Professor/Reader in Ice Sheet Modelling. Durham has a world-leading ice sheet reconstruction group. We seek
a Professor/Reader in modelling to build on Durham expertise in reconstructing past ice sheets; to generate better models and thus forecast capability; and address a wider range of questions and approaches.
Lecturer in Ice-Ocean-Sea-Level Modelling. We seek a modeller in the area of cryosphere-ocean-sea-level modelling
to build on and exploit existing linked strengths in ice sheet and sea-level reconstruction. Areas of expertise could include modelling of ice sheets, ice streams, ice-ocean interaction, glacial-isostatic adjustment, or other aspects of the ice-ocean-sea-level
system. The appointee could work over a range of timescales.
These posts are part of a Strategic Investment Initiative of 40 new posts at Durham University, of which several are linked to a proposed new Climate Impacts
Research Centre (DCIRC) which will undertake research on the past, present and future impacts of climate change. The Centre will co-ordinate Durham’s inter-disciplinary approaches to climate impact research, involving sciences and social sciences.
