Funded PhD Scholarship

Near-Real-Time Models of Earthquake-Related Flood Hazard

Research Goal: To develop, test, and validate near-real-time models of surface hydrological changes following large earthquakes.

Overview: This funded PhD scholarship will integrate remote sensing, structural geology, geomorphology, and surface hydrology to develop near-real-time forecasts of coseismic flood hazard. This project is a part of the GNS-led programme Rapid Characterisation of Earthquakes and Tsunami: Fewer deaths and faster recovery. The candidate will be based at the School of Earth and Environment at University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Application Details:  The successful candidate will have a broad, quantitative background in geoscience and an interest in developing tools that contribute to seismic resilience. An MSc in Geology, Engineering Geology, or Physical Geography; or BSc with relevant research and/or work experience is required. Other fields may be considered for exceptional candidates. Some experience with one or more programming languages is preferred. The successful candidate will be awarded a fully-funded 3-year PhD scholarship, which includes University fees and stipend, and join the vibrant Active Tectonics and Disaster Risk Resilience groups at UC. We are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive work environment. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups in the geosciences are encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a 1-page cover letter and CV to before 15 July 2022.
