for a postdoctoral associate in
seismology and/or geodetic imaging and related dynamics of the Yellowstone
hotspot and its active magmatic-tectonic system.  We are interested in a
scientist to conduct research on such topics as earthquake source
properties, integration of EarthScope GPS and strainmeter data with
earthquakes and volcanic manifestations, volcano-fault stress interactions,
deformation modeling, geodynamics, etc.  A rich source of data is available
from the University of Utah Yellowstone seismic network as well data from
the EarthScope PBO GPS and borehole strainmeter arrays and the USArray
seismic network (see www.uusatrg.utah.edu, www.seis.utah.edu and
http://www.earthscope.org).  Interaction with students, faculty and with the
Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (a partnership of the Univ. of Utah, the
USGS, and Yellowstone National Park) as well as participation in earthquake
response and interpretation needs is expected.  Computing experience with
the Linux/Unix operating system is required.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geophysics or closely related field.
Appointment will be for one-year beginning summer 2008 or negotiable, with
continuation contingent upon performance and funding.  Applicants should
