Opportunity for researchers.

Currently two researchers and post-doc positions are available in a new research center for Ocean Drilling Science (ODS) of JAMSTEC, a national research institute of marine and earth sciences of Japan.

The successful candidates for the researcher positions may have experience in geophysics / geophysical logging. The period of employment starts from 1 April 2015 until 31 March 2020 (5-year term) and there is a possibility to change the contract to an unlimited one after evaluation. Two URLs are attached below for details.

The post-doc positions are for three years and the successful candidates will receive a research grant that will enable them to work independently on a research topic of their choice and we welcome anyone who have interests on scientific drilling. For details, visit the website below.

Position 1: Borehole Informatics Group

A research position in the integration of seismic, geophysical logging, and core sample data to develop a detailed understanding of the dynamic behavior, three-dimensional geometry, and characteristics of sub-seafloor geology. The successful candidate, who should have a strong background in exploration geophysics, especially seismic data processing, will lead research and development by combining seismic and logging data, becoming involved in IODP activity, and contributing to breakthroughs in the integration of core-log-seismic data.

Position 2: Plate Boundary Drilling Research Group

This position is to research on plate subduction and fault activity at convergent margins and to construct new views of the interrelationships of a variety of phenomena related to various types of earthquakes and tsunami generation. The successful candidate will lead research and development using geophysical logging data and/or other techniques and will contribute to breakthroughs in the understanding of various natural phenomena related to plate subduction and fault activity at active plate margins.
