of Geodesy at the Technical University of Denmark.
You will be starting a three-year PhD studentship with a research focus on glaciology on 1 August 2019. You will be part of a research team researching Ilulissat Glacier using numerical modelling and remote sensing approaches.
You can learn more about the project “Unravelling the response time-scales of Greenland’s most critical glacier” at the
DFF homepage. You will participate in fieldwork at of Ilulissat Glacier to collect in situ measurements. Your PhD advisor will be Professor
Shfaqat Abbas Khan at the Department of Geodesy at DTU, and your research supervisor will be Dr. William Colgan at the Department of Glaciology and Climate at GEUS. This PhD studentship is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.
You should have a master’s degree awarded within geosciences or engineering. You should have experience with either remote sensing (ideally global positioning system) or numerical modelling (ideally continuum mechanics
simulations), as well as expertise in scientific computing or the analysis of large datasets. Previous work in glaciology is an asset, but not required. Proficiency in both written and spoken English is essential. Non-Danish applicants must be willing to attend
Danish courses within the first year of employment.
