Dear UNAVCO community,

A two-year NASA-funded postdoctoral position in machine learning, earthquake science, and hazards is available at the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oregon. We seek a motivated scientist with a background in geophysics, seismology, geodesy, or data science. Proficiency in scientific computing is desirable. The research is broadly aimed at developing techniques that leverage machine learning to increase the utility of GNSS data.  Potential applications of these methods include detection of small magnitude earthquakes, transients, and real-time characterization of earthquake and tsunami hazards.

The successful candidate will be jointly mentored by Profs. Diego Melgar<;!!C5qS4YX3!W0RlhggCSHnmwjxsDSQ66wtq3OddG75HRMvZikZtNHUfi8Yjx64T_Bsn6V1IUBKtPA$> and Amanda Thomas<>, have access to state-of-the-art high performance computing infrastructure, expertise and resources available through Oregon’s Data Science Initiative, and a lively group of researchers interested in geophysics and seismology (UO Geophysics webpage<>). The position is open immediately and review of applications will begin January 3rd and continue until the position is filled. The expected start date is in the summer of 2022.

Interested applicants should submit a CV that includes contact information for 2 references, and a two-page cover letter with research interests at this link<>. Questions can be directed to dmelgarm at<mailto:dmelgarm at> and amthomas at<mailto:athomas at>
