Dear Colleagues,
Please refer the advertised postdoc positions to relevant candidates.

Applications are now invited for two post-doctoral fellowship positions at the Department of Earth and Environment (E&E), Florida International University (FIU) in the fields of earthquake mechanics and hydro-geodesy or sea level-geodesy. Candidates should have a PhD degree or be in advance stages of their PhD studies. The successful applicants will join an active geodetic research group at FIU. Please find details below.
1) Post-doctoral Fellowship in Fault Mechanics and Earthquake triggering
The position is part of a NASA supported project titled “Cascading hazards: Understanding triggering relations between wet tropical cyclones, landslides, and earthquakes”. The appointee will investigate the impact of surface unloading on stress changes within the crust and their potential for triggering earthquakes. The research will include: (1) developing and testing mechanical models of faults and crustal deformation using finite element or other numerical modeling techniques, (2) using Coulomb failure stress calculations for evaluating fault failure conditions, and (3) applying the models and stress calculations to case studies in Taiwan. The appointee should be familiar with fault mechanics, crustal deformation processes, and numerical modeling. A PhD in tectonics, geodesy, or seismology is required.

2) Post-doctoral Fellowship in Geodetic imaging
The position is in the general field of geodetic imaging with a focus on natural and anthropogenic occurring land subsidence, but also open for other applications. The appointee will use InSAR observations to monitor land subsidence in urban and/or coastal environments and evaluate their impact on the nearby population and infrastructure. The appointee should have good programming experience in Matlab and/or Python. Prior experience in differential and time-series InSAR processing (e.g., ISCE, DORIS, GIAnT or StaMPS) is strongly recommended.  A PhD in geodesy, tectonics, remote sensing, or electrical engineering is required.

To apply, please send a letter describing research interests, a curriculum vita, and the names, addresses, and e-mail address of three potential references to Dr. Shimon Wdowinski, Department of Earth and Environment, Florida International University.
