*One PhD student* is sought to work on seismological topics including
but not limited to, Induced Earthquakes in the Sichuan Basin, Dynamic
Rupture Simulations, and/or Dense Array Based Imaging, within the Earth
System Science Programme, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).
Candidates should have a solid background of math and physics, as well
as a broad interest in earthquake physics. Experience of seismic data
processing and/or seismicity analysis is preferred.

Successful candidates must meet doctoral admission requirements of the
university (http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/sci/essc/pg_prg.html
http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/sci/essc/pg_prg.html). Assistantships (TA/RA)
will be offered at HK$18,025 per month. The candidate will start on
August 1^st , 2022.

Submission deadline has been extended to March 15^th . Evaluation will
start immediately.

*Two postdoctoral researcher positions* in earthquake seismology are
available in the *Shenzhen Research Institute* of CUHK. The focus of
research is to derive high-resolution subsurface structure and/or its
temporal variation based on dense array data. Target fields include, but
are not limited to, crustal fault zones and shale gas blocks in China.

The postdoc candidates should have a broad interest in earthquake
physics and sophisticated experience in seismic data processing.
Proficient programming skills are preferred. Experiences of seismic
tomography, waveform modeling, and/or deriving static and dynamic source
properties of earthquakes are desired.

The postdocs will reside in the Shenzhen Research Institute, under
supervision by Prof. Hongfeng Yang. The appointment is for *two years*,
with an annual stipend of ~300,000 RMB (US$ ~45,000). Applications will
be evaluated immediately, and the successful candidate are expected to
start by July 2022.

For further information, please send inquiries to Prof. Hongfeng Yang
(hyang<at>cuhk.edu.hk <hyang<at>cuhk.edu.hk>).
