We have openings for PhD students in earth sciences at Macquarie and a scholarship round that is currently open (see ad attached; closes 31st July).

I would be grateful if you could alert any good students who you think might be interested and qualified.

 

Macquarie does have an entry requirement of a 2-year Masters of which one year is research, but there are two ways to get around this for students with a shorter MSc or BSc Hons: [1] a joint MRES/PHD package on a 4-year scholarship, and [2] publications or abstracts which count as research time.

 

Note also that I am writing to you as a group because your institutions have agreements for co-tutelles with Macquarie, meaning that another option is to set up PhD projects supervised jointly between two institutions.

 

Best Regards,

Steve

The Gran Sasso Science Institute is offering a postdoctoral position in 

gravitational-wave detection:

 

https://applications.gssi.it/postdoc/

 

The deadline for applications is July 11, 2019. The appointment is for 

two years. It includes generous support for travel, and the yearly 

salary amounts to €36,000.00 gross.

 

The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) is an international PhD school 

and a center for research and higher education in the areas of Physics, 

Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Sciences. The gravitational-wave 

group at GSSI is formed around the faculty members Prof Eugenio Coccia, 

Dr Marica Branchesi, and Dr Jan Harms.

 

Our group has strong ties with the geophysics community. One of the main

challenges concerning the planning of future gravitational-wave detectors

is a detailed understanding and accurate numerical modeling of atmospheric 

perturbations including temperature, humidity, and sound fields. These

fields can produce significant noise in future gravitational-wave detectors

through direct gravitational coupling between atmosphere and test masses.

We are therefore considering applicants from the geophysics community 

with experience in atmospheric numerical modeling.

 

This research will be carried out as part of the PRIN research project 

“Characterization of the Sos Enattos mine in Sardinia as the site for the 

Einstein Telescope GW observatory”. Further details can be found on the 

web page. For informal inquiries please contact:

Dr Jan Harms (jan.harms@gssi.it).

Institution: GEOAZUR & INRIA (Sophia Antipolis, Nice region, France)
Open Until: 2019-07-31

Project abstract
The project intends to develop a novel, minimally-supervised curvilinear network extraction method by combining deep neural networks with active learning, where the deep neural networks are employed to automatically learn hierarchical and data-driven features of curvilinear networks, and the active learning is exploited to achieve high-quality extraction using as few annotations as possible. Furthermore, composite and hierarchical heuristic rules will be designed to constrain the geometry of curvilinear structures and guide the curvilinear graph growing. 
The proposed approach will be tested and validated on extraction of tectonic fractures and faults from a dense collection of satellite and aerial data and “ground truth” available at the Géoazur laboratory in the framework of the Faults_R_Gems project co-funded by the University Côte d’Azur (UCA) and the French National Research Agency (ANR). Then we intend to apply the new automatic extraction approaches to other scenarios, as road extraction in remote sensing images and blood vessel extraction in available medical image databases.

Candidate profile
Strong academic backgrounds in Stochastic Modeling, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Remote Sensing and Parallel Programming. A decent knowledge of Earth and telluric features (especially faults) will be appreciated.
At UCA, Géoazur and Inria we seek to increase the number of women in areas where they are under-represented and therefore we explicitly encourage women to apply. We are also committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in our workforce and therefore we encourage applications from such qualified individuals.

Institution: GEOAZUR & LEGOS & LUXCARTA 
Open Until: 2019-08-31

Research areas: deep learning, computer vision, geosciences

Position funded by the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, IRD (https://www.ird.fr/). IRD is a French public research institution that defends an original model of equitable scientific partnership with the countries of the South and an interdisciplinary and citizen science, committed to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Project abstract
The West African coast is one of the worldwide littoral areas most threatened by the ongoing climatic and anthropogenic global changes: with a low topography, a weak geological substratum, a poor fresh water supply, and a dense and rapidly expanding population, the West African littoral is highly vulnerable to current sea level rise, extreme climatic phenomena, erosion, and modifications of the ecosystems and resources. The project focuses on the ~3000 km-long littoral zone from Mauritania to Nigeria, and aims to measure, using satellite and topographic data, the distribution and space-time evolution of its major morphological, hydrological, environmental and urban features, so as to provide a reference measure of the current state of the littoral zone and first estimates of its erosion rates. In a first step, the post-doc researcher will develop deep learning architectures allowing the automatic recognition and extraction, from satellite (Sentinel 2, Spot 6-7, Pléiades), a!
irborne (photogrammetry) and topographic data (associated DSMs), of the major features of the littoral area: curvilinear features (such as coastline, hydrographic network, roads, sand dune ridges, sedimentary and geological boundaries, etc.), 3D features (such as buildings, dams, etc.), and textural features (such as vegetation, geological outcrops, water zones, etc.). The experts involved in this proposal will create training data sets, to enable deep learning training. The postdoc will develop algorithms as generic as possible, so that they could be applied to remote data of different types and resolutions, and possibly, to the extraction of other features than littoral structures. In a second step, the developed architectures will be used to automatically map the different littoral features. Time series of satellite images will be acquired on a few target zones, allowing, through repeated extraction of similar features, for the measurement of their space-time dynamics.

Duration: 2 years
Starting date: between September 1st and December 1st, 2019
Salary: gross salary per month 2500 EUR (i.e. approx. 2000 EUR net)

Hosting laboratory: GEOAZUR, Sophia Antipolis (https://geoazur.oca.eu/fr/acc-geoazur)
Other laboratories where the post-doc will work: LUXCARTA (https://luxcarta.com/) and LEGOS (http://www.legos.obs-mip.fr/

Candidate profile
Strong academic background in applied mathematics, machine learning and image processing. Motivation for academic and/or applied research, and for environmental issues. Curiosity, ability to learn quickly, capacity to work in team and to adapt to different work environments. 
The post-doc researcher will need to frequently commute between Géoazur and Luxcarta (~12 km apart), and therefore it would be good to have a driving license and a car.    

To apply, please email a full application to Isabelle Manighetti (manighetti@geoazur.unice.fr), Yuliya Tarabalka (ytarabalka@luxcarta.com) and Rafaël Almar (rafael.almar@ird.fr), indicating “IRD_Littoral_post-doc” in the e-mail subject line.
The application should contain:
- A motivation letter demonstrating motivation, strengths from academic or private sectors, and related experience to the position
- CV including publication list
- At least two major publications in pdf
- Minimum 2 reference letters


Postdoctoral position in glacier geophysics at the British Antarctic Survey (2-year appointment)

Description
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher to join our Ice Dynamics and Palaeoclimate Team. The successful candidate will analyse seismic data collected on Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, as part of the recent BEAMISH Project field campaign. You will primarily use basal seismicity, recorded on 35 surface-deployed instruments over a period of three months during austral summer 2018-19, to investigate basal conditions and ice column properties and help improve our understanding of processes controlling ice stream flow. Additional seismic, radar and GPS data will be available for analysis.

This role is part of the ongoing NERC-funded BEAMISH Project. BEAMISH is the first project to drill through, instrument and retrieve sediments from beneath the 2.2 km thick Rutford Ice Stream. The project involves investigators from BAS and several other institutions (including Swansea, Penn State, Leeds and Bristol universities). Your work will be undertaken in close cooperation with other team members at both BAS and our partner institutions. To be successful in this role, you must have experience of data analysis using Python, Matlab or similar packages on Linux and PC-based systems.

Qualification
First degree in physical science/mathematics plus PhD (or equivalent experience).

Duties
- Building on existing expertise, develop processing methodologies for the analysis of seismic data from ice streams.
- Ascertain temporal and spatial variability of seismicity; investigate source mechanisms; determine basal properties and ice column fabric.
- Validate the observations and integrate with other available observations.
- Interpret the implications of the results for fast-flowing ice streams in West Antarctica.
- Attend project meetings at BAS and at partner institutions to report on progress and share results.
- Present scientific results in the peer-reviewed literature and at conferences.
- There is a possibility of undertaking fieldwork in Antarctica as part of this role.
- Any other duties, within the remit of the role, as required by the Director

Contract type:  Full Time
Duration: Fixed-Term Appointment (2 Years)
Location:  Cambridge (UK) with potential for fieldwork in Antarctica from November 2019 to January 2020.

Please circulate this description of a PhD project to potential prospective students:

 

Sea level rose by 0.19 m over the last century (1901-2010) and glaciers accounted for 90% of sea level rise from melting of the cryosphere from 1971-2010. Glaciers are also expected to be the greatest contributor to eustatic sea level change in the present century with predictions of an increase of 0.26-0.55 m, and up to 1 m for the highest representative concentration pathway. However, the models used to derive sea level predictions are based only on an assessment of the glacier surface mass balance; they do not incorporate further ice mass loss due to a change in ice dynamics, such as increased calving from tidewater glaciers. This omission is a significant source of uncertainty in future sea level predictions.

This project aims to improve our understanding of the feedbacks and timescales involved in the tidewater glacier cycle and the response to climate change. About one quarter of the sea level rise over the last 50 years is estimated to have come from ice masses bordering the Gulf of Alaska making these glaciers globally significant. The fastest retreat has been seen in tidewater glaciers, such as in Glacier Bay, where the ice front retreated 100 km, and since 1982 in Columbia Bay. We seek a PhD student to work on representative tidewater systems and use a variety of tools to study the history of the glaciers including 2D flowline modelling, photogrammetry, feature tracking and output from a new climate reanalysis. The PhD student will work alongside a team of scientists from Australia, UK, USA and Svalbard who will contribute and provide guidance on geomorphological mapping, dating using cosmogenic nuclides, glacier reconstruction, remote sensing, and climate reanalysis to the project.

We are seeking a graduate with a strong academic record with experience in glaciology and/or the Earth sciences. Applicants should hold a good quality class honours degree, Masters by research or equivalent and/or publications. The student should have strong numerical skills and experience with coding. There is also the possibility to participate in field work. The student will receive $1,950 per annum to assist with project costs and up to $3,000 per student over the course of their candidature for travel. The student will also be supported by the project budget.

The University of Wollongong is committed to an equal opportunity working environment. Applicants must be eligible to study in an Australian university and have a high standard of English. Applicants should email a cover letter as an expression of interest, outlining their academic background and skillset, along with their CV and two referee’s contact details to Tim.Barrows@uow.edu.au. Shortlisting will begin from 1st July, 2019 and will continue until 30 Nov, 2019 or until filled. The preferred start date is 1 August, 2019. Please contact Prof. Timothy Barrows for further details.

The geophysics group at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand is seeking two MSc students to undertake research in seismology and fault mechanics, as well as further PhD students for various other projects. Funding received from the Marsden Fund of the Royal Society Te Ap?rangi will provide the successful MSc applicants with a $17,000 (NZD) stipend, and meet the cost of 12 months’ tuition. Students from countries other than New Zealand and Australia will need to meet the additional costs of international fees but are encouraged to inquire about other opportunities. Scholarships are available for prospective PhD students to provide stipend and fees for three years (email project contacts for more information). All projects can involve fieldwork throughout New Zealand. Available projects include:

1.MSc (funded) in estimating deep slip rates using repeating earthquakes:
  • 12 months MSc part 2 (student must hold a BSc honours degree or equivalent) supervised by Dr. Calum Chamberlain, Prof. John Townend in collaboration with Dr. Amanda Thomas (University of Oregon, USA);
  • The student will use recently developed catalogues of repeating earthquakes to estimate slip-rates at depth on active faults throughout New Zealand, and look at how these vary in time and relations to large earthquakes and other transient deformation signals;
  • For more information email Dr. Calum Chamberlain: calum.chamberlain@vuw.ac.nz by 30th August to start January-March 2020.
2. MSc (funded) into source properties of moderate magnitude earthquakes along New Zealand's Alpine Fault:
  • 12 months MSc part 2 (student must hold a BSc honours degree or equivalent) supervised by Dr. Emily Warren-Smith (GNS Science), Prof. John Townend in collaboration with A. Prof. Rachel Abercrombie (Boston University, USA);
  • The project will focus on analysing the source properties (stress drop, directivity, fault plane solutions) of moderate magnitude (M3—5.5) earthquakes occurring at key transitional segment boundaries on the Alpine Fault. These boundaries have been suggested to act as 'gates' during great (M7.8+) earthquakes – sometimes they let the rupture though, sometimes they don't. The analysis undertaken during this project will contribute to an improved understanding of the fault mechanics and heterogeneity at these segment boundaries, and how they act to influence large-scale rupture propagation. The analysis will focus on newly collected data from two dense broadband networks deployed in 2019, as well as existing temporary deployments along the Alpine Fault. Opportunities for fieldwork servicing Alpine seismic networks will be available.
  • For more information email Dr. Emily Warren-Smith: e.warren-smith@gns.cri.nz by 30th August to start January-March 2020.
3. PhD (unfunded: scholarships available) in Fiordland subduction zone initiation:
  • This project will utilise recently collected active source data alongside passive seismic data to image New Zealand’s southern subduction zone: the Fiordland/Puysegur subduction margin. The Puysegur subduction zone has the most frequent moderate-magnitude seismicity of any region in New Zealand, regularly produces earthquakes greater than M 7 and poses a significant tsunami threat to Southland, but is poorly understood mostly due to the remote nature of the surrounding region. Using our recently collected data the student will generate detailed images of the subduction zone, and study recently detected tremor signals in greater detail than previously possible.
  • For more information contact Prof. Rupert Sutherland: rupert.sutherland@vuw.ac.nz or Prof. Tim Stern: tim.stern@vuw.ac.nz 
4. PhD (unfunded: scholarships available) opportunity studying New Caldonia ophiolite emplacement:
  • The scientific problem of how ophiolites are emplaced, and a connection to large-scale subduction zone initiation remains a mystery. The international community is developing international onshore (ICDP) and offshore (IODP) drilling proposals to investigate this in New Caledonia. We are in the process of deploying an array of onshore broadband seismometers there, and we recently collected offshore seismic reflection and IODP data. We seek a geophysics PhD candidate to assist with fieldwork in New Caledonia and to analyse earthquake data, with a focus on understanding crustal structure of the ophiolite;

Dear Colleagues,

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Study invites applications for
one 4-year Ph.D. and two Postdoctoral positions in seismology.
The positions are in the seismology group at DIAS, with a broad,
active research programme in regional and global seismic imaging,
waveform and array tomography and lithospheric dynamics.

The positions are part of the project SEA-SEIS
(www.sea-seis.ie) that has deployed broadband, ocean-bottom
seismometers across a vast area in the North Atlantic Ocean, giving
the successful candidates an opportunity to participate in the
retrieval cruise.

The recent growth in the number of broadband seismic stations
around the world makes it possible to image the Earth’s interior
in unprsions, targeting fundamental problems of plate tectonics and
lithospheric dynamics.

The research projects are on waveform tomography and array
tomography, at the North Atlantic and global scales. Advances in
tomography methods will be implemented and applied. Scientific
targets of the research include the structure and evolution of the
lithosphere and underlying mantle, in the North Atlantic and globally,
the origins of the enigmatic North Atlantic Igneous Province
volcanism, the deep structure of the Iceland Hotspot and its
effect on the evolution of the region.

Ph.D. Studentship
-----------------
Duration: 4 years
Stipend: €18,500 per year, tax free.
Start date: 1 June, 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter (flexible).

The new data created in this project, used together with all other
availecedented detail. This presents opportunities for exciting
new discoveries, offering solutions to long-standing problems of
basic Earth science. In these PhD and Postdoctoral research
projects, the lithosphere and underlying mantle will be imaged
using very large surface- and S-wave datasets. The data will be
related to Earth structure using seismic and computational-petrology
inverable broadband data, will improve the resolution of tomographic
imaging in the entire N Atlantic and globally. Relationships between
seismic waveforms and temperature, density and composition of the
rock at depth will be formulated and used in the inversions. The
applications of the improved imaging methods will enhance our
understanding of the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere and
underlying mantle globally.

Students at DIAS receive broad training in geophysics through short
courses, workshops, and attendance at international schools and
major conferences. The group is very international and known for its
lively, friendly atmosphere. PhD students in the DIAS seismology
