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, 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. The project will use gravity field data and geodynamic
models to investigate lateral variations in upper mantle viscosity and
their relation to contemporary ice sheet mass balance.
Familiarity with glacial isostatic adjustment, geodynamic codes running on
high-performance computing environments and ice-sheet physics, 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:
are being reviewed now, on a rolling basis. Please send informal inquiries
to charig at email.arizona.edu. I will also be attending the Fall AGU Meeting.
