CENTER FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND HIGHER EDUCATION OF
ENSENADA, BAJA CALIFORNIA (CICESE)
Tenure-track position in Seismology
CICESE is a research center funded by the Mexican Federal government through
the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT). Its Earth Science
Division includes research areas related to applied geophysics, geology and
seismology. The Department of Seismology invites applications for one tenure-track
position.


REQUIREMENTS

a) Academic qualifications
 PhD in Earth Sciences or equivalent.
b) Profile
 We are seeking a candidate for a research position with experience in any of
the areas related to the research lines of the Department of Seismology,
which include
o Seismotectonics: seismicity, seismic source, attenuation,
computational seismology, and volcanic seismology.
o Crustal deformation: geodesy and seismicity in Baja California,
deformation and induced seismicity by anthropogenic activity.
o Seismic hazard and risk.
o Engineering seismology: site response, microzonation, and strong
ground motion analysis.
o Rock physics: physics of porous media, and propagation of seismic
waves in complex media.
 It is desirable for the candidate to have proficiency in management of large
seismological and geodetic databases or expertise in the study of relation of
microstructure and physical properties of rocks, including the sensitivity to
pressure and temperature conditions.
c) Capacities
 The successful candidate must have experience in research in one or more
of the research lines of the Department of Seismology. This experience must
be demonstrated thorough recent papers, not older than 5 years, and
published in high-impact international journals.
