The Institut des Sciences de la Terre at Grenoble (ISTerre/CNRS), France is opening a Postdoc position in the framework of the ERC project SEISMAZE.
This project is aimed at studies of slow transient deformation processes in geological systems based on seismological observations.
One of the central activities of this project is the development of new approaches for the modeling of slow transient processes in tectonic and volcanic contexts.
The proposed 2-year postdoc position is focused on numerical modeling of seismic tremors and slow deformation transients observed in major tectonic faults and volcanic systems based on methods combining viscoelastic and damage rheologies.
The position is expected to start in the fall of 2021.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with strong numerical and methodological skills.
At the time of appointment, the successful postdoc candidates must have a PhD degree in geophysics, physics, mechanics or a closely related field and a strong expertise in numerical simulations of rheological models, as well as excellent English skills.
ISTerre (Insitut des Sciences de la Terre/Institute of Earth Sciences) is a joint research unit comprised of 300 people. It operates under the supervision of the CNRS, (University Grenoble Alps, University Savoie Mont Blanc, French National Research Institute for Development / French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks), and is subsidiary of Observatory of Earth Sciences and Astronomy of Grenoble and of PAGE, a research center of Grenoble-Alpes University.
Organized in 10 research teams, the primary goal of our research unit is the physical and chemical study of the planet Earth through a combination of observations of natural objects, experimentation, and the modeling of complex processes.
The selected candidate will be part of the Ondes team including 65 researchers, post-docs and PhD students, including the other members of the Seismaze project.
