Again, several job offers were spread during the last week, and here they are:
The paleoseismicity.org directory is a list of the people who research and work in paleoseismology worldwide.
works at the Neotectonics and Natural Hazards Group, RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He likes the Mediterranean and uses geophysics to search for ancient earthquakes.See all posts by Christoph Grützner
is a young geologist working on neotectonics and geophysics in arid environments. He is a research staff member of the Neotectonics and Natural Hazards group, RWTH Aachen University.See all posts by Andreas Rudersdorf
is a Senior Lecturer in the Mineralogy-Geology Lab of the Agricultural University of Athens, member of the Aon Benfield-UCL Hazard Research Centre and Hons Research Fellow at the Dept of Earth Sciences at University College London (UCL).See all posts by Ioannis Papanikolaou
has no clue about paleoseimics or geology in general. He is just a freenlancing webdesigner from Aachen, Germany who helped to develop this website.See all posts by Martin Schmidt
Senior seismologist at INGV (Rome), works on earthquake deformation models. Lecturer of seismology and seismic hazard, he believes that we do not understand yet the risk associated to large earthquakes.See all posts by Salvatore Barba
Paleoseismicity.org is a page dedicated to scientists and everyone else interested in paleoseismology, archeoseismology, neotectonics, earthquake archeology, earthquake engineering and related topics. Different authors irregularly write about recent papers, field work, problems, conferences or just interesting things that they come across. We intend to provide a platform for discussion and scientific exchange. Interested in joining as an author? Please contact us!
