Postdoctoral Position in Modeling of earthquake, volcano and
lithospheric processes in Africa_
available in the Earth System Physics Section of the International
Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). ICTP operates under a
tripartite agreement between the Government of Italy and two UN
agencies, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural
Organization (UNESCO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA). The Centre is located along the coast of the Adriatic Sea, in
northeast Italy, about 10 kilometers from the city of Trieste. The
working language is English.
We seek a motivated person with experience in modeling of active
tectonic and/or magmatic deformation processes. The position involves
integrating seismology and time variable surface observations from GPS
and InSAR into fault, volcano and lithospheric models for transient
deformation and stress interactions. Candidates should have a recent
Ph.D. in geophysics or engineering with a strong background in
numerical continuum mechanics modeling. Experience in mechanics of
earthquakes and/or volcanoes and/or lithospheric deformation modeling
is highly desirable.
Dr. Abdelkrim Aoudia (aoudia at ictp.it), Research Scientist, in ICTP's
Earth System Physics Section will serve as ICTP postdoctoral advisor
to the selected candidate.
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to ICTP’s stated
mission to support scientific activities in developing countries, both
through direct collaboration with African scientific centers, and by
active involvement in the planning and execution of workshops and
training activities to take place in Africa during 2010 and 2011. The
candidate will be expected to participate in earthquake and volcano
scientific response actions in Africa if needed.
The salary scale for the position ranges from 2000 to 2500 Euros per
month, depending on experience, and is exempt from income tax in
Italy. The position is offered for an initial period of one year,
renewable for up to an additional two years, and is to start as soon
as possible in 2009.
If you wish to apply, please send to espvacan at ictp.it: 1)- a letter of
application including a statement of how you are qualified to
participate in the above research and your specific research
interests, 2)- a complete curriculum vitae with a list of
publications, and 3)- a list of three references (with telephone
numbers and postal and e-mail addresses).
Closing date: Initially 1st March 2009; applications after this date
will be accepted if the post remains unfilled.
