2 postdoc positions in volcano modeling & eruption forecasting

University of Alaska, Fairbanks

Posted: 12/15/2021

Open Until: 03/06/2022

Two fully-funded 2-year postdoctoral positions in the field of volcano
modeling and eruption forecasting are available at the University of Alaska
Fairbanks (UAF) - Geophysical Institute (GI). The Postdoctoral Researchers
will work on developing innovative physics-based models and
statistics-based eruption forecasting models for Alaska volcanoes, within
the framework of the NSF-PREEVENTS Eruption Forecasting Project. This
project capitalizes on the wealth of data from the Alaska Volcano
Observatory; the multidisciplinary expertise of volcano observatory
scientists; and the analytical power provided by a team of graduate
students, postdoctoral fellows, UAF faculty, and other national and
international collaborators. Research and data analysis are currently being
conducted on four interrelated disciplines: (1) geodesy, (2) seismology &
infrasound, (3) volcanic gas geochemistry & remote sensing, and (4)
petrology, geochemistry & physical volcanology, and focuses on eight
recently active Alaska volcanoes: Cleveland, Okmok, Bogoslof, Shishaldin,
Pavlof, Veniaminof, Augustine, and Redoubt. The successful candidates will
develop state of the art methods, tools, and techniques while working with
a diverse group of collaborators.
