The potential research projects center around investigating the multi-scale structure of the Earth’s mantle and outer core with 3D wave simulations and full-waveform inversion including, but not limited to,

– big and sparse data problems (i.e., demonstration and implementation of machine learning algorithms, assimilating emerging data in full-waveform inversion),

– imaging challenges (i.e., (an)elastic full-waveform inversion, assessment of the robustness of imaging techniques and tomographic models, uncertainty quantification),

– visualization of full-waveform inversion models in virtual reality environments and planetariums as part of the collaboration with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

 

The required qualifications are;

– BSc or MSc in (geo)physics, applied math, and computer sciences, or other related departments,

– strong math and physics background, and interest in geosciences,

– self-motivation and enthusiasm for scientific research.

 

The application deadline for graduate school is January 1, 2021. Applications must be done through the University website:
