UW seismology is opening for a postdoctoral position supported by the
Packard Foundation. The research will explore seismic signatures of surface
processes, volcanic, and earthquakes in the greater Pacific Northwest using
machine-learning approaches for event-based analysis and/or ambient-noise
monitoring. The postdoctoral researcher will work in close collaboration
with analysts and seismologists of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.
The postdoctoral researcher will work in an open-science environment and be
comfortable learning high-performance computing for observational
seismology on local and cloud Linux servers. A Ph.D. in seismology and/or
computational sciences is required.



The postdoctoral researcher will be encouraged to collaborate beyond the
research group with colleagues at the ESS Department, the USGS, the UW
eScience Institute, and the Department of Applied Mathematics. The
researcher will also participate in the SCOPED project. The postdoctoral
researcher will have access to an in-house petascale computing facility,
training, and allocation to Cloud computing, dedicated access to a newly
funded DAS/DSTS facility at UW by the Murdock Charitable Trust, and
fieldwork opportunities. Seattle is also a beautiful area to live in, with
skiing 45 minutes away and sailing/kayaking from campus.



The successful candidate will receive a salary commensurate to research
experience, support for computing, and travel to conferences (we all miss
it!). The position is initially one year but will be reappointed to longer
(at least one additional year) based upon satisfactory work.



International applicants are encouraged to apply as recent hires and
postdocs have received visas and authorization to enter the United States.



Candidates are asked to email Marine Denolle (mdenolle<at>uw.edu
<mdenolle<at>uw.edu>) with a CV, a short research interest statement, two
representative publications, a GitHub repository with recent projects.
Review of the applications will start immediately until November 1st. Start
date any time between Nov 2021-July 2022.
