Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ambient Noise Seismology, Victoria University of Wellington

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 18 months commencing on 15 January 2010 and funded by a grant from the Marsden Fund.

The objectives of this study are to determine seismic wave speeds throughout New Zealand using cross-correlated seismic noise; 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 postdoctoral fellow will be responsible primarily for work on the second of these objectives, and work closely with colleagues at VUW and GNS Science.

The appointee will have experience in one or more of the following: signal processing; acoustics; seismic beamforming; ambient noise analysis; earthquake seismology.  Applicants must have completed a PhD or expect to do so by 1 January 2010.  Selection of the successful applicant will commence on 30 November 2009.
