Job opportunity for posting.

Zhongwen Zhan’s group at the Caltech Seismological Laboratory is seeking applicants for a post-doctoral research position in seismology to work on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS). We are now operating multiple DAS arrays in southern California and have new ones in plan over the next two years. The focus of the position will be using the rapidly growing DAS dataset to attack important science questions, broadly defined (Zhan, 2020). Interests in applying DAS to new frontiers (e.g., volcanology, hydrology, glaciology) are encouraged. We are also interested in candidates who can develop innovative and scalable algorithms to process continuous DAS data streams.

A PhD in geophysics or a related area at the time of appointment is required. The initial appointment is for one year with an option to extend to two years.

Applicants should send a current curriculum vita, a research statement (including current research and research interests if joining our group), and the names of three references to Priscilla McLean (pmclean<at> Applications received by July 01, 2020 will be considered fully. Preferred start date is late 2020 or early 2021, but flexibility for earlier or later starting dates is possible.
