Postdoctoral position in volcano geodesy/model-data assimilation

The Department of Marine Geosciences (MGS) at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) at the University of Miami, Florida, invites applications for a postdoctoral position using near-real time and/or low-latency geodetic data of active volcanoes. The objective of the project is to link geodynamical magma chamber evolution models with geodetic observations from GPS and InSAR into a model-data assimilation framework to assess the eruption potential of volcanoes exhibiting unrest. Objectives also include the assimilation of seismic data and of gas measurements, and the implementation of the finite element modeling approaches on scalable, high-performance computing platforms.  This project is part of a broader effort to develop an operational methodology for eruption prediction using current and future SAR missions with short revisiting times.

This is a 2-year joint project with the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, supported by NASA.  For an overview about our research activities please visit http://www.geodesy.miami.edu. Review of applications begins Oct 5 2014 and will continue until the position is filled. Anticipated appointment date is in the first half of 2015. For more information on the position please contact and/or send your application, to Dr. Falk Amelung (famelung at rsmas.miami.edu<mailto:famelung at rsmas.miami.edu>). Complete applications will consist of a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae and complete contact information for at least three references.
