PhD in Seismology and Geodynamics at ETH Zurich, Switzerland

*mumpung sedang ramai gempa bumi, nampaknya ilmu ini kian laku...*

The Geophysics Institute at ETH-Zurich invites applications for two Ph.D. student positions in seismology and geodynamics. The successful candidates will study regional-scale seismic tomography, including its implications for geodynamics, applied to Europe and the mediterranean basin. This research project emphasizes application of innovative techniques in seismology, including finite-frequency (”banana-doughnut” ) tomography, and interferometric analysis of seismic ambient noise. Advisors will be Prof. Eduard Kissling and Dr. Lapo Boschi, in collaboration with Dr. Alberto Michelini (INGV Roma, Italy).

Our institute is a diverse environment emphasizing multidisciplinary interactions. A wide variety of graduate level courses in the Earth Sciences are oered. Please visit the Seismology and Geodynamics web page, at or contact Dr. L. Boschi larryboschi[at] for further information.

Complete applications must include statement of personal interests, curriculum vitae and names and addresses of two references, and should be sent to Dr. L. Boschi (paper form accepted, electronic form preferred). We will start reviewing applications at the end of August, and plan to interview candidates before the end of October, 2007.

Education requirements:
Completion of undergraduate studies in physical/mathematical sciences, computer sciences, or earth sciences.

ETH is an equal-opportunity and nondiscriminating employer.
