two new open postdoctoral research positions in ice-sheet modelling at Northumbria University
Dear members of the Cryolist,
Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, welcomes applications for two postdoctoral research positions in ice-sheet modelling.
The application deadline for both of these positions is 25 Feb 2021.
We invite applications for a two-year Research Fellow position in ice sheet modelling, funded by the US National Science foundation (NSF) and the UK Natural Environment Research Council, (NERC). The successful candidate will be part of
the multi-disciplinary research theme ‘Extreme Environments’ and will be based in the Department of Geography & Environmental Sciences at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. The project will focus on developing a new mechanistic framework for modelling
rift processes in Antarctic ice shelves and validation with in-situ measurements and remote-sensing data. This post is a part of US-UK collaboration project involving MIT and Harvard University in the US, and Northumbria University in the UK. The candidate
will primarily work with Hilmar Gudmundsson and Jan De Rydt at Northumbria University, as well as with Brent Minchew at MIT, and Brad Lipovsky at Harvard University. The candidate will be a part of a sizeable group at Northumbria University focusing on various
numerical and theoretical aspects of ice mechanics, data assimilation and the verification and validation of ice-sheet models.
We furthermore invite applications for a six-month Research Fellow position in ice-sheet modelling, funded as a part of the UK/US joint International
Thwaites Glacier Collaboration. The
project will focus verification and validation of numerical ice-sheet models using remote sensing data with a particular focus on testing implementation of calving processes and validation against observations.
