The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University seeks a postdoctoral research associate to conduct research on earthquakes and fluids in Chile and Oklahoma. The postdoc will analyze data from a newly acquired dense “nodal” seismometer array over the 2016 Mw5.8 Pawnee earthquake aftershocks, and from new broadband deployments in Oklahoma and Chile. The postdoc will work at Cornell, supervised by Katie Keranen, and be funded through projects related to the fluids-earthquakes theme. In addition to analysis of the new datasets, the postdoc will participate in field servicing of instruments in both Chile and Oklahoma. A completed Ph.D. in geophysics or a related field is required, and field experience is helpful though not required. While the start date is negotiable, we prefer a start date early in 2017. The position is for one year and is renewable, contingent on funding and performance. Please send a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and the names of at least three professional references to: Katie Keranen, keranen<at>cornell.edu<pritchard<at>cornell.edu>. Cornell University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and Educator.
