Post-doctoral research associates in ice core science at University of Cambridge

Eric Wolff

We are seeking two Post-doctoral research associates (PDRA) in ice core science.  They would join the Department of Earth Sciences in Cambridge and would also work closely with the British Antarctic Survey. The posts run for 3 years, and are part of the project “Warm Climate Stability of the West Antarctic ice sheet in the last interglacial (WACSWAIN)”, led by Eric Wolff and funded by the European Research Council. The project will retrieve a new ice core to assess the state of the Ronne Ice Shelf and the West Antarctic Ice Sheet at the last interglacial.

One PDRA will develop a system to measure total air content in this and other cores, and will also lead work on the dating of the new core. The second PDRA will add methane and water isotope analysis systems to an existing CFA melter setup and lead the continuous analysis of the core.  It is expected that both PDRAs would participate in one Antarctic field season and play major roles in interpreting and publishing the new ice core data.

If you have (or soon will) a relevant Ph.D. and are interested in the jobs, please look at further details at and contact Eric Wolff ([hidden email]) to discuss the position. The closing date for applications is March 3rd.
