opportunity, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia
Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for
a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in inverse modeling of
glacial isostatic adjustment.
candidate will use glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modeling to
better understand solid Earth properties, ice sheet evolution, and
sea level change since the last glacial maximum. Particularly, the
successful candidate will use gradient-based optimization
to solve the GIA inverse problem within a laterally
heterogeneous earth model.
Candidates should have completed or be nearing
completion of a PhD in Geophysics (Seismology, Geodynamics,
Glaciology) or related discipline. Excellent programming and
mathematical skills are highly desired. Prior experience in one or
more of the following is a plus: inverse theory, adjoint methods,
glacial isostatic adjustment modeling, sea level or cryospheric
research. Evidence of the ability to
conduct and publish high quality research is desired.
Proposed start date
is August 1st 2019, with some flexibility.
Appointment will be for 1-year, with
continuation pending funding and progress.
Search will remain open for at least 30 days
after the ad appears and will continue until the position is
