Research Scientist I (Porous Media)
The University of Mississippi's National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) is seeking a Research Scientist to work with scientists and other NCPA staff to conduct research in near surface soils involved in seismic data processing of large datasets and inversion, especially multichannel 3D seismic volumes using commercially available software (i.e. Seismic for Unix, Promax, Vista, or similar). The ideal candidate will be highly motivated and overall independent and will be expected to autonomously carry out the research and publish the results in peer reviewed journals.
Job Responsibilities (examples of work performed and essential functions) - Research Scientist I
Work with scientists and other NCPA staff to conduct field experiments in near surface geomaterials when subjected to mechanical deformations, acoustic/seismic measurements of spatial and temporal changes in agricultural soils and earthen dams, conducting multi-geophysical surveys, data processing and interpretation of geophysical attributes. The candidate will be required to process large seismic datasets, and provide interpretations. The candidate will be expected to publish results in peer reviewed journals and present results to a diverse scientific audience. The candidate will be working closely with MS and PhD students in Physics, Geophysics, Civil and Geological Engineering.
Minimum Qualifications (education and experience) - Research Scientist I
Ph.D. in Physics, Geophysics, Civil or Geological Engineering is required. Minimum two years of Postdoctoral experience. Candidate should be experienced in the areas of physics of geomaterials and near surface geophysical methods, and should have a proven knowledge of seismic data processing of large datasets and inversion, especially multichannel 3D seismic volumes using commercially available software (i.e. Seismic for Unix, Promax, Vista, or similar). Proficiency in code computing and scientific programming (i.e. Phyton, Perl, C++, Matlab or similar) and ability to successfully present research to a diverse audience is required. Knowledge of laboratory measurements on soils would be an asset.
