Postdoctoral fellowship for nonlinear site response analysis of the Canterbury earthquakes

The University of Canterbury, New Zealand seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join in on-going research related to ground motion and site response aspects of the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. The fellow will be involved in various aspects of performing nonlinear (total and effective stress) site response simulations, as well as further developing the underlying near-surface nonlinear soil models.

The fellowship is externally-funded for two years. The successful applicant will have completed a PhD in Earthquake/ Civil Engineering, Geophysics, or a closely related subject. Applicants nearing completion of their PhD in the stated subject area will also be considered.
