PostDoc Position: Advanced Simulation of Coupled Earthquake & Tsunami Events
The project objectives are to conduct realistic tsunamigenic earthquake scenario simulations to investigate the impact of earthquake source dynamics on tsunami generation and propagation. To this end the incorporation of realistic 3D subduction zone geometries, methodological optimization and extension of SeisSol as well as validation case studies will be conducted. A strong interest in numerical methods, seismic wave and tsunami propagation and motivation to work in a high-performance computing context are required. Previous experience in aforementioned fields is highly advantageous. [more]
