No. 195/01/2010/MPGO-EPR/Estt Dated: 28.09.2010

Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology is a premier Earth Science Institution engaged in advance level of research in all aspects of geology and geodynamics of the Himalaya. The Institute has established a state-of-the-art Multi-Parametric Geophysical Observatory (MPGO) at Ghuttu, New Tehri, Uttarakhand (~150 km from Dehradun) for earthquake precursory research in an integrated manner. The MPGO is equipped with high precision superconducting gravimeter, magnetometers, magnetotelluric, radon, electromagnetic emission and ground water level monitoring systems along with a network of seismometers and global positioning system (GPS). Towards the operation of the MPGO and multidisciplinary research in the emerging area of earthquake precursors, the Director, WIHG invites applications for the under mentioned purely temporary tenured positions in the following project sponsored by Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India.
