Research of the earthquake source, development and implementation of earthquake early warning
The UC Berkeley Seismological Laboratory (BSL) is pleased to announce new positions. These positions are all to work with the earthquake source physics and earthquake early warning group lead by Prof Richard Allen. The group is working to better understand the physics of large magnitude earthquakes and to develop methodologies for earthquake early warning. The implementation of these methodologies will be tested on California's real-time geophysical networks, where we will evaluate their current and likely future performance. Earthquake early warning is the rapid detection of earthquakes underway, estimation of the ground shaking hazard they pose, and warning of people in harm's way. The successful applicants will work on a variety of projects related to early warning and real-time operations at the BSL. These will likely include research of the early phases of rupture nucleation and propagation, the development of seismic- and geodetic-based methods for rapid earthquake characterization, the use of new types of geophysical networks including MEMS-type sensors, the development of delivery tools to provide the warning, and the engagement of warning users.
Funding for all the positions is available beginning January 1, 2012, positions will be open until filled. Additional information about the positions, including the timeline for application evaluation, will be posted on the BSL webpage as it becomes available:
The remaining unfilled positions are:
Junior Programmer Analyst. A fulltime staff position to support the earthquake early warning project and related real-time operations. More details will be posted on the BSL website as they become available.
The specific responsibilities of all the positions are negotiable, and interested applicants should contact Prof. Richard Allen (email@example.com) to discuss interests. If you would like to receive additional email notifications as position details and application deadlines become available send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
