VACANCY: GEOPHYSICIST (GLACIAL PROCESSES), British Antarctic Survey

Smith, Andy
VACANCY: GEOPHYSICIST (GLACIAL PROCESSES), British Antarctic Survey

We are currently seeking to appoint a post-doctoral (or experienced post-graduate) researcher to join a team studying the processes that control glacial flow, with particular emphasis on conditions at the bed of ice streams and valley glaciers. We use ice-penetrating radar systems to produce detailed maps of sub-glacial bedforms and basal water distribution, together with seismic reflection surveys to derive the physical properties of sub-glacial sediments.

Your job will be to help plan and undertake fieldwork, initially in Antarctica, using radar, seismic and GPS equipment; to process and interpret the data; and to publish the results in scientific papers and at conferences. You will work initially on Pine Island Glacier which is one of the fastest flowing outlet glaciers of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and is currently thinning and accelerating, making a direct contribution to global sea level rise. You will also be involved in analysis of existing datasets and in the development of research proposals for future work in both polar regions.

For further details and to apply, please go to

Closing date for receipt of application forms is 6th February 2011
Interviews are scheduled to be held w/c 7th March 2011

Best wishes,
Andy Smith
