Glaciology postdoc opportunity at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

Jonathan Kingslake-2

Dear Cryolist,

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.


More details on the projects can be found here:


To apply to the position, follow this link:


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.

If you are interested in hearing more about the opportunity please don't hesitate to contact us.
