Postdoctoral position in climate induced glacier mass changes, Antarctic
Peninsula Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on a glacier – climate
project on the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. The
2-year project involves developing and applying methods to estimate
climate induced glacier mass changes by combining surface mass balance
information and modeling, glacier geometry and ice dynamics from repeat
SAR observations in an inverse approach based on in-situ meteorological
and gridded climate data. The methods will be applied to three selected
test sites to determine the current glacier mass budget and its climate
forcing.

The successful candidate will have experience in modeling
glacier-climate interactions, programing and/ or remote sensing and GIS.
He/she will work as part of a team applying similar methods to Alaskan
glaciers. The work will also be performed in close collaboration with
collaborators from various institutes abroad. This position is open
until filled and can start immediately. The position requires a PhD
degree in a relevant discipline conferred by start date.
