Posted on behalf of Eoghan Holohan

Applications are invited for a 1-year Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 position within UCD School of Earth Sciences, in Dublin, Ireland. The successful candidate will use Interferometry of Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) to detect coastal ground motions and slope instabilities at a set of urban and rural study areas on the European Atlantic coast (Lisbon, Madeira, Causeway Coast, Cliffs of Moher, Brittany). The project forms part of the EU-funded Platform for Atlantic Geohazards Risk Management (AGEO) initiative, which is a consortium of institutes in Portugal, Spain, France, Ireland and the UK aiming to establish several pilot citizen science observatories for monitoring of coastal geohazards.

UCD hosts Ireland’s largest academic geosciences, as well as the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG), a centre of research excellence funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The successful candidate will join a growing research group in the broad area of land subsidence and geohazards.
