Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a post-doctoral opportunity through the
Mendenhall Research Fellowship Program of the U.S. Geological Survey.  The
focus of the postdoc is on volcano-tectonic interactions, and the position
is based in either Vancouver, Washington or Menlo Park, California.  The
postdoc will explore the interplay between tectonism and volcanic activity
in the western United States -- home to a range of tectonic environments
(including the San Andreas Fault, Cascadia Subduction Zone, and Basin and
Range), volcano types (stratovolcanoes, monogenetic volcanic fields, shield
volcanoes, and calderas), and compositions (basalt to rhyolite).  We seek
an early-career scientist with experience in geophysics (especially
deformation and/or seismology) and/or geology (especially structural
geology) and skills in modeling techniques that can be applied to better
understand the influences and feedback between volcanic and tectonic

Full details for the position are available at:

If you have questions, please contact Michael Poland (mpoland at usgs.gov) for
more information.  Application deadline via the web site above is May 2,

Many thanks,
