Postdoctoral Research Associate in Geophysics
Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon
Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS)
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research scientist to join the ERC project CRUSLID based at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France. The project CRUSLID, which starts on October 1st 2021, aims at determining the present-day nature and structure of the crusts and the physical and geological processes leading to crust formation and evolution on stagnant-lid planets.
On terrestrial bodies that do not show plate tectonics, lithosphere cooling is a major source of stress. Lithosphere cooling depends on the distribution in heat sources vertically, in between the mantle and crust, as well as laterally, in between the different geological provinces. The aim of the post-doc is to investigate the link between observed seismicity and the build-up of stress by lithosphere cooling both theoretically and through seismic data analysis.
The position is available for a year, with possible renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance. The position is based at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, in the Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon, Terre, Planètes, Environnement, Lyon, France.
Applicants should hold a PhD degree preferably in geophysics; strong expertise in elasticity and/or seismotectonics is required. He/she should have a solid background in continuum mechanics and should have demonstrable scientific initiative.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, research statement, graduate transcript and contact information for three references to Chloé Michaut (email@example.com). The position is open until filled, with preference given to applications received by 15/11/2021.
Please mention in your application the website or mailing list where you found the offer and the reference Postdoc1-CRUSLID.
