Postdoctoral position in climate induced glacier mass changes, Antarctic Peninsula, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks

Postdoctoral position in climate induced glacier mass changes, Antarctic
Peninsula
at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on a glacier-climate
project on the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. The
2-year project involves developing and applying methods to estimate
climate induced glacier mass changes by combining surface mass balance
information and modeling, glacier geometry and ice dynamics from repeat
SAR observations in an inverse approach based on in-situ meteorological
and gridded climate data. The methods will be applied to three selected
test sites to determine the current glacier mass budget and its climate
forcing.

The successful candidate will have experience in modeling
glacier-climate interactions, programing and/ or SAR remote sensing and
GIS. He/she will work as part of a team applying similar methods to
Alaskan glaciers. The work will also be performed in close collaboration
with collaborators from various institutes abroad. the project does not
involve fieldwork, however, opportunities might be given in other projects.

This position is open until filled and can start immediately. The
position requires a PhD degree in a relevant discipline conferred by
start date.
