Two postdoc positions in ice-flow modelling/deformation at Centre for Ice and Climate in Copenhagen

Sune Olander Rasmussen-2

Dear All 

There are now two vacant postdoc positions at the Centre for Ice and Climate in Copenhagen with deadline for applications Wednesday August 1st:

Postdoc in ice-flow modelling working on several scales from the small-scale deformation of the anisotopic ice crystals to the bigger-scale modelling of the NEGIS ice stream, on which we are presently drilling an ice core. The post doc will be integrated in a team of ice flow modellers from the Copenhagen Centre for Ice and Climate and the EGRIP international research group.

Postdoc in deformation and flow of ice on the grain scale working to better describe deformation and flow of ice on the grain scale. Thus, the postdoc will contribute to making an existing image processing software to analyse microstructural images of ice core sections more user-friendly and to begin developing software to analyze 3d images of ice core microstructure. The work will also include applying new mathematical concepts like shearlets and curvelets to analyse the microstructure derived from ice core thin sections (e.g. grain and subgrain boundaries, c-axis orientation, etc.) and to analyse upcoming high resolution images of the ice core microstructure derived from Large Area Scan Macroscopes and c-axis fabric analysers (big data).

The postdoc positions are part of the project IceFlow, which is a Villum Investigator Project (2017-2023) with the overall aim to improve knowledge of the flow and deformation of ice with special emphasis on the North East Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS). The project spans ice core studies, borehole observations, and an extensive surface program including radar and drone measurements. All observations are interpreted with the help of computer models and the final goal is to improve ice-stream models and thereby enable better predictions of sea level rise.  

Best wishes,

Dorthe Dahl-Jensen and the IceFlow team
