Dear Colleagues, please feel free to forward along the below information to
interested parties.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) at the University of
Washington (UW) is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate (job class
code 0148) to address tsunami early warning.

The individual will join a NASA-funded interdisciplinary team that is
working on adding GNSS-based algorithms into operational tsunami early
warning systems. The researcher will spend at least 50% of their time on
early warning activities; the remaining time can be used to explore new
collaborations with UW researchers. We are particularly looking for
individuals who are familiar with real-time seismology, GNSS geodesy,
earthquake source modeling, crustal deformation, or tsunami modeling.
Additional relevant skillsets and expertise include, but are not limited
to, real-time high-rate GNSS, strong-motion seismology, rupture mechanics,
waveform modeling, tsunamigenic earthquakes, visualization, and scientific
programming. The position will be affiliated with the Pacific Northwest
Seismic Network (pnsn.org) and the department of Earth and Space Sciences (
www.ess.washington.edu). A Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in geophysics or
related field is required at the time of appointment. While the successful
candidate will primarily be engaged in research, all University of
Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. The University
of Washington and PNSN promote diversity and inclusivity among our faculty
and staff, and seek candidates who are able to fully engage audiences from
a wide spectrum of backgrounds.

This is a 12-month, full-time (100% FTE) appointment, renewable for a
second year, subject to approval, satisfactory performance, and
availability of funding. The position offers salary commensurate with
experience and excellent benefits. The start date of the position is
flexible; summer to fall 2019 is preferred. Applications will be reviewed
starting May 15, 2019.

The University of Washington is located in the greater Seattle metropolitan
area, with a dynamic, multicultural community of 3.7 million people and a
range of ecosystems from mountains to ocean. The UW serves a diverse
population of 80,000 students, faculty and staff, including 25%
first-generation college students, over 25% Pell Grant students, and
faculty from over 70 countries. The UW is a recipient of a National Science
Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the
advancement of women faculty in science, engineering, and math (see
