Postdoctoral Fellow: Earthquake Processes

  • PostDoc Opportunity
  • Austin, TX

Website Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin

The Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin seeks to hire a talented and innovative postdoctoral scholar. The scientific focus of this postdoctoral research opportunity is flexible in its scope, but should relate broadly to the advancement of our understanding of earthquake processes and their relation to natural hazards. The postdoctoral fellow will have direct access to supercomputing resources through the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), as well as a state-of-the-art local GPU computing cluster. Applicants are thus encouraged to “think big” in terms of their ambition in performing innovative and impactful research in the realm of earthquake hazard.

The postdoctoral appointment is initially for one year, with the aim for an extension to two years pending a successful first-year evaluation. The scholar will be supervised by Assistant Professor Daniel Trugman (dtrugman@jsg.utexas.edu) in the Department of Geological Sciences, but will be encouraged to seek collaborations across the Department of Geological Sciences and University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. The Jackson School of Geosciences has a strong commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in the geosciences, and applications from all underrepresented groups are highly encouraged.

The application package should include:

  • A document outlining past achievements and general research interests (1 page);
  • A two-year research proposal outlining the scientific problems the applicant aims to tackle during this postdoctoral appointment (2-3 pages)
  • A CV including a list of publications; and
  • A list with the names of three (3) potential references to contact
