The Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford seeks to appoint 
a Postdoctoral Researcher in Satellite Remote Sensing of the Earthquake 
Cycle. This post, based at the Department of Earth Sciences, University 
of Oxford, aims to use satellite radar interferometry applied to 
Sentinel-1 satellite radar data to image crustal strain accumulation, 
and to determine and interpret surface deformation associated with the 
earthquake cycle. The successful candidate  will work closely with 
researchers in the ‘Looking inside the Continents from Space’ (LiCS) 
project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, and with 
COMET, a world-leading centre for understanding tectonic and volcanic 
processes and hazards (http://comet.nerc.ac.uk/)

The researcher will be responsible for the processing and analysis of 
Sentinel-1 radar data to determine crustal strain accumulation over 
selected areas in the Alpine-Himalayan belt. They will also use the 
radar-derived deformation measurements in investigations of regional 
tectonics and in the modelling and interpretation of the earthquake 
cycle. In the event of a significant earthquake they will work with 
other LiCS/COMET scientists to combine these techniques with other 
observations to investigate the earthquake and its tectonic context.
