With new beginnings also come endings, and we'd like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the huge contribution our outgoing AF8 Science Lead Associate Professor Caroline Orchiston (University of Otago) has made to the programme and our collective kaupapa over the past 8 years! A big thank you, Caroline, for your science leadership, critical contributions to the programme and support of our all our partners, including our communities. And, while this marks an end of your formal role with the programme, we are grateful to know that your support of AF8 will continue.
The AF8 Programme is seeking a suitably qualified scientist to champion Alpine Fault science in support of programme goals and objectives.
This individual will be actively undertaking research and supervision related to the Alpine Fault or the wider earthquake hazard risk and resilience context. They will be highly engaged in the research field, and have the ability to act as a connector across the research-policy-practice interface. They will have the ability to translate complex Alpine Fault hazard, risk and resilience science in ways that are engaging for practitioners, community, iwi and policy-makers. They will champion AF8, and endeavour to support it through alignment with their research programmes and student research projects.
