The at ETH Zurich (SED) is searching for a Junior Network Seismologist to join the project team for induced seismicity monitoring and expert advice. The successful candidate will help the team to support cantonal authorities in developing monitoring networks and mitigation strategies for induced seismicity in deep geothermal projects in Switzerland.
Deep geothermal energy is foreseen in the to be an essential component of Switzerland's future energy portfolio. To successfully exploit deep geothermal energy, adequate risk governance of induced seismicity is critically important for establishing safe and economically viable projects. Achieving this goal, primarily involves providing state-of-the-art seismological advice for decision-making to cantonal authorities, and enabling an adequate, independent, and transparent seismic monitoring for deep geothermal projects. The GEOBEST2020+ project, funded by the (SFOE), enables the SED to support cantonal authorities in handling issues related to induced seismicity during all development phases of a deep geothermal project (i.e., preliminary investigation, permitting, construction, and operation phase).
The primary responsibilities of the successful candidate are to:
The position is initially for two years, with the possibility of an extension. The candidate will work in a highly collaborative environment, with close links to authorities and industry partners. She/He may also join the team that is routinely monitoring Swiss seismicity. The working language at the SED is English, though we are specifically searching for candidates that are also fluent in French. We will positively regard basic knowledge of German and Italian.
Candidates should have a Master's degree or Ph.D. in geophysics or a related field, with a strong focus on seismology and documented experience on relevant subjects that may include: earthquake location, source parameter inversion, waveform analysis, software development for seismic networks, and data mining. A solid background in programming, preferably in Python, is required. Experience or familiarity with the SeisComP3 monitoring system is not necessary but would be of advantage.
We look forward to receiving online applications, including a CV, a list of publications, and a letter of motivation in PDF format, by June 10, 2020. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
The observation of earthquakes, and the study of their causes and impacts, are the core focus of the research activities of the Professorship for Seismology and the Swiss Seismological Service at ETH Zurich.
