Open position: PostDoc on seismic hazard characterization & mitigation, Aix-en-Provence

The CEREGE laboratory in Aix-en-Provence (France) look for a PostDoc in the field of seismic hazard and/or earthquake geology. The position is in the framework of the RISKMED OT MED funded project “ Natural risks in the Mediterranean: Hazard, vulnerability, perception and management”.

Deadline for application is 4 July.

Tasks:

  • Organisation and implementation of field surveys in Italy and Turkey in collaboration with local colleagues.
  • Review and compile existing data, and acquire new data to better understand the frequency and dynamics of large earthquakes in Central Italy and western Turkey through surface observations and paleoseismological reconstruction over a range of different temporal and spatial scales.
  • Convert all data into an open database.
  • Analyze and interpret all data with respect to existing scaling laws and in terms of seismic hazard.
  • Produce with social scientists engaged in the project (geographers and psychologists) comprehensible scientific information to public and territorial managers as the basis for recommended preparedness and mitigation actions.
  • Participate to a participatory process and to focus groups concerning risk mitigation strategies (science communication, risk communication, public outreach) in targeted areas.
