The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) anticipates an opening at the leadership level in its Nuclear Explosion Monitoring research program in the next few months (US citizenship and ability to obtain a security clearance are required; position would be located at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico). AFRL is interested in scientists who would like to be involved in research program management, in particular managing the broad suite of seismic and acoustic research of utility for improving nuclear explosion monitoring. Examples of the seismological issues of interest to AFRL can be found in the research directions described in the recent Request for Information announcement (Section 3c at https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=92339a101969f8d0441dd4ac1c7e25b1&tab=core&_cview=1). A brief summary of the research focus is understanding regional and local seismology as they affect the generation and propagation of seismic signals from explosions and earthquakes, in particular where improvements in seismic event location and discrimination of explosions from earthquakes and other types of seismic events. Some topics that are pertinent include 3-D wave propagation modeling techniques, explosion and earthquake source physics, and geophysical structure models for seismic travel time, seismic attenuation and other effects of wave propagation that affect signal amplitudes and spectra. If you are interested in a position involved with managing such research, please contact Rick Schult (frederick.schult<at>us.af.mil) with resume/CV information. Also contact if you have any questions. Please do not attach any files to any emails, but transmit them through the AMRDEC SAFE drop box system (https://safe.amrdec.army.mil/safe/).
