The Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford is currently recruiting a PDRA in Active Tectonics Research:
We seek to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work closely with Professor Richard Walker as part of a broader consortium in the NERC-funded ‘Looking Into the Continents from Space’ project, whose principal aim is to provide insights into earthquake hazard and crustal deformation through the application of a range of remote-sensing, field-based, seismological, and modelling approaches. The post is co-funded by COMET, which is a world-leading centre for understanding tectonic and volcanic processes and hazards (comet.nerc.ac.uk). The PDRA will join a thriving group involved in remote-sensing and field-based research in the study of active faulting and natural hazards.
The post is based in the Department of Earth Sciences and will be overseen by Richard Walker, Barry Parsons and Philip England. The post will also involve close collaboration with scientists at the other partner institutions involved in COMET and LICS. The successful applicant will be responsible for the mapping and analysis of fault-based geomorphology using high-resolution satellite imagery and digital topography, supplemented with fieldwork in selected regions. The production of high-resolution digital topographic datasets through field-based, aerial, or satellite methods, forms an important component of the duties. They will also be expected to possess or to develop skills in measuring surface displacements through the matching of optical satellite imagery, and to support both tectonic and volcanic applications of high-resolution imagery and elevation data throughout COMET

The following open position might be of interest to the Active tectonics and paleoseismology community:We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Assistant for a 12 month fixed term appointment working on the exciting UNAM-CONACYT-funded project on “Spatial and Temporal Variations of Upper Plate Deformation across the Guerrero portion of the Mexican Subduction Zone” at the Institute of Geography and the Tsunami and Paleoseismology Laboratory, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico City Campus. The candidate will pursue fundamental and applied research into the assessment of both temporal and spatial vertical crustal deformation associated with both slow (interseismic) and rapid (coseismic) crustal deformation across the inner forearc region of the central Mexican subduction zone on the Guerrero sector, where the Cocos plate underthrusts the North American plate. The candidate will be responsible for the development and execution of laboratory and field research, conduct studies to develop a model of long-term deformation, writing reports and papers.
PhD and postdoc positions available at Pukyong National University, South Korea – active faults and seismic hazard2019-01-25 | in Uncategorized | one response
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

The following open position may be of interest for the tectonics community:
The Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris has an opening for a post-doctoral position to
carry out research in tectonics and structural geology. The project (PI: Martine Simoes) is
funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) to assess active deformation and
seismic hazards in slowly deforming orogens, by quantifying deformation over various timescales,
from long-term geological deformation down in time to short-term processes at the scale
of the seismic cycle. The Western Kunlun mountain range (China) will be considered as a case

Graduate Student/PostDoc Position available in Haifa – Integrated tsunami hazard study: Modeling and sediments2017-05-15 | in Jobs
This very interesting job offer was sent around by our colleague Beverly Goodman-Tchernov:
Past tsunami events have impacted the Israeli coastline, and future tsunamis are anticipated. Physical evidence exists both in historical written records and sedimentological field deposits. Incorporating physical evidence with computational modeling makes it possible to better understand the magnitude of past events and create realistic predictions for the future. The project is in collaboration with Geological Survey of Israel, Virginia Tech, IOLR, and the University of Haifa. It will use multi-sourced data to produce modeling scenarios for past tsunamis and produce a complex reference set of theoretical scenarios to be used in practical real-time hazard assessments. more
