Postdoctoral Research Associate position at U. Texas, Arlington


A postdoctoral research associate position in the Department of Earth and
Environmental Sciences (EES) at the University of Texas at Arlington is
available starting January 2012.  Funding for this position is provided in
part by NSF and NASA, through the ongoing CALIPSO project on the actively
erupting Soufriere Hills volcano on Montserrat, West Indies
(http://www.uta.edu/faculty/mattioli/research/CALIPSO/Intro.html). The
initial appointment will be for one year and may be renewed for at least an
additional year, with a satisfactory annual review.  


The CALIPSO project focuses on using data from the CALIPSO Facility
(borehole strain, seismometers, and surface cGPS) to develop models for the
evolution and dynamics of the active SHV magmatic system over a range of
temporal and spatial scales.  The successful candidate should have a
demonstrated background in one or more of the following areas: 1) inversion
of surface deformation data; 2) FEM modeling of dynamic magmatic systems or
volcano edifice instability; 3) analysis of borehole strain and/or seismic
data; or 4) analysis of high-rate GPS data.


A Ph.D. in Earth Sciences or a related field is required and demonstrated
computer and modeling skills are a must. Some familiarity with operation of
remote geophysical data acquisition systems is desirable. Ability to work as
part of a team, which includes graduate students and other CALIPSO PIs is
essential.  Completed applications consist of: a curriculum vitae; statement
of research experience and goals; and names and contact information of at
least four individuals who would be willing to provide letters of


Applications should be submitted by December 1, 2011, but will continue to
be reviewed until the position is filled. If possible, interviews will be
conducted at Fall AGU, or by phone. Applications in Adobe PDF format should
