Dear all,

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway University of London to work on the interdisciplinary project “MC2: Mantle Circulation Constrained”. This position is fixed term for 18 months, with a start date in early 2022.

The MC2 project led by Cardiff University aims to understand the nature and evolution of upwellings in the Earth’s mantle. The specific aim for this position is the development of regional seismic tomography models of upwellings in the Earth’s mantle that will be used to constrain global mantle circulation models, using new inverse techniques that quantify the seismic model uncertainties.

We are looking for a candidate with a strong background in seismology, including experience with seismological data and inverse methods. They should have a demonstrable aptitude in computer programming and developing numerical codes, and knowledge of mantle structure and dynamics is desirable. The successful candidate must either have, or be close to completing, a PhD in a relevant field (e.g. Geophysics, Seismology, Physics).

The post is based in Egham (West London, near Heathrow) where the university is situated in a beautiful, green campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London. The PDRA will work here with myself in collaboration with Prof Ana Ferreira (UCL) and Dr Christophe Zaroli (Strasbourg), as well as other members of the MC team.

The closing date for applications is 3rd December 20201. To view further details of this post and to apply please visit:
