[Research Description]
Research and technical development to establish real-time continuous monitoring of seafloor deformation in the seafloor and seafloor borehole environment, mainly targeting the Nankai Trough seismogenic zone in Japan, as well as scientific analysis of seafloor observation data on crustal deformation.

[Job Specification]
The Ocean Floor Observatory Technology Development Group, R&D Center for Earthquake and Tsunami, JAMSTEC is actively promoting the research and development of scientific sensor systems for seafloor deformation monitoring, and the deployment of such systems in seafloor and deep seafloor borehole environments, as a part of JAMSTEC'S overarching research project entitled "Wide-area Seafloor Observation and Monitoring for National Resilience".

Successful applicants will engage in the development of scientific instruments for seafloor deformation monitoring. More specifically, they will have a role in the planning, implementation, and data analysis of tests during the system development in land and seafloor test facilities. The test facilities include JAMSTEC's seismic vault in Kamioka-mine, Gifu, Japan, and seafloor cabled borehole observatory sites in the Nankai Trough. They may also conduct seismological and geophysical research using seafloor data from leading-edge seafloor observation systems, Dense Ocean-Floor Network systems for Earthquake and Tsunamis (DONET), and seafloor borehole observatories in the Nankai Trough, Japan.

[Relevant Research Fields]
Seismology, geophysics, and optical measurement.
