Post-doc in Geophysics

at Geophysics Program of the Department of Earth Sciences,
University of Uppsala, Sweden

Uppsala University is the oldest university in Scandinavia and is well-ranked internationally. The Department of Earth Sciences is Sweden's largest and broadest such department, with about 260 employees, and includes subjects ranging from Geophysics and Geology to Palaeontology, Hydrology, Environmental Analysis and Meteorology. Research areas within Geophysics include earthquake seismology, applied geophysics (reflection seismology and electromagnetic methods) and geodynamics.

The Geophysics Program runs the Swedish National Seismic Network (SNSN), consisting of about 70 permanent broad-band stations, and has an extensive equipment pool for passive and controlled-source seismic and electromagnetic field studies. Current and recent activities relating to induced seismicity include seismicity related to mining and underground construction, geothermal heat extraction, and injection of fluids, including carbon dioxide. Other significant areas of research are the development of innovative processing procedures for reflection seismic data, novel geophysical instruments, multi-dimensional inversion methods for seismic tomography and electromagnetic data and joint inversion methods. Further information about the department and program can be found at We now intend to strengthen the research within the seismology part with a new post-doc.
