U.S. Geological Survey's Cascades Volcano Observatory seeks to hire a
research geophysicist with expertise in geodesy as a permanent appointment
at the GS-13 grade level ($94,425-122,750 per year). Minimum experience
required is the equivalent of a Ph.D. in geophysics or a related field as
well as one year of postdoctoral research. The incumbent will conduct
research on deformation of volcanoes in the Cascade Range and elsewhere to
elucidate volcanic, hydrothermal, and tectonic processes, interpret
volcanic unrest, and contribute to forecasts of eruptive activity.
Responsibilities will include development and implementation of geodetic
monitoring strategies for volcanoes in the western United States using the
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), InSAR, and other geodetic
techniques. The successful candidate will need to have experience modeling
geodetic and other monitoring data to infer volcanic, tectonic, or
hydrothermal processes such as magma storage or transport, and show an
ability to integrate that work with insights gained from related
interdisciplinary fields (e.g., seismology, geochemistry, geology, remote
sensing). It will also be necessary to demonstrate an ability to publish
research in high impact scientific journals and show evidence of stature
amongst professional colleagues. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. The U.S.
Geological Survey is an equal-opportunity employer. Applicants must apply
for the position via USA Jobs More detailed
information may be found at the USA Jobs vacancy number SAC-2019-0216 (

). Closing date for applications is midnight by Eastern Standard Time May
31, 2019. College transcripts must be submitted. Further inquiries about
the nature of the position may be directed to Daniel Dzurisin or Seth Moran
