Research Associate in Seismology
The Research Associate will join the vibrant Geophysics Group in the School of Earth Sciences. Initially, this position will focus on assessing seismic hazards based on existing instrument catalogues. However, it is hoped that temporary networks will be installed to improve coverage and lower detection levels for seismicity. This may involve fieldwork to deploy instruments in southern Malawi. In conjunction with other postdocs mapping faulting and ground motion using geodetic measurements, this information will be used to redefine the tectonic earthquake source models for the region. There is flexibility in the scope of the hazard assessment, with the ultimate goal of seisimic hazard assessment across the entire East Africa Rift System.
In addition to these duties, the Research Associate will be expected to produce work of publishable quality for appropriate high-quality peer-reviewed journals, present papers at national and international meetings and contribute to the development of collaborative research grants.
