Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position to join the ERC project CRUSLID based at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France. The project CRUSLID started on October 1st 2021; it aims at determining the present-day nature and structure of the crusts and the physical and geological processes leading to crust formation and evolution on stagnant-lid planets. The aim of the post-doc is to investigate the link between observed seismicity on terrestrial bodies and the build-up of stress through lithosphere cooling using thermal evolution models and the analysis of seismicity catalogs on Mars and the Moon. Applicants should hold a PhD degree preferably in geodynamics and have a solid background in continuum mechanics, elasticity, fluid dynamics, and numerical resolution of partial differential equations, as well as demonstrable scientific initiative. The position is for two years. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, short research statement, graduate transcript and contact information for three references to Chloé Michaut ( The position is open until filled.
