Dear all,

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford to work on regional seismic tomography within the interdisciplinary project “MC2: Mantle Circulation Constrained”.

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 the large and diverse seismology group in the Department of Earth Sciences in Oxford, close to the city centre and University Parks. The Department of Earth Sciences is a vibrant community, with a large number of postdoctoral researchers across various disciplines. The successful candidate will work here with myself and in collaboration with Dr Christophe Zaroli (Strasbourg), with significant interaction with other members of the interdisciplinary MC2 team expected as well.

The closing date for applications is 21st June 2022. To view further details of this post and to apply please visit:
