multiple MS, PhD and post-doc opportunities in ice sheet and climate science at the University at Buffalo

Crooks Nowicki, Sophie

Dear cryosphere community,

We would like to announce multiple graduate student and post-doc opportunities in ice sheet and climate science at the University at Buffalo. Details below.

Best wishes,
Jason Briner, Sophie Nowicki, Kristin Poinar, Elizabeth Thomas


We are seeking graduate students (MS and/or PhD) and post-docs to join the climate and ice sheets group in the Geology Department at the University at Buffalo https://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/geology/research/climate-change.html. Positions available are: (1) GreenDrill project [https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/07/greenland-drilling-campaign-aims-bedrock-trace-ice-sheet-s-last-disappearance]; seeking one student to work on Greenland Ice Sheet history using cosmogenic nuclide geochronology, involves fieldwork in north Greenland. (2) Ghub project [https://vhub.org/groups/ghub]; seeking graduate students and/or post-docs for the following positions: (2a) ice sheet paleo-data synthesis and data-model comparison; (2b) development of big data analysis tools with applications on the Greenland Ice Sheet; (2c) development of analysis and plotting tools for ice sheet model intercomparison project. (3) Funded modeling project on the hydrology of Helheim Glacier, Greenland that can include field work. (4) The RAW project [https://ubwp.buffalo.edu/rapidarcticwarming/] Two students to use
high-resolution climate proxies and proxy system modeling, in collaboration with other team members doing data synthesis and climate modeling, to understand the spatial patterns and processes controlling rapid warming events in the Arctic. (5) NICH-Arctic project [http://nicharctic.ca/] One student to use climate proxies and proxy system modeling, in collaboration with archaeologists and historians, to understand the connection between humans and climate in the Arctic. 6) One student and postdoc for sea level projections using ice sheet models and observations.

 

 

We are looking for highly motivated individuals with excellent communication skills in English (written and oral), and with experience with, or a strong interest in developing skills in, numerical modeling and scientific programming skills. We encourage candidates from groups underrepresented in the geosciences (including Black, Indigenous, and people of color) to apply; we are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all team members. For further information, please contact Jason Briner ([hidden email]) for Projects 1 and 2a, Kristin Poinar ([hidden email]) for Projects 2b and 3, Sophie Nowicki ([hidden email]) for Project 2c and 6, Elizabeth Thomas ([hidden email] ) for Projects 4 and 5.
