Post Doctoral Research Assistant in Antarctic Magnetotelluric Geophysics
Fixed Term Contract
Salary: £30,046 - £33,797 per annum
Main Purpose of the Post
We have an exciting and rare opportunity for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Antarctic Magnetotelluric Geophysics to join the Swansea Glaciology Group. The successful candidate will participate in multi-national fieldwork campaigns acquiring magnetotelluric data on the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica, followed by data analysis, interpretation and publication of the results. The fieldwork will also involve assisting in the acquisition of extensive associated and multi-faceted geophysical data sets.
This role is part of the GHOST Project ‘Geophysical Habitat of Subglacial Thwaites’, one of eight projects co-funded as part of The International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration by the UK Natural Environment Research Council and the US National Science Foundation (https://thwaitesglacier.org/projects/ghost). The project is a collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey and the University of Edinburgh in the UK, with a number of US institutes, including Penn State University, and with the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany.
1. Acquire magnetotelluric data, and support the acquisition of associated seismic, radar and gravity geophysical data, during two fieldseasons on the Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica.
GHOST aims to test the overarching hypothesis that ‘subglacial conditions can facilitate rapid retreat of the grounding line’ of the Thwaites Glacier, West Antarctica. GHOST will deliver a coordinated geophysical program, with interactive numerical modelling, to characterize the bed of the Thwaites glacier using active-source seismic surveys, natural-source seismic monitoring, deep-sounding and phase-sensitive radar, and magnetotelluric and gravity methods.
The main purpose of GHOST’s magnetolluric sub-project is to facilitate the estimation of geothermal heat flux, groundwater presence and distribution, and flexural thickness affecting the isostatic response that may help stabilize Thwaites Glacier’s grounding line against retreat.
