University of Utah Post Doc Res Assoc w/Ret in SALT LAKE CITY, Utah

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS, web quake.utah.edu) invites applications for a one-year appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Earthquake Seismology. The successful applicant will work with UUSS faculty, staff, and students on problems related to earthquake detection, location, and characterization in the Intermountain West, including the Wasatch fault zone and the Yellowstone volcanic region. UUSS has active projects related to enhanced geothermal development, mining-induced seismicity, discrimination of explosions from earthquakes, and machine learning-based methods applied to generating seismic catalogs. While primary datasets are available from the regional seismic networks operated by UUSS, supplemental data can be generated using the University of Utah pool of 200 three-component, short-period (5 Hz) Nodal seismometers. The position has the possibility of extension for additional years pending acceptable progress and availability of funding. Opportunities for teaching, mentoring, and outreach will be made available for those interested in pursuing an academic track. Reasonable expenses related to relocation will be reimbursed and approximately $5,000 per year is available for non-personnel expenses such as travel and professional development.
