*USGS Mendenhall Research Fellowship Program*
Opportunity S30: Experimental studies of aseismic slip, earthquake
occurrence and hazard

The U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Science Center in Menlo Park,
California is seeking a postdoctoral scholar for a lab-based research
position focused on processes controlling aseismic slip, earthquake
occurrence and earthquake hazard. We seek a candidate who can make
fundamental contributions in rock physics and fault mechanics with a focus
on the conditions leading to seismic versus aseismic faulting as well as
the spatial and temporal interaction of fault slip modes to advance our
understanding of earthquake occurrence and earthquake hazard. Experimental
research is expected to be conducted in the Rock Physics Laboratory of the
Earthquake Science Center of the USGS (lab info at
https://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/eqproc/rockphysics/).  Strong
candidates are expected to possess demonstrated abilities in developing
fundamental theory as well as numerical modeling of experimental results
and applications to natural systems. Applicants are strongly encouraged to
contact potential advisors early in the process of developing their
research proposals.

Application Deadline: October 22, 2018

Research advisors: Nick Beeler nbeeler at usgs.gov; Diane Moore dmoore at usgs.gov;
and David Lockner dlockner at usgs.gov
