Since 1900, 35 earthquakes worldwide have killed more than 10,000 people. Many of these occurred on continental faults that had not been identified or whose hazard had been underestimated. You will develop a research profile in Active Tectonics and Earthquake Hazard that will contribute to the University's ambition to excel at REF2020, with a sustained record of internationally excellent (and some world-leading) publications and a strong record of presentations at international conferences.
You will build collaborations within the tectonics research group in the School of Earth and Environment, and more widely across the University and beyond. You will co-supervise PhD students and play a key role in teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate geoscience teaching programs within the School of Earth and Environment. You will be expected to develop and submit grant applications to a variety of funding agencies to support your research. These might be in the form of personal fellowships (e.g. NERC, Leverhulme, ERC) or larger collaborative research grants.
The successful candidates will have significant proven research experience within the field of Active Tectonics, the ability to teach at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level, as well as a clear and compelling vision for personal academic development.
