The University of Arizona, Dept. of Geosciences, is advertising a post-doc
position studying the interaction between ice sheets and the solid earth in
the Earth Dynamics Observatory. Applicants with backgrounds in geodesy,
geodynamics, seismology, climate science, applied math, or other areas of
geophysics/related fields will be considered.
The successful candidates will build on our previous work using
spatio-spectral localization of satellite gravimetry to study the response
of the cryosphere to climate change. They will work to investigate regional
differences in cryosphere mass balance and the role these play in ongoing
sea-level rise. Possible projects include, 1) using gravity field data and
geodynamic models to investigate lateral variations in upper mantle
viscosity and their relation to contemporary ice sheet mass balance, and 2)
investigating the spatial relationships between ice sheet mass balance and
the changes to the climate which drive ice mass changes, such as
temperature data, etc.
Familiarity with ice-sheet physics, geodynamic codes running on
high-performance computing environments, global climate model output, strong
writing skills, and the ability to program in MATLAB or a similar
environment are preferred.
The UA Dept. of Geosciences is one of the top rated geosciences departments
internationally, with a collaborative and collegial group of researchers.
The University is located in Tucson, in the geologically and ecologically
diverse Sonoran desert.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, contact information for
three references, a writing sample, and a C.V. More details are included at
the official announcement/posting at: https://uacareers.com/postings/16197 More
than one hire is likely. Applications are being reviewed on a rolling
basis. Please send informal inquiries to charig at email.arizona.edu
