Post-Doctoral Scholar in Computational Geodynamics
University of Kentucky
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences
The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Kentucky is accepting applications for a post-doctoral scholar in computational geodynamic modelling to begin no later than August 2017. The post-doc will work with the Pl to develop and use computational mantle convection models to explore the dynamics of the Earth's interior. The research program includes projects working on constraining large scale structures in the Earth's deep interior, such as the dynamical effect of the large low shear velocity provinces, and examining the effect of these features on the dynamics of a hotter early Earth. The post-doc will work on one or more of these research directions. The post-doc will also have the opportunity to develop their own parallel research track, ideally but not necessarily related to one of the research themes described.
Applicants should apply online at: http://ukjobs.uky.edu/postings/135230. Applications must include a current CV and a research statement (upload as Specific Request 1). Please also provide the names and contact information for three references when prompted in the application. This information may be used to solicit recommendation letters from your references within the employment system.
Review of applications will begin on March 15, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information about this position, email Dr. Keely O'Farrell (k.ofarrell at uky.edu<mailto:k.ofarrell at uky.edu>).
