A postdoctoral fellow position is available at the UC Berkeley
Seismological Laboratory to join the earthquake early warning group.

Earthquake early warning is the rapid detection of earthquakes underway,
estimation of the ground shaking hazard they pose, and warning of people in
harm’s way.  The successful applicants will work with other researchers and
students at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory on projects related to
early warning.  The specific areas of research are flexible and will depend
on the skills and interests of the successful applicants.  Topics of
interest include finite fault algorithms with geodetic data, development of
methods for improved ground shaking estimation, development of new seismic-
and geodetic-based methods for rapid earthquake characterization, use of
new types of geophysical networks, and development of delivery tools to
provide warnings, and engagement of warning users.

The position is available to start immediately, or when the successful
applicants are available. The initial appointment would be for one year.
Reappointment for a second and possibly third year is typical but dependent
on satisfactory progress.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received and continue until the
positions are filled. Applicants should send a letter detailing their
research interests and its relevance to earthquake early warning, and a CV
to Diego Melgar (dmelgar at berkeley.edu) and Richard Allen (
rallen at berkeley.edu).  Questions about the position should be sent to the
same email addresses.
