Research Fellow in Deformation Modelling

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in deformation modelling?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive universities?

We are seeking a Post-doctoral Research Fellow to join the European research project DEEPVOLC: Forecasting Volcanic Activity Using Deep Learning. We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly numerate scientist who will develop models to simulate surface deformation for various geophysical processes occurring at volcanoes, to build up training datasets. There will be potential to develop research beyond this goal, depending on specific research outcomes or interests.

You will work alongside other researchers in the DEEPVOLC team, which aims to use data on how volcanoes behave globally to automatically identify, and forecast, deformation at volcanoes locally. You will have a PhD in geophysics, engineering, mathematics, computer science or a related discipline, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a team. You will participate in all the project meetings and be expected to actively contribute to outreach and training activities as required. You will be expected to publish research papers and to present your research at national and international meetings.
