The British Geological Survey (BGS) is one of the world's leading and forward thinking geological science institutes with a focus on both public good science for government and geoscientific research to understand earth and environmental processes.  BGS has a long track record of studies of seismic hazard around the world and is recognised internationally as an authority on seismic hazard methodology and associated software development, and has pioneered developments in stochastic modelling (Monte Carlo simulation) for probabilistic seismic hazard, and the use of source model validation techniques.

We are seeking an innovative and dynamic scientist with good mathematical skills to join our Earthquake Seismology Team and pursue a programme of research in seismic hazard. Areas of interest include the development of methods for probabilistic seismic hazard, modelling strong ground motions, statistical seismology, modelling stress transfer between faults and induced seismicity. You will also play a key role in commercial seismic hazard work for engineering projects, the insurance sector and government, and support the Team's wider research interests in earthquake seismology. The varied nature of the work will include opportunities to present that work at international conferences and exhibitions and deal with the media.

You should have a PhD in physical/mathematical sciences or engineering with a record of research in seismic hazard or a related area. You should also have good general understanding of earthquake seismology. You should possess good programming skills, with competence in at least one programming language. In addition, you must possess excellent communication skills, both oral and written, ideally with a proven record of publishing your research and the ability to present it to an expert audience. The post involves team working, therefore you should be able to work effectively with others and have good time management skills.

Depending on qualifications and experience, starting salary for the role will be 26,715 per annum to 37,875 per annum (pay award pending).  For a salary above 31,330 per annum you would need to have research experience in seismic hazard/ground motion modelling, practical experience of seismic hazard assessment and able to develop and lead new work in your particular field of expertise.

Working hours will be 37 per week excluding lunch breaks.  A generous benefits package is also offered, including a company pension scheme, childcare voucher scheme, 30 days annual leave plus 10.5 days public and privilege holidays.

This is advertised as a full time post but we will consider applications from those who require more flexible arrangements.

If you are interested in this role and want to be responsible for solving complex scientific and business problems under own initiative, being exposed to wide range of technologies and have the opportunity to contribute to scientific output of organisation together with the possibility of representing the organisation at international scientific conferences then please visit RCUK Shared Services Centre job board at http://www.topcareer.jobs/ and submit your up-to-date C.V. and covering letter, which clearly outlines why you are applying for this post and how you meet the criteria described in this advertisement.   Applicants who would like to receive this advert in an alternative format (e.g. large print, Braille, audio or hard copy), or who are unable to apply online should contact us by telephone on 01793 867003, Please quote reference number IRC175033.
Closing date for receipt of application forms is 25 January 2015.

The Natural Environment Research Council is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.  People with disabilities and those from ethnic minorities are currently under-represented and their applications are particularly welcome.  The British Geological Survey is an Investors in People organization and has achieved Bronze status for Athena Swan - a scheme that recognizes excellence in women's employment in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in UK higher education.   There is a guaranteed Interview Scheme for suitable candidates with disabilities.
