Full Time
Contract Type:
Placed On:
31st July 2020

Location: National Oceanography Centre Southampton
Fixed Term: 12 months, with possibility to extend for at least an additional 12 months

Interview Date: To be confirmed
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position at the University of Southampton, based at the National Oceanography centre. The successful candidate will play a vital role in a large international project to image and understand the lithosphere – asthenosphere system, mantle dynamics, the mantle transition zone, seismicity, and/or tectonics either globally or at an oceanic, large igneous province, and/or subduction zone setting. You will work on the European Research Council-funded EURO-LAB project. You will do one or more of the following projects: global imaging of the tectonic plate, global imaging of the transition zone, joint seismic inversions, joint seismic-MT inversions, seismicity, induced seismicity, episodic tremor and slip, synthetic receiver function modelling of geodynamic predictions, full wave-form inversion, seismicity and tectonic studies, and/or geodynamic modelling. There are possibilities to engage with in situ data collected from large ocean bottom seismic experiments for instance at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and several other locations.
There are also several possibilities to expand with fibre optics, machine learning, hazard, oceanographic links, and climate change. In addition to supporting these projects the fellow will be encouraged to develop their own research interests in seismology and geophysics. Interaction and collaboration with our collaborators in the US, France, Japan and Germany is key.
You will need to have a PhD* or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in seismology, geophysics, or related field. This role is full time fixed term for 12 months with the possibility of extension for at least 12 additional months. Start date would ideally be in the fall, although with some flexibility.
*Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
