Job Opportunity Studying Induced Seismicity at the U.S. Geological Survey

The U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Science Center (ESC) in Menlo Park, California, seeks a Geophysicist to analyze and conduct research on seismic network data collected at sites of suspected induced seismicity associated with deep underground fluid injection or production. This will be a permanent position at the GS-9 or GS-11 level. Primary duties will include: analysis of data collected from seismic networks maintained by the Induced Seismicity Project (e.g., pick phase arrival times, determine earthquake locations and focal mechanisms, etc.), conducting research to better understand the causes and consequences of induced earthquakes, assisting in field deployments of seismic networks, and monitoring the state of health of these seismic networks. The ideal candidate will have background knowledge in seismology or a related field and be interested in becoming a part of a multidisciplinary research group working to further our understanding of induced earthquakes.
