Geodesy/Geophysics job opportunity, University Bristol
Research Associate in Solid Earth Geophysics/Geodesy
School of Geographical Sciences
Fixed Term Contract, Full time
Salary £33,199 - £37,345 per annum
Bristol Glaciology Centre, University of Bristol
We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate in solid Earth geophysics or geodesy. We are looking for a candidate with experience modelling or analysing the processes that affect vertical land movement (VLM) and/or the gravity field and, ideally, their application
to the sea level equation. You should have previously worked with data sets and/or models associated with VLM such as glacial isostatic adjustment models, GPS timeseries, GRACE data or viscoelastic models of Earth deformation.
This post is part of the GlobalMass project (www.globalmass.eu), funded by the European Research Council. The primary aim of this project is to determine the factors influencing sea level rise, including VLM, during the
satellite era by combining a suite of satellite and ground-based observations within a statistical inference framework. The project team includes five work packages each tackling different aspects of the sea level budget. This post is associated with the Solid
Earth work package.
A background in solid-Earth geophysics or geodesy is essential, while experience modelling or analysing the processes that affect vertical land movement and, ideally, their application to the global sea level equation would be advantageous.
