Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Active Tectonics

Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford

The department seeks to appoint a PDRA to work under the direction of Dr 
Richard Walker and Professor Barry Parsons (University of Oxford), and 
Professor James Jackson (University of Cambridge) on a project funded by 
the National Environment Research Council. The post, based at the 
Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, aims to use 
high-resolution imagery and elevation models, combined with fieldwork, 
to map unknown faults in the interior of Asia.

The researcher will be responsible for the mapping and analysis of 
fault-based geomorphology using high-resolution satellite imagery and 
digital topography, supplemented with fieldwork in selected regions. The 
production of high-resolution digital topographic datasets through 
field-based, aerial, or satellite methods, forms an important component 
of the duties. He/She will also be expected to develop skills in 
measuring surface displacements through the matching of optical 
satellite imagery, and to support both tectonic and volcanic 
applications of high-resolution imagery and elevation data throughout 
COMET (http://comet.nerc.ac.uk/).

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 16 May 2014. 
Interviews will be taking place on Friday 30 May 2014.
