Our apologies for duplicate postings of this announcement.
We would like to let you know about an exciting USGS Mendenhall
Postdoctoral Opportunity that may be of interest to students or postdocs.
The USGS, in collaboration with the University of Alabama, is seeking
applicants to conduct postdoctoral research on the magma plumbing system
of Kilauea volcano, which is currently experiencing an unprecedented
eruptive episode involving vents at both its summit and east rift zone.
The goal of the project is the development and implementation of
conceptually and physically realistic models of Kilauea's shallow magmatic
system that build on existing knowledge of the volcano and that
quantitatively predict the spatial and temporal patterns of recently
observed volcanic activity, seismicity, and deformation. We seek a
researcher who will develop innovative models that take advantage of the
vast archive of geophysical and geological data at Kilauea, and who will
employ new cutting-edge data streams, for example, PS InSAR, high-rate
GPS, gravity, or array seismology.
The Mendenhall program is an exceptional opportunity to conduct research
with the USGS and includes full salary and project funding for two years
(with a possible extension for two additional years). If you are
interested in more information about this project, please don?t hesitate
to contact any one of the project supervisors (listed below), and visit
both the Mendenhall Program website (http://geology.usgs.gov/postdoc/) as
well as the website for this specific research opportunity
The application deadline for this opportunity is November 12, 2008. The
successful applicant will be expected to have completed their PhD and
start work at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory in late 2009 or early 2010.
