Applications are invited for a 3 Year Postdoctoral Position in Ice Sheet Modelling.
There is growing consensus that Thwaites Glacier and adjacent parts of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) are unstable and vulnerable to collapse, with major implications for mean global sea level rise in the coming decades. However, there is large uncertainty concerning future rates of mass loss under different climate scenarios, mainly associated with the representation of key glaciological processes in predictive models. DOMINOS (part of the NSF-NERC funded International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration) will address this problem by using a novel suite of models.
 
Closing Date: 26 October 2018

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral research assistantship (PDRA) to join a NERC-funded project, “Carbon Storage in Amazonian Peatlands: Distribution and Dynamics”.
The project, which involves the Universities of Edinburgh and Leeds and several project partners including the Instituto del Investigaciones de la Amazonía Peruana (IIAP), aims to use palaeoecology, remote sensing, field measurements, and modelling to make a step change in our understanding of peatland carbon storage in Amazonia. The project began in December 2017 and its early work has focused on setting up experiments in the field and collecting samples.
 
Closing Date: 31 October 2018                
 
Interview Date: 14 November 2018
