The Earthquake Hazards Program at the USGS offices in Golden, CO, are
seeking several new postdoctoral researchers through the 2015 USGS
Mendenhall program (http://geology.usgs.gov/postdoc/). These include:

(1) *Integrating Earthquake Ground Failure into Real-time Hazard and Loss
Assessment.* The focus of this opportunity is on research that will
ultimately provide a more complete characterization of two
earthquake-related hazards—landslides and liquefaction—in the immediate
hours following a significant domestic or global earthquake. (*Lead
researcher David Wald, wald at usgs.gov <wald at usgs.gov>*).

(2) *Improving Earthquake Location Procedures Using Calibration Events and
Signal Processing: Significantly Advancing our Understanding of Earthquake
Sequences and Seismotectonics*. The focus this opportunity is science that
will ultimately provide a more accurate and consistent approach to
earthquake location both for real-time operations at the USGS/NEIC, and for
more research-based analyses of earthquake sequences and seismotectonic
characterization. (*Lead researcher Harley Benz, benz at usgs.gov
<benz at usgs.gov>*).

(3) *The Integration of Geodetic Datasets into Rapid and Long Term
Observations of Earthquake Properties.* The focus this opportunity is
science that will ultimately provide a more rapid and complete
characterization of earthquake properties (i.e., location, magnitude,
source characteristics) in the minutes to hours following major domestic
and global events, and will concurrently improve our longer term
understanding of earthquake cycles and domestic and global fault
systems. (*Lead
researcher Gavin Hayes, ghayes at usgs.gov <ghayes at usgs.gov>*).


Further details on these, and on 44 other USGS Mendenhall Postdoc
opportunities, can be found at

deadline is February 17, 2015.
