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 <span class="gmail-MsoHyperlink" style="color:blue;text-decoration-line:underline"><a href="https://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/eqproc/rockphysics/" style="color:blue">https://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/eqproc/rockphysics/</a></span>).  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.</span></p>
