In order to be eligible for the fellowship, an applicant must -

  • Hold a Master degree or equivalent in Geophysics with experience on topics such as -
    • Rock physics
    • Mineral physics
    • Atomic scale processes
    • Ab initio simulations
  • Have a strong background and interest in-
    • Numerical modelling
    • Laboratory experiments
    • Data analysis using Matlab or Python programming
    • Demonstrating an ability to work independently and in a structured manner. In addition, the applicant must have the capability of cross-disciplinary collaboration. 
    • Teaching geomechanics, rock physics, mineral physics, earthquake physics.

Note: Preference will be given to candidates with multidisciplinary experience, including teaching experience, data analysis and modelling.
