Dear Colleagues,

The University of Bristol is currently advertising for two postdoctoral
research associates in the field of Volcano Geodesy with closing dates in
mid-February.

1.  *RiftVolc* *Postdoctoral Research Assistant/Associate
in Volcano Geodesy*

Applications are invited for a NERC-funded Postdoctoral Research Assistant,
for two to three years, based in the School of Earth Sciences at the
University of Bristol. The successful applicantwill engage in an exciting
new collaborative project aimed at understanding volcanism in rift
settings. The RiftVolc project involves researchers from 6 UK universities,
Addis Ababa University, the Geological Survey of Ethiopia and the British
Geological Survey and will focus on the past, present and future behavior
of thevolcanoes in the Main Ethiopian Rift. The PDRA will be responsible
for the geodetic component of the project, including fieldwork to run a
cGPS and dynamic gravity network. The work will be supervised by Dr. Juliet
Biggs, and will take place within the multi-disciplinary framework of the
RiftVolc project.

2. *COMET/Streva* *Postdoctoral Research Assistant/Associate
in Volcano InSAR*

Applications are invited for a NERC-funded Postdoctoral Research Assistant,
initially for two years, based in the School of Earth Sciences at the
University of Bristol. The successful candidate will join world-leading
teams to develop the application of satellite radar interferometry to
understanding time-dependent volcanic hazard, and the processes
contributing to volcanic unrest. The successful applicant will work within
the NERC Centre for the Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and
Tectonics (COMET) and with the NERC-ESRC funded STREVA project which aims
to develop and apply a practical and adaptable framework for volcanic risk
assessment. The PDRA will be work on the volcano InSAR components of this
project, including developing global approaches for Sentinel-1 data and
using high-resolution data for specific volcanic crises.
