project aims at providing high-resolution images of the 3D structure
of the Alpine orogenic system using cutting edge joint inversion

A PhD in Geophysics and experience with seismic tomography and
analysis of seismological data are required. The successful candidate
will be expected to apply novel approaches to jointly analyze newly
obtained data recorded as part of the European AlpArray project
( and composed of body-waves, surface wave
dispersion and receiver functions. Specifically, we intend to apply a
Backus-Gilbert inversion scheme recently developed in our group
(Zaroli, 2016; Zaroli et al., 2017), which provides an entirely new
way to deal with the estimation and appraisal of tomographic models.
Funding is guaranteed for 1 year as of September 2018, with a
