These are great opportunities for PhD students and postdocs. A huge research programme in South Korea is now devoted to investigate the active faults of the country and to understand the seismic hazard, after two damaging earthquakes hit the country recently.
Recruiting PhD Research Student and Postdoctoral Researcher
Starting from March 2019, ‘The Korean Active Fault Research Group (KAFRG)’ and ‘The Institute of Active Fault and Earthquake Hazard Mitigation (IAFEHM)’ at Pukyong National University in South Korea are looking for competent and enthusiastic research students and geologists for PhD and Post-doc.
Our research group and institute are currently leading active fault investigations and researches in South Korea. We also have been implementing collaborative researches with various domestic and overseas universities and research institutes. The ongoing main projects of our research group are ‘Investigation of active faults on the Korean Peninsula’ and ‘The safety evaluation for geological conditions and earthquake hazard for nuclear power plant sites and waste disposal facilities.’
The initial employment – contract period is 1 year, and depending on the researcher’s achievement and contribution to the group the working year(s) can be extended. The annual salary will be arranged according to the researcher’s research experiences and the performances. more
USGS is currently advertising an interesting position for a paleoseismologist – permanent and full time.
Opening and closing date: 08/10/2018 to 09/10/2018 (I am not sure if that means 10 August to 10 September or 8-9 October…)
–Perform field-based paleoseismic research to characterize the chronology of past earthquakes or slip rates on faults in the greater San Andreas fault system in northern California.
–Perform geological research to characterize crustal deformation in northern California and elsewhere. more

An interesting opportunity for a postdoc position is currently open at Potsdam University, Germany. If you have a clever research idea, the university will basically support you and help establishing a research group via applying for more advanced funding schemes. So it’s a bit of an unusual advert, but certainly a nice one. Here’s the advert (ruthlessly copied from Potsdam University): more

The following very interesting mail reached us by Abdelkrim Aoudia from the ICTP in Trieste (Italy):
Three Postdoctoral positions in paleoseismology and seismology
are available at the Earth System Physics (ESP) section of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). The two first positions (A and B) are funded by the GENERALI Group– a major player in the global insurance industry, in the framework of a research project integrating earthquake fault studies and simulations of the ground-motion.
The third position (C) is funded in the framework of an international collaborative effort following the recent Nepal Gorkha 2015 earthquake. The research topic involves a study of the structure, dynamics and seismicity of Nepal Himalaya.
