From: WHITEHOUSE, PIPPA L. Sent: 22 July 2019 09:29 Subject: 3 year PDRA position in Glacial Isostatic Adjustment
Please see below for an advert relating to a 3-year Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA)
position in numerical modelling of Earth deformation in response to surface mass (ice sheet) change. The post will be held at Durham University, UK, and the closing date is midday, Monday 12th August.
The successful applicant will contribute to a project led
by Dr Pippa Whitehouse that seeks to constrain West Antarctic mantle viscosity via the analysis and modelling of precise GPS measurements of Earth’s response to surface mass balance anomalies. New crustal motion constraints
from an extensive Antarctic GPS network will provide the means to achieve this aim. The post will require experience in numerical modelling of physical processes, and a working knowledge
of ice sheet and solid Earth dynamics will be beneficial.
This project is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). UK
project partners are Newcastle University and the British Antarctic Survey; overseas partners are the University of Tasmania, Utrecht University, and the NSF-funded POLENET project. The successful applicant will join the Ice Sheets and Sea Level research
group in the Geography Department of Durham University (https://www.dur.ac.uk/geography/icesheetsandsealevel/)
For informal enquiries please contact Pippa Whitehouse ([hidden email]).
