5. Seismicity Research Scientist (Energy Geosciences)

Position Summary:

Berkeley Lab’s Energy Geosciences Division has an opening for a Seismicity Research Scientist. You will lead original and independent research on energy-related induced seismicity to support various activities within our carbon storage, fossil fuel and geothermal energy programs. The Research Scientist will have in-depth skills and experience in (1) quantitative and observational earthquake seismology and (2) in physics-based and empirical modeling of earthquake occurrence that can be applied to assessing hazard from induced seismicity. A working knowledge of geomechanics and probabilistic seismic hazard analysis will be an advantage. This position will work with a diverse technical team both within LBNL and at other national laboratories. This position will be filled at the Career-Track or Career level, dependent on experience.

What You Will Do:

? In collaboration with other LBNL scientists, conduct original and independent research into simulation-based and empirical time- and space-dependent probabilistic hazard and risk analysis methods for earthquakes induced by fluid injection.

? Analyze and model seismicity data to detect and characterize induced earthquakes and develop empirical occurrence models, to calibrate earthquake simulations, and to characterize reservoir processes.

? Develop proposals and obtain funding for research projects in seismology and induced seismicity.

? Develop programmatic goals for induced seismicity hazard and risk assessment and reservoir characterization.

? Present research at meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals.

? Work as part of a scientific team and interact with seismologists, geomechanics researchers and hydrogeologists to design and implement research projects.

? Collaborate with researchers in other national labs, government, academia and industry.

Additional Responsibilities as needed:

? Carry out data inversions to locate earthquakes and to determine velocity and Q structures and earthquake source mechanisms for reservoir characterization.

? Assist in preparing reports and giving presentations and briefings as needed in support of Energy Geosciences Division programs.

What Is Required:

? PhD or equivalent experience in seismology, geophysics, or a related engineering field.

? Demonstrated creativity, ability, and knowledge in earthquake source physics and simulation.

? Experience in quantitative and observational earthquake seismology and in physics-based and empirical modeling of earthquake occurrence.

? Ability to organize, process and analyze large seismicity and waveform data sets.

? Ability to program in C, C++, FORTRAN, Python or Java languages and familiarity with UNIX/LINUX computer systems.

? Experience in proposal writing, project development and management.

? Ability to interact effectively with a team of interdisciplinary scientists having different backgrounds.

? Excellent communication skills.
