Glaciology postdoc opportunity at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of
Columbia University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to
conduct research in the field of glaciology. The PDRS will use field observations,
satellite remote sensing, and/or numerical modelling to understand the processes
controlling the drainage of meltwater across and through ice sheets and ice shelves.
They will have the opportunity to take a leading role in a field campaign in Greenland,
though prior field work experience is not required. The successful candidate will
join a project team led by Meredith Nettles and Jonathan Kingslake at LDEO and Laura
Stevens, at the University of Oxford. We really want to attract a large and diverse
applicant pool. Please consider sharing this opportunity with any networks that
you think can help us achieve this.
Candidates should be recent recipients of
a PhD in the earth sciences, geophysics, glaciology, or a similar field. Experience
in geophysical observations and/or modelling is required.
Experience with glacier geophysics (e.g.,
ice-penetrating radar, GNSS measurements, etc.) or mathematical modelling of ice
deformation is desirable. Field-work experience is desirable, but not required.
Note that candidates who are not able to participate in fieldwork, but have other
abilities we seek, are encouraged to apply.
The appointment will be for one year with
continuation pending funding and progress.
Review of applications will begin on
Dec 18th. The search will remain open until the position is filled.
Columbia University benefits are offered
with this Officer of Research appointment.

the opportunity please don't hesitate to contact us.
