Postdoctoral Positions in Seismology, Geodesy and Geodynamics Studies of 
the Yellowstone Hotspot at the University of Utah.

The University of Utah invites applications for two Postdoctoral Fellows 
in seismology, geodesy (GPS, InSAR, etc.), and dynamics of the 
Yellowstone magmatic-tectonic system and its larger scale hotspot. We 
are especially interested in scientists to conduct research on such 
topics as volcano-seismology, earthquake source properties, 
interpretation of GPS and strainmeter data, geodynamics of crust and 
mantle magma systems, integration of seismic and geodetic data, etc. A 
rich source of data is available from the University of Utah Yellowstone 
seismic and GPS networks as well EarthScope GPS and borehole strainmeter 
arrays focused on the magmatic and tectonic processes of the Yellowstone 
hotspot (see www.uusatrg.utah.edu and www.seis.utah.edu). Interaction 
with students and faculty and with the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory 
is expected. The associates will be expected to participate in 
earthquake and volcano response and interpretation needs. Computing 
experience with the Linux/Unix operating system is very useful. The 
expected starting salary is competitive, depending on qualifications and 
experience. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Geophysics or closely 
related field. Appointment will be for one-year beginning fall 
2008/winter 2009 or negotiable, with continuation contingent upon 
performance and on funding. Applicants should email Robert B. Smith, 
(robert.b.smith at utah.edu): 1) a letter of application including a 
statement of how the applicant is qualified to participate in the above 
research and specific research interests, 2) a curriculum vitae, and 3) 
names and email addresses of three persons who can provide 
recommendations for the candidate. Applications will be accepted until 
the position is filled. The University of Utah is an equal opportunity
