Postdoctoral Fellowship in Seafloor Seismology

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Posted: 08/20/2019

Open Until: 10/15/2019

The newly formed Ocean Bottom Seismometer Instrument Center (OBSIC) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) announces a competition for a Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship. OBSIC’s mission is to support discovery of the earth’s internal structure and its dynamic processes using seafloor seismic measurements. (See https://obsic.whoi.edu/.) The OBSIC Postdoctoral Fellowship, recognizing the importance of marine seismology and ocean-bottom seismic instrumentation to continued discovery in Earth Sciences, aims to help maintain the strength of the field by supporting instrumentation-focused research and development.

You are invited to apply for this Fellowship for any project related to: 1) research and engineering in the area of seafloor seismic instrumentation, including the development and/or application of new sensors; 2) advancing our knowledge of earth structure with an emphasis on using ocean- bottom seismograph data, including the development and/or application of new analytical methodologies; 3) understanding earthquake-related processes using seafloor seismology and/or geodesy; 4) advancing our knowledge of the interplay between seafloor seismic measurements and oceanographic processes; and 5) other projects within this broad scope. The successful candidate may choose to carry out research with faculty in any of WHOI’s science and engineering departments, with staff at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center, or a combination thereof.

Completed applications will be accepted up to October 15, 2019 for consideration for Postdoctoral Scholar Awards for 2020-2021. Recipients of awards can initiate their study and research period at the Institution any time after January 1, 2020 and before December 1, 2021.
