Georgia State University and Georgia Institute of Technology seek one or more postdoctoral researchers to work on a collaborative NSF project under the direction of Professor WenZhan Song and Professor Yao Xie. The goal of the project is to create a real-time seismic imaging system with sensor networks, with research focusing on developing decentralized inversion computing algorithms, collaborative signal processing and situation-aware networking technology. In the later phase of the project, the system will be tested with real experiments and field deployment in the Yellowstone National Park or other volcanoes/ geothermal reservoirs.
Funding is available for up to four years and the salary is competitive. The position can be named as a research assistant professor position 1-year later.
The location for this position is in City of Atlanta, which provides both extraordinarily collaborative and diversified scholarly and industrial opportunities, as well as beautiful and cosmopolitan living environment.
