Its research is focused on the scientific description of seismic waves, the physical processes that excite them (e.g. fracturing, slow slip and transient deformations, volcanoes, land slides, glacier and oceanic movements, explosions, atmospheric movements), and on methods that are used to extract information on the medium that they traverse (tomography).
• Development of the next generation of ground-motion models using in engineering seismology, probabilistic seismic hazard/risk assessment and seismic early warning
• Collaborate closely in an interdisciplinary context
• Present, publish and communicate research results at scientific meetings and in scholarly journals
• A PhD obtained in the last 5 years in the domains of Engineering or theoretical Seismology, Geophysics or Computer sciences.
• Demonstrated experience ground motion modelling (either empirical or physics based)
• Excellent programming skills, experience in HPC, machine learning or data assimilation techniques.
• Fluency in English. Knowledge of French would be regarded positively.
• Good communication skills
A world-renowned geosciences organisation, the IPGP is associated with the CNRS and an integrated institute of the Université Paris Cité. Bringing together more than 500 people, the IPGP studies the Earth and the planets from the core to the most superficial fluid envelopes, through observation, experimentation and modelling.
The research aeras are structured through 4 main unifying themes: Interiors of the Earth and Planets, Natural Hazards, Earth System and Origins.
The IPGP is in charge of labelled observation services in volcanology, seismology, magnetism, gravimetry and erosion. And the IPGP's permanent observatories monitor the four active French overseas volcanoes in Guadeloupe, Martinique, Réunion Island and Mayotte.
The IPGP hosts powerful computing resources and state-of-the-art experimental and analytical facilities and benefits from first-class technical support. The IPGP provides its students with geosciences training that combine observation, quantitative analysis and modelling, and that reflects the quality, richness and thematic diversity of the research conducted by the IPGP teams.
The laboratory of Seismology has 14 researchers. Its research is focused on the scientific description of seismic waves, the physical processes that excite them (e.g. fracturing, slow slip and transient deformations, volcanoes, land slides, glacier and oceanic movements, explosions, atmospheric movements), and on methods that are used to extract information on the medium that they traverse (tomography).
