Job description

We have a postdoc opportunity at the University of Oxford to work on the mechanics of slow earthquakes, mostly from a modelling perspective, with about 9 months of funding from a NERC project. We’ve gotten some interesting seismic and geodetic observations as part of this project, and the goal of this postdoc will be largely to analyse some of the observations and to see how and if some models of slow earthquakes can match these and other data.

The postdoc will join a group with researchers working on tremor, creep events, and earthquakes generally and will be part of an Earth Sciences department with researchers with broad expertise in seismology and geophysics.


How to apply

For more information, please see the link below, and please get in touch with Jessica Hawthorne at jessica.hawthorne@earth.ox.ac.uk if you’re thinking of applying. The application deadline is the 24th of August at 12pm.
