The Position
This position is funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Optical Microcombs for Breakthrough Science, which explores societal impacts of optical frequency combs through advances in physics, materials science, and nanofabrication.

This cutting-edge technology bridges the gap between traditional seismic imaging and geological samples, offering a wide range of applications.

The Postdoctoral Fellow/ Research Fellow will work on the deployment, acquisition, analysis and interpretation of large DAS datasets and development of technical advances using optical frequency microcombs.  The goal is to expand the capability of our strong field-based seismic imaging research utilising DAS with new technology innovations through the ARC Centre of Excellence COMBS, and therefore understanding of the Earth’s structure and evolution.

The Postdoctoral Fellow/ Research Fellow will be a member of Research School of Earth Sciences (RSES).

We operate iconic and state-of-the art instrumentation supported by highly trained professional staff, offering an unrivalled world-class research environment.

Our cutting-edge research provides an unparalleled environment for high-quality research training of our graduate students. Our people and facilities are also the foundation for our vision to deliver world-class research-led undergraduate teaching in the Earth Sciences. We are committed to offering a nurturing environment for the School’s early career researchers. Our culture is one of inclusivity and respect and we encourage everyone to embrace these values as expressed in our culture statement.

The Person
To excel in this role you will have a strong track record of independent research in the field of Earth sciences, seismology, computational geophysics, physics or a related area and ability to articulate and prosecute innovate research. Your ability to lead by example, coupled with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, will enable you to foster respectful and productive working relationships with staff, students and colleagues at all levels within RSES in line with the RSES Culture Statement.
