GPS/InSAR Integration in Western North America
The Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography has an opening for a postdoctoral scholar. The candidate will work on a project to integrate decades of GNSS and InSAR data over the Western North America plate boundaries and produce displacement and strain rate fields. The objective is to increase the overall geodetic precision, compare the observations to existing fault slip models and to create a refined model. Overall, the objective is to improve our understanding of the underlying physics of crustal deformation and the earthquake cycle.
Candidates should have demonstrated experience in modeling crustal deformation with the potential for independent, creative research. Proficiency in high-level computer programming and visualization is an advantage.
Candidates are required to have completed the PhD degree prior to taking up the appointment.
The position is now open for a one-year period, with an option for an additional one-year, dependent on funding and performance. It includes a minimum stipend of $52,896 plus benefits (higher for applicants with postdoc experience). Appointees are eligible for health insurance through UC San Diego.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Please e-mail a CV, two references and a letter of research interests to ybock at <mailto:ybock at> and dsandwell at <mailto:dsandwell at>
