Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL)

Postdoc Position: Fluid Driven Earthquake

In the framework of The ERC project BEFINE (mechanical BEhavior of Fluid Induced Earthquake), the Laboratory of Experimental Rock Mechanics ( of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL) is offering a 12 months post-doc contract (renewable 2 times), ideally starting on September 1st, 2018.

The selected candidate will develop experimental approaches to simulate the dynamics of fluid driven earthquake accounting for thermo-Hydro-Mechanical couplings, and wave propagation.

Candidates should possess a strong background in rock mechanics including fracture mechanics and acoustic monitoring. Additional knowledge on high temperature, high pressure experimental rock deformation would be a plus.

Interested candidates should contact Marie Violay at, (including cover letter and a resume).
