Job Opening

Postdoc position in the field of earthquake ground-motion modelling

Swiss Seismological Service, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Posted: 12/19/2018

Open Until: 03/01/2019

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher for an open position in our international team at the Swiss Seismological Service, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Main tasks are the improvement of site-specific seismic hazard assessment and regional ground-motion prediction equations. This will be achieved by considering realistic sources and complex models for path and site effects. It is expected that both empirical and stochastic methods will be applied, also including descriptions of uncertainties.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Seismology, Geophysics, Engineering Seismology or a related Engineering discipline. Strong background in statistics and/or engineering seismology is required. Proven experience with ground-motion prediction equations represents an important advantage. Excellent scientific programming and communication skills are a prerequisite, as is fluency in English. Knowledge of German or French would be regarded positively. We expect a team-oriented and motivated candidate. The position should be filled by April 1, 2019 (negotiable).
