Oxford postdoctoral position modelling temperate ice dynamics

Ian Hewitt
2-year Postdoctoral Research Assistantship --- Two-Phase Models of Temperate Ice

We are looking to appoint a postdoc to work in the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, starting as early as 1 May 2017.  The postdoc will work with Profs Richard Katz and Ian Hewitt to develop analytical and computational two-phase models for temperate ice deformation.  The project is jointly funded by NERC & NSF, and is in collaboration with experimentalists (Profs. Neal Iverson, Iowa State and Luke Zoet, UW-Madison), who will be studying temperate ice deformation using a rotary device.  The postdoc will use computational models to help interpret the experimental results, and to investigate the role of internal meltwater in high-shear zones of ice sheets, such as in ice-stream margins.

Full details are available here http://tinyurl.com/oxford-ice-pdra and in the linked “FPs_OxfordPDRA” document.

Please send informal enquiries to [hidden email] or [hidden email].  The closing date for applications is 27 Feb 2017.
