Dear all, We have a postdoc opportunity at the University of Oxford to work on the mechanics of slow earthquakes, mostly from a modelling perspective, with about 9 months of funding from a NERC project. We've gotten some interesting seismic and geodetic observations as part of this project, and the goal of this postdoc will be largely to analyse some of the observations and to see how and if some models of slow earthquakes can match these and other data. The postdoc will join a group with re… [more]
