numerical or analogue modeling. Candidates with an interest in
understanding continental evolution in deep geologic time are
particularly encouraged to apply.

observationally based research program using geophysical methods (e.g.
seismology, geodesy, or potential fields) to study the Earth at the
crustal or continental scale. We are particularly interested in those

hazards, such as earthquakes, volcanism, and associated hazards, or
environmental change to the hydrosphere or cryosphere.
