Hi Chris,



I saw your advert (in the Tectonics and structural geology forum) for  
a post-doc position on basin-scale salt tectonics and growth of salt- 
related normal faults and impacts on sedimentary patterns.



I have one student who is currently finishing his Ph.D. (defence  
planned early July), who may fit the job requirements. His name is  
Nicolas Sellier and he will soon get in touch with you. He is  
currently filling the forms of the Imperial College for that position.



His Ph.D. work focused on looking experimentally at how the  
progressive turbidity sediments could trigger movement of salt and its  
overlying overburden. For that, he designed a completely new kind of  
apparatus in which analogues of turbid currents, comprising a fine- 
grained sediment fraction (in his case, water with fine silica or PVC  
fraction in suspension), progressively loaded and mobilized the  
substrate. This approach combines both the regular stratigraphic  
modelling approaches (à la Chris Paola in Minneapolis or George Posma  
in Utrecht) and the other classic approach of tectonic physical  
modelling (too many names to quote here).

He results are quite innovative.

Nicolas also has great abilities at interpreting seismic data related  
to salt tectonics, abilities that, you are aware of that, are quite  
rare outside of the Oil and Gas Industry. I think that he could be a  
great candidate for this post. I have talked to him about the  
practical sides of such a position (he and his partner have a newly  
born child) and there does not seem to be any significant hindrance,  
since Lille is only a bit more than two hours away from London Saint- 
Pancras.



Nicolas has yet to translate his CV in English. Me, I the meantime, am  
leaving for 8 days to the field, coaching some undergrads in the Jura,  
where I’ll have access to the neither internet nor my mails. Maybe  
Nicolas will email you his CV while I’ll be off the 21st-century  
technological world, or he’ll wait until I am back (on the 26th) to  
send you a revised version.



In any case, this is an application that you should carefully  
consider. He is well versed in salt tectonics, unlike many other  
applicants. On the publishing side, his dossier is a bit weak but will  
improve drastically soon. This is largely my fault for lack of time, I  
did not get the time to add my participation to what he has written  
months and months ago. But this will be taken care of soon. I have no  
doubts that, provided with a great seismic data set Nicolas, he will b  
able to complete and write interesting and innovative interpretative  
work in no time.



Best regards,



Bruno



PS: I am sending a CC of this message to Nicolas so that you have his  
e-mail address.
