Institution: EOST (Strasbourg) Open until: 1 June 2020. The seismology team at University of Strasbourg (France) invites application for a highly motivated PhD candidate to investigate the initiation of large earthquakes using near-fault observations. Although it is well established that some events are preceded by foreshocks, it is still unclear whether these foreshocks belong to a cascade of triggering leading to the mainshock or if they are markers of a large scale aseismic slip during th...
