We are seeking to recruit a Research Fellow in Earth observation of the Polar Regions, based at the University of Leeds.
You will join a happy team of glaciologists that use satellite data to improve our understanding of ice sheet-ocean interactions and the processes driving recent change
in the Polar regions. We specialise in using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and altimetry data to measure important glaciological parameters such as the speed of glacier flow, ice shelf thickness change and the filling and draining of sub-glacial lakes. The
group receives research funding on major projects from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the European Space Agency (ESA). We enjoy collaborating with many international partners on funded projects, providing a fantastic opportunity to make
connections and broaden your network.
The position is a 2-year fixed term contract, you must have or be close to obtaining your PhD, and international applicants are eligible.
