Post-doctoral research associates in ice core science at University of Cambridge
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
Survey. The posts run for 3 years, and are part of the project
Stability of the West Antarctic ice sheet in the last
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.
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
analysis systems to an existing CFA melter setup and lead the
analysis of the core. It
that both PDRAs would participate in one Antarctic field season
and play major
roles in interpreting and publishing the new ice core data.
