The School of Ocean and Earth Science at the National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, UK seeks a Research Fellow in the field of seismology with a focus on imaging crust and mantle discontinuities to understand dynamics and tectonics. The aim of the project is to increase the global understanding of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary, the formation and evolution of the lithosphere, continent formation, and/or melting processes beneath volcanically active regions. The postholder will have the opportunity to use several regional datasets and also to compare findings to the IRIS FARM database to attain a global perspective. Full waveform modelling will be employed to test the accuracy of interpretations.
