The Department of Earth Sciences at the University of California,
Riverside, invites applications for a faculty position in Structural
Seismology at the Assistant Professor level, available July 1, 2015.

We seek a seismologist who conducts research into the shallow
structure of the Earth. We invite applications from researchers who
focus on understanding the seismic structure of the Earth on local,
crustal and/or lithospheric scales, using techniques including but not
limited to reflection and/or refraction seismology, receiver
functions, shear-wave splitting, travel time and/or ambient noise
tomography. We are particularly interested in candidates who use these
techniques to illuminate fault structures. The successful candidate
will be expected to develop a research program complementary to our
strengths in theoretical/numerical modeling of earthquakes and fault
systems, space geodetic studies of crustal deformation, neotectonics,
observational seismology, and experimental and theoretical
investigations of rheological properties as they pertain to

A successful candidate must have a strong commitment to excellence in
both research and teaching. Teaching responsibilities will include
undergraduate and graduate courses in or related to the area of

A Ph.D. in a relevant field and a proven ability to conduct innovative
