Deep Earth Imaging Postdoctoral Fellow
Australia's future minerals, energy and water resources will come from greater depths in the onshore regions and from deep offshore plays. Our ability to find, define and exploit mineral resources is limited by a deep and complex regolith that covers about 80% of the Australian land mass. Undiscovered conventional oil and gas lies in deeper or more subtle traps, or else will come from unconventional sources onshore that require new geophysical methods to quantify. Deep Earth Imaging science will help us more precisely image and understand the significance of subsurface rock properties, which in turn will unlock the resource potential of this vast and relatively under-explored continent.
As a part of this effort, we seek two outstanding early career researchers in the broad domains of Full Waveform Inversion and Passive Seismology as new members of the growing team. Successful candidates will develop innovative seismic imaging methods that use data from dense broadband and short period seismic arrays, large-N seismic arrays and exploration-grade 2D and 3D seismic data from Australia and elsewhere to image the subsurface on multiple scales.
Postdoctoral Fellowships at CSIRO provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctoral studies and who have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships will help launch their careers, provide experience that will enhance their career prospects, and facilitate the recruitment and development of potential leaders for CSIRO.
Postdoctoral Fellows are appointed for up to three years and work closely with leading research scientists and engineers in their respective fields. They carry out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO with the possibility of novel and important scientific outcomes and present the findings in international publications and conferences.
We work flexibly at CSIRO, offering a range of options for how, when and where you work. Find out more here! Balance
