PhD studentship: Antarctic climatology

Richard Hodgkins
The Geography Department at Loughborough University, UK, is offering a fully-funded research studentship in partnership with Extreme World Races (an Antarctic logistics company) for the following project:

Spatio-temporal variation in ice-sheet surface climatology, from interior plateau to ice shelf, in Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica.
- this project will involve measurement and modelling of the surface energy- and mass-balances along a transect, from the interior ice-sheet to the coastal shelf, over two southern summers and one winter, using Automatic Weather Stations. Of particular interest are the diurnal and seasonal cycling of the boundary-layer meteorology, its relationship with surface mass balance, and how well it is represented by re-analysis data/regional climate model output.

This 3-year studentship pays fees, maintenance at UK/EU rates, and two southern summer seasons of fieldwork through the partnership with Extreme World Races. The start date is 1st October 2011, with travel to Antarctica most likely in December 2011.

Enquiries or expressions of interest should be directed to Richard Hodgkins ([hidden email]).  More information, including how to apply, can be found at: Completed application forms should be sent via email to Sue Clarke ([hidden email]). 

The closing date for applications is Friday 8th July 2011.  Interviews are expected to take place week commencing 25th July 2011.
