Greetings and salutations,

We would like to announce a post-doctoral opportunity in the exciting field
of quantifying the uncertainties in crustal deformation models (with
emphasis on improving understanding of earthquake hazards).  A wide variety
of research projects could be proposed as part of this opportunity.  These
include, but are not limited to, studying any part of the seismic cycle
(co-seismic, post-seismic, and inter-seismic), and using any of a variety
of modeling methods (discretized faults, block models, etc.) in any
rheology (elastic, viscoelastic, etc.).  The envisioned outcomes of this
project include both methodological advances for quantifying uncertainties
and improved understanding of uncertainties associated with specific
models.  This work has the potential to make substantive contributions to
the next generation of USGS products including the Uniform California
Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF) and the U.S. National Seismic Hazard
Map.

Please see the website for more information:

Other Mendenhall Post-doc Opportunities: http://geology.usgs.gov/postdoc/

The deadline to apply is May 2, 2016, with a proposed duty station of Menlo
Park, CA.

Questions, comments, and puns may be sent to Sarah Minson (sminson at usgs.gov
).

Thank you for your consideration of this post-doctoral opportunity,

Sarah Minson, Jessica Murray, Fred Pollitz, Wayne Thatcher, and Yuehua Zeng
