We seek a PhD student for a fully-funded position at the Research School of Earth Sciences, The Australian National University. The student will work on an ARC-funded project "Lighting up dark fibre for seismic imaging". The project is aimed to advance cutting-edge DAS technology and big data processing to develop unprecedented high-resolution images of the Earth’s subsurface, detect micro-seismicity, and thereby relate geological observations to Earth processes.

The student will ideally have a degree in geophysics, physics, or geology with a strong maths and programming background. The project includes participation with field deployments, high performance computing, and teaching or outreach activities if of interest to the student.

The PhD is funded for 3.5 years and includes a full studentship including intuition fees plus ~$30k AUD annual stipend (tax-free). The successful applicant will be joining an excellent group of seismologists, mathematical geophysicists and geodynamicists with interests in various aspects of global and regional geophysical problems at ANU.

Please send expressions of interest including a CV with contact information for 2 references, and a two-page cover letter with research interests to Prof. Meghan Miller.
