In the area of seismology/geomechanics we are offering a 2-year post-doc position on seismic risk assessment and governance. We are looking for an excellent scientist that will join ongoing interdisciplinary teams and research efforts, focused on enhancing the understanding of induced earthquakes, seismic risk assessment, monitoring and mitigation. The position is part of a large international and multidisciplinary EC GEOTHERMICA project on de-risking enhanced geothermal energy projects (DEEP). You will work with a team of observational seismologists, reservoir engineers and rock physicists working on enhancing our fundamental understanding of the physics of induced seismicity and risk mitigation approaches. Within the project you will be particularly involved with designing the next generation of best-practice guidelines and protocols for monitoring, assessing and de-risking EGS projects and risk-based thresholds for geothermal operations in the Netherlands. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with industry partners and in partnership with the US Department of Energy geothermal test site FORGE in Utah.
We are specifically looking for candidates with experience in seismic risk assessment, ground motion modelling, and seismic risk mitigation strategies.
Interested candidates should have:
- A PhD in Geophysics, Geology, Physics, or Engineering.
- A proven record of excellence and innovation in a relevant domain of seismological research, and the interest to work in a highly collaborative and team-oriented environment.
- Proficiency in written and spoken English, experience in project management, supervision etc, is considered a plus.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (Salary indication: € 2.836,00 - € 4.474,00).
