PhD position in seismology


Location: Lyon, France

Description:

The open PhD position falls within the broad domain of computational seismology. The primary objective of the project is to develop novel algorithms for inversion of seismic data. Developments should be geared towards imaging seismic anisotropy in the mantle with fully non-linear inverse methods, such as Bayesian sampling methods.

The position is in the dynamic, growing seismology group in Lyon. The applicant will interact with other geophysicists in Lyon, and will have access to our on-site super-computer of 1000 CPU cores. Students in Lyon receive broad training in geophysics through short courses, workshops, and attendance at international schools and major conferences. For additional information on the project please contact Thomas Bodin (thomas.bodin@ens-lyon.fr).

Applicants should have an advanced degree (M.Sc. or equivalent), background in geophysics, physics or mathematics and strong computing skills, including programming. Applicants should submit a resume, statement of research interests and experience, and names of three references via email to thomas.bodin@ens-lyon.fr Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
