At DIG we are always looking for highly motivated individuals to join on team as Ph.D. candidates, Postdoctoral fellows, or Visiting Researchers with expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Computational geophysics
  • Inverse problems
  • Seismic imaging and parameter inversion
  • Seismic processing
  • Machine learning
  • High-performance computing
  • Scientific software development

Here are some of the research topics that you will be able to contribute to:

  • Geophysical target-oriented imaging and model parameter inversion
  • Applications of deep learning to physics-driven inverse problems
  • Large-scale inverse problems using HPC hardware

If you find any of these topics exciting and would like to participate in the development of these new theories and algorithms, send us an email!

By joining our group, you will be part of a vibrant community of computational and experimental geoscientists in the Physical Science and Engineering division. As part of your Ph.D. programme you will get the opportunity to take classes from world-renowned professors, and you will have access to Shaheen II, one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.

Through my wide network of academic and industry connections, you will also be able to spend some of your time in other institutions and/or take on summer interships in other parts of the world. Finally, you will learn a great deal of scientific software development and contribute to the development of open-source tools such PyLops, and create new ones. Be prepared to use Python, C/C++, and CUDA - but do not be discouraged to apply if you are not familar with them, yet!
