Position: PhD position - Next-Generation Physics-based earthquake forecasts
British Geological Survey
, Keyworth , Nottinghamshire United Kingdom
Duties: In this project, you will develop earthquake forecast models in large scale based on physics-based simulations and/or AI-based earthquake forecasts, both aiming to improve our process-based understanding of earthquake triggering. Those large-scale processes may inform us about future experiments in the lab motivating further rock physics research. The framework will generate, evaluate, optimize and discriminate earthquake forecasts based on robust statistical modelling and validation
Requirements: A completed research-oriented university degree, such as a Master's degree or BSc Hons, in a relevant field (e.g. Geophysics, Physics ); An outstanding academic track record; A good command of English, both verbal and written; Knowledge of patterns of crustal deformation and experience in earthquake catalog analysis are considered a plus; Knowledge of computer programming languages, such as Python, and other essential skills towards machine-learning model development (e.g. Tensorflow, ELK) will be considered a plus
