Dear colleagues,

The application deadline for the 15 PhD positions in the Innovative Training Network SPIN „Monitoring a Restless Earth” has been extended to April 5th, 2021!

We are looking for 15 highly motivated PhD candidates, or “Early-Stage Researchers” (ESRs).

We specifically encourage current Master students (or those pursuing equivalent degrees), who expect to complete their degree in 2021, to apply to the PhD positions. As long as your degree will be completed by the time of recruitment in the project, you are more than welcome to apply!

SPIN will train 15 PhD candidates in emerging measurement technologies in seismology such as DAS, large N arrays and rotational sensors. We will develop survey designs that optimise this novel technology to improve the monitoring of geohazards. Using models for the complex response of Earth materials to stress, and the field observations from novel sensor types, we aim to detect and exploit time-dependent material changes to improve forecasting of real emerging natural hazards.

SPIN brings together a network of excellent research departments, industrial partners, observatories and governmental organizations. This interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral network will enable the PhD candidates to gain international expertise at excellent research institutions, with a meaningful exposure of each candidate to other disciplines and sectors.

SPIN is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA).

PhD Positions are available at the following institutes:
- University of Hamburg (Germany)
- LMU Munich (Germany)
- University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom)
- ETH Zurich (Switzerland)
- ISTerre Grenoble (France)
- Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (France)
- GFZ Potsdam (Germany)
- Dublin Institute for Advances Studies (Ireland)
- British Geological Survey (United Kingdom)

The positions will have staggered starting dates between May-October 2021 for a duration of 3 years.

Please share this announcement with any potential candidates, encourage your students to apply! And please distribute to internal mailing lists at your institute.

Best regards,
