Application deadline 2/28/2014
We invite applicants for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a multidisciplinary project aimed at constraining crustal structure and composition using seismic data. The project entails close collaboration between geochemistry/petrology (Rudnick and McDonough) and seismology (Lekic). Therefore, the ideal applicant will have research interests spanning these fields of study.
This full-time position is for a one year appointment starting by Fall 2014, with the possibility of extension.
A Ph.D. in geophysics, geology, or a related discipline is required. The candidate should have research experience in seismology, petrology, and/or geochemistry, and must demonstrate a strong computational background needed for seismic data processing, inversion, and/or imaging. Applicants should submit a letter of application addressing scientific and technical qualifications along with a curriculum vita and list of references to Ved Lekic (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin immediately, with a decision anticipated during Spring, 2014.
