Job Description:

The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a research scientist in geophysics as applied to industrial or societal problems. Under the direction of the Department Chair, the research scientist will build a program that is well-integrated with our basic science expertise in earthquakes, seismology and related disciplines. We are particularly interested in candidates who can expand our impact in geohazards. Potential fields of interest include rock mechanics and/or new geophysical observation methods.
The successful candidate should demonstrate broad applicability and a potential for external collaborations and/or industry sponsorship. Scientists in the Professional Research title series are individuals with mature research portfolios who normally serve as principal investigators on grants and develop a full research program. The position is funded at 50% through university funds and is envisioned as a career position with regular merit and promotion reviews (for more information on the academic review process, please refer to .
The current geophysics group at UC Santa Cruz includes expertise in earthquake mechanics, seismology, structural geology, and geodynamics. The group collaborates with the researchers working on hazards at the USGS Coastal Science Center and seeks to foster further connections there. The group also includes significant connections to community initiatives such as Subduction Zone in Four Dimensions (SZ4D) and Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) that can be strategically complemented by the successful candidate.
The research scientist will be expected to develop their own research program and work collaboratively with existing department members addressing Earth hazards. Science that is complementary to current efforts in the department and community initiatives such as SCEC and SZ4D is of particular interest. Engagement with the active tectonics efforts in the USGS Coastal Center in Santa Cruz is also encouraged.
Applicants with expertise in writing successful grant proposals, excellent interpersonal skills for cultivating collaborations, exceptional communication skills, and strong presentation skills, and/or innovative vision for collaborations are strongly encouraged to apply.
