Postdoctoral Position in Ice Sheet Modelling, Theory or Lab Experiments at Georgia Tech
The Ice & Climate group at Georgia Tech is seeking a motivated scientist with interests in glaciology, climate science or applied mathematics for a postdoctoral research position. The postdoctoral fellow would have freedom to work on one or more projects on the dynamics that drive ice sheet change. These projects include, but are not limited to:
Granular and continuum modeling of iceberg/sea ice interactions
Stochastic ice sheet dynamics
Ice stream variability in the past and present
Meltwater patterning on ice shelves
Laboratory investigation of ice/water interactions
Detection and attribution of glacier change
The ideal candidate will have a background in numerical modeling, applied mathematics and/or laboratory fluid dynamics experiments. The initial appointment will be for one year, starting no earlier than August 1, 2018, with the opportunity to renew provided mutually satisfactory progress and the continuation of funding.
Georgia Institute of Technology is located in the vibrant city of Atlanta, Georgia and is consistently one of the top ranked educational and research institutions in the United States. The School of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences includes groups working on the dynamics of icy bodies in our solar system, atmospheric physics, fluid dynamics of the ocean and geophysics.
