Postdoctoral positions at Hokkaido University, Sapporo
Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral positions at
Hokkaido University (HU) sponsored by the AXA Research Fund (ARF). The
positions are for 2 years, starting either 1 October 2013 or 1 April 2014.
The application process is two-staged (pre-selection by HU, final
selection by ARF), and the deadline for the pre-selection round is
11 March 2013.
I'd be happy to act as host supervisor for modelling projects related to
the prediction of ice sheet contribution to future sea level rise,
preferably with the ice sheet models SICOPOLIS (sicopolis.greveweb.net)
or Elmer/Ice (elmerice.elmerfem.org) currently operated at the Institute
of Low Temperature Science. This would qualify under the discipline
"Earth Sciences" and the risk category "Environmental Risks" identified
in the "Call for Applications" document. For more details, please see
