The Seismology team at University of Strasbourg (France) is seeking a
postdoctoral researcher in the field of seismic tomography. The
project aims at providing high-resolution images of the 3D structure
of the Alpine orogenic system using cutting edge joint inversion
techniques.

A PhD in Geophysics and experience with seismic tomography and
analysis of seismological data are required. The successful candidate
will be expected to apply novel approaches to jointly analyze newly
obtained data recorded as part of the European AlpArray project
(http://www.alparray.ethz.ch) and composed of body-waves, surface wave
dispersion and receiver functions. Specifically, we intend to apply a
Backus-Gilbert inversion scheme recently developed in our group
(Zaroli, 2016; Zaroli et al., 2017), which provides an entirely new
way to deal with the estimation and appraisal of tomographic models.
Funding is guaranteed for 1 year as of September 2018, with a
possibility of continuation for a second year.

The University of Strasbourg Earth's Science department (EOST) covers
a large domain of Earth Sciences, and offers excellent research
conditions. With a large proportion of international students and
mixing cultural diversity, Strasbourg is one of the tops french city
for international students (http://www.en.unistra.fr).

Application documents: please send a cover letter explaining your
motivation for the position, a CV, a list of publications and the
names of three references (for letters of recommendation) to
c.zaroli<at>unistra.fr, zigone<at>unistra.fr and
zacharie.duputel<at>unistra.fr. Review of materials will begin
immediately.
