PhD Candidate, Fault Damage Zone Controls on Coseismic Landslides, University of Canterbury

Research Goal: To investigate the role of fault structure, coseismic strain, and fault damage zone properties on the initiation of slope failures.

Overview: Forecasts of coseismic landslide hazard are inhibited, in part, by a lack of resolution in outcrop- to regional-scale rock strength variability. Whereas lithologic differences are relatively straightforward to map and parameterise, the rock mass properties of fault damage zones are more challenging, and their characterisation represents a key opportunity to improve existing landslide hazard models. This PhD research aims to integrate structural geology, remote sensing, geomechanics, and geophysics to characterise fault damage zones and landslides in the northeastern Southern Alps of New Zealand. The successful candidate will work with fault and landslide datasets from the 2016 MW 7.8 Kaikōura, New Zealand earthquake, as well as collect new field data to address the objectives below.

Objectives:
(1) Characterise how metre- to kilometre-scale tectonic strains contributed to slope failure during the 2016 Kaikōura, New Zealand earthquake, using a combination of remote sensing and field data
(2) Quantify the extent and physical properties of fault damage zones in areas of high landslide density, using shallow geophysics and laboratory testing
(3) Determine whether parameters related to (1) and (2) above control paleo-landslide distributions along active faults, using quantitative geomorphology

Application Details: The successful candidate will have a MSc in Geology, Engineering Geology, or a related field; or BSc Hons. with relevant research or work experience. We can offer the successful candidate a fully-funded PhD scholarship, including University fees and living allowance. The candidate, if successful, would be enrolled at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, and work in close collaboration with GNS Science. The candidate would be expected to spend time in both Wellington and Christchurch, two of New Zealand’s more interesting cities.

If interested, please send timothy.stahl@canterbury.ac.nz your CV before the 15 July 2019.

PhD Opportunity in Active Tectonics and Remote Sensing, University of Canterbury

One fully-funded PhD scholarship in active tectonics and remote sensing is available through a joint research initiative with Dr. Tim Stahl at the University of Canterbury and Dr. Kate Clark at the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS). The successful applicant will join a research team utilising novel photogrammetric datasets and techniques, alongside field work, to research historical earthquake fault ruptures in a range of tectonic environments in New Zealand. Research topics include (1) developing techniques for processing historical aerial photographs into digital elevation data; (2) analysis of pre- and post-earthquake data for the purpose of assessing fault geometries, connectivity and kinematics; (3) modelling multi-fault ruptures using geologic and remotely sensed validation datasets, and exploring the implications of this research for seismic hazard analysis.

The ideal candidate will have strengths in active tectonics, paleoseismology, and/or geomorphology, and will have worked with remote sensing data. Field experience in active tectonics/geomorphology would be beneficial and experience in computational science, programming &/or numerical modelling is required. Masters degree or BS/BSc degree with significant research and work experience required. The PhD position will be based in Christchurch, New Zealand, at the University of Canterbury. There will be opportunities to undertake research visits to GNS Science, Lower Hutt. Applications will be accepted until 15 July 2019 or until the position is filled. Please email timothy.stahl@canterbury.ac.nz with your CV and cover letter. Candidates from under-represented and diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
