Post Doctoral Research Assistant in Earth Sciences Marine Physics and Ocean Climate, National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool The National Oceanography Centre, part of the Natural Environment Research Council, is a national research organisation, delivering integrated marine science and technology from the coast to the deep ocean and is one of the top five institutions of its kind in the world. With sites in Liverpool and Southampton, it is the UK?s leading centre for sea level science, coastal and deep ocean research and technology development. Working closely with its partners and associates it provides capability to meet the needs across the UK marine science community. We invite applications for a researcher in Earth Sciences to work on a NERC-funded consortium "Using Inter-Glacials to Assess Future Sea-Level Scenarios (iGlass)", consisting of seven institutes, three non-academic partners and four overseas academic partners and advisors. The consortium will study the response of ice volume/sea level to different climate states during the last five inter-glacials, which include periods with significantly higher sea level than the present. As a researcher in the iGlass consortium, you will combine observations of past sea levels and estimates of ice sheet variations with solid earth modelling to develop an integrated understanding of the total sea-level change during these periods and the relative contributions from the Greenland and (West) Antarctic ice sheets. You should possess a PhD or equivalent in a relevant scientific discipline and be an experienced researcher with strong programming and statistical skills. You should have the ability to analyse large data sets, have well-developed self- and time-management skills and be able to communicate clearly, both orally and in writing. You will work within the Marine Physics and Ocean Climate group at the NOC under the guidance of Dr Mark Tamisiea and Dr Svetlana Jevrejeva, and will interact with Dr Glenn Milne (University of Ottawa) and other members of the iGlass consortium. The post is a three-year, fixed?term position and is available from 1 October 2011. The salary will be in the range of £26,180 to £29,410 per annum. General enquiries only, (please do not send CVs) should be directed to Dr. Mark Tamisiea (email@example.com).
