JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

The Penn State Ultrasonics Lab (PennSUL) and Rock Mechanics Lab is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with multi-disciplinary interests and experience in ultrasonics, mechanics-based modelling and laboratory rock deformation/permeability testing.

The project is led by Parisa Shokouhi (parisa@psu.edu ), Jacques Rivière (riviere@psu.edu ), Chris Marone (marone@psu.edu ) and Derek Elsworth (elsworth@psu.edu ). The successful candidate will work with graduate students and co-lead research activities focused on illuminating the mechanisms that relate ultrasonic, hydraulic and frictional properties of fractured rocks (see Shokouhi et al. Geophysical Research Letters 2020 https://doi.org/10.1029/2019GL083557 ). We encourage applications from researchers with backgrounds in geomechanics, mechanics-based modelling, elastic wave mechanics, acoustics and geophysics. Experience in experimental design and execution is required.

A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required by the date of hire. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The Pennsylvania State University takes an active role in building a talented, inclusive, and culturally diverse workforce.
