Hi UNAVCO colleagues,

I'm forwarding a postdoc advertisement for a colleague in the Geophysics Department here at Mines, Eileen Martin. It's a fairly flexible position with opportunities across permafrost, glacier, and geotechnical topics. See the description below. Email me or Eileen (eileenrmartin at mines.edu) if you have questions.


Institution: Colorado School of Mines
Open Until: 2021-08-30

The Colorado School of Mines Department of Geophysics invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in computational environmental and engineering geophysics.

The successful candidate’s responsibilities will consist of designing new theoretical and computational methods to integrate seismic, temperature, InSAR, and geotechnical cone penetration data for environmental and engineering geophysics applications. Job responsibilities will include writing peer-reviewed journal articles and release of open-source software. The candidate is expected to work independently and collaboratively on projects requiring initiative, creativity, strong organizational skills, communication skills, ability to follow project deadlines, and ability to supportively collaborate with student researchers. All candidates applying for this position should be motivated to work in an interdisciplinary framework.

The position will be located in the Department of Geophysics at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. We at Mines recognize that diversity is a crucial component to excellence in education and research, and strive to cultivate a community in which students, faculty, and staff with differing backgrounds, perspectives, talents, and needs are supported. We believe that a diverse community fosters energizing and enlightening debates, leads to deeper commitments, and results in a host of educational, research, and service outcomes both within our institution and for the scientific community at-large.

The successful candidate will be offered a 18 month full-time post-doc position, with possible extension. The position involves a competitive salary package with associated benefits. The start date is negotiable, beginning as soon as January 1, 2022.

Mines is offering a salary of $55,000 - $60,000.

Mines takes into consideration a combination of candidate’s education, training and experience as well as the position’s scope and complexity, the discretion and latitude required in the role, work location, and external market and internal value when determining a salary level for potential new employees.

Minimum Qualifications:
We seek an individual holding a PhD in applied math, geophysics, physics, computer science, statistics or a related discipline.
The candidate should have background in most of the following areas: linear algebra, foundational probability and statistics, inverse problems, numerical partial differential equations, numerical optimization, and signal processing.

Preferred Qualification:
Strong programming skills are expected, and experience with algorithm design for high performance computing, cloud computing or edge computing.

For full consideration, please submit your application by August 30, 2021. Application review will begin on August 31, 2021, and the position will remain open until filled. Please send any questions to Dr. Eileen Martin (eileenrmartin at mines.edu<https://mailto:eileenrmartin@mines.edu>).
