Dear All,

I am recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join the University of Milan-Bicocca for a two-year term starting on February 1, 2024. The application window is open until December 21, with interviews for shortlisted candidates scheduled on January 10. Further details about the application process and the link to apply can be found at the following link

The position is part of the national PRIN project “RISING: The role of continental lithosphere in subduction zones: sinking or floating?” and involves collaboration with the University of Bologna (Francesco Giuntoli) and Pietro Sternai (Milan-Bicocca). The successful candidate will focus on the passive-seismic dataset from Oman and the United Arab Emirates, encompassing approximately 110 broadband sensors. Funds for conference attendance are available. The gross salary is €21,800 per year, tax-exempt.

The researcher will play a key role in analysing and interpreting the passive-seismic dataset, collaborating with a multidisciplinary team, mentoring students, and actively contributing to conferences and publications.

For more information, please contact me at or Alternatively, I will be available at the AGU conference next week for those interested in learning more about the position.

Feel free to share this opportunity with individuals who might be interested in contributing to groundbreaking research in observational seismology. I look forward to welcoming a dedicated researcher to our team!

All the best,
Simone Pilia.
