The newly formed Geophysical Detection of Nuclear Proliferation (GDNP) University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) at the UAF Geophysical Institute (GI) is seeking a postdoctoral fellow. The GDNP UARC was established to detect, locate, characterize, and assess the threat potential of nuclear activities worldwide through research, development, testing, and evaluation of scientific and technological capabilities.

The successful applicant will help develop novel signal processing techniques to aid in infrasonic source detection, location, and characterization by combining data from multiple seismo-acoustic station installation types. This position has the exciting opportunity to utilize the unprecedented amount of seismo-acoustic data currently available in Alaska, including the EarthScope Transportable Array. Funding is available for two years, and remote telework options will be considered. The successful applicant will work with members of the Wilson Alaska Technical Center, Alaska Volcano Observatory, and Alaska Earthquake Center to help make the developed algorithms operational. Funding for regular scientific meetings is provided and outreach activities are encouraged. U.S. citizenship is preferred, though not required.
