    Postdoctoral Researcher- Structural Geology/Geophysics

    \n

    The Geology Department at Western Washington University invites applications for a 2-year (24 month) Postdoctoral Research position. The successful applicant will join a larger multidisciplinary working group generating a Community Fault Model (CFM) for Cascadia as a part of the new Cascadia Region Earthquake Science Center (CRESCENT), via a grant-supported community project focused on earthquake hazards in the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, the postdoc will play a central role developing a comprehensive topological and multi-earthquake cycle activity model of crustal faults in the upper plate of the Cascadia subduction system. The topological model will combine both on and offshore fault systems in the seismogenic crust and the subducting Juan de Fuca plate interface. The CFM will be used to characterize upper plate fault hazards, to evaluate fault interaction, and to understand the contribution of splay faults to deformation in the accretionary prism offshore. Creating the CFM will involve synthesizing and compiling fault system information from existing fault topological datasets with information about fault structure from marine and terrestrial seismic reflection and other geophysical data sets and paleoseismic records. The successful applicant will work in close collaboration with supervisors at Western Washington University (Drs. Emily Roland and Colin Amos), other researchers involved in a working group focused on the CFM and Cascadia earthquake hazards, as well as researchers from the US Geological Survey, and other organizations. Position salary is $60,000. Salary increases will be provided in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement. Position will also receive support for travel to workshops and conferences.
