The successful candidate will have the opportunity to interact with several other post-doctoral researchers (as well multiple PhD students) in the team developing Deep Learning algorithms on related topics (in particular in the framework of the ERC project EARLI).

    The research will be done in collaboration with Quentin Bletery, Jean-Paul Ampuero, Françoise Courboulex, Tony Monfret, Éric Calais, principal investigator of the OSMOSE ANR project.

    OSMOSE is a pioneer project in participative seismology, aiming at multiplying seismic instruments hosted by citizens in Haiti (https: // projects/374...). This approach has a strong potential from a sociological point of view but also for the understanding of seismological processes (https: // www.

    The agent's employer will be IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement), a French public research institution. IRD supports an original model of equitable scientific partnership and interdisciplinary, citizen, sustainability science committed to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
