Research Fellow in Geodynamics

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in geodynamics and geodynamic modelling? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading research intensive universities?

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the Institute for Geophysics and Tectonics at the University of Leeds. This role is focused on the geodynamics of subduction, and related processes. The Research Fellow will work with Dr Tim Craig and his research group, and will work on the development and application of numerical geodynamic models focused on aspects of the subduction process. There may also be scope to include elements of observational seismology. A number of subject areas are available for study, depending on the Fellows' interests and skill: (a) processes controlling the seismicity within subducting slabs, (b) processes controlling the thermo- rheological evolution of subducting slabs, (c) processes controlling the occurrence of seismicity in the Outer Rise, and (d) processes controlling the interaction between earthquakes.

We are looking for enthusiastic and numerate candidates with experience in geodynamic research. Candidates will have a PhD (or be close to completing one) in an appropriate aspect of solid-Earth geophysics. Ideal candidates will have experience in geodynamics and/or numerical modelling in the Earth Sciences.

What we offer in return

  • 26 days holiday plus approx.16 Bank Holidays/days that the University is closed by custom (including Christmas) – That's 42 days a year!
  • Generous pension scheme plus life assurance– the University contributes 14.5% of salary
  • Health and Wellbeing: Discounted staff membership options at The Edge, our state-of-the-art Campus gym, with a pool, sauna, climbing wall, cycle circuit, and sports halls.
  • Personal Development: Access to courses run by our Organisational Development & Professional Learning team.
  • Access to on-site childcare, shopping discounts and travel schemes are also available.
  • And much more!

    If you are looking for a role furthering our understanding of subduction and the associated geophysical processes, combining geodynamics and observational seismology, apply today.
