Postdoctoral Research Assistant in satellite remote sensing/glaciology (vacancy 
ref. 16861)
Bristol Glaciology Centre
University of Bristol

The aim of the project is to produce a reconstruction of Antarctic mass trends, 
synthesising complementary measurements from (i) radar and laser altimetry, 
(ii) mass budget estimates, (iii) satellite gravity measurements (GRACE), and 
(iv) vertical motion from GPS. This synthesis will also provide an estimate of 
glacio-isostatic adjustment, and pave the way for more accurate projections of 
the Antarctic ice-sheet contribution to sea-level rise.

A background in some aspect of environmental sciences would be advantageous but 
not essential.  You should have experience in the analysis, interpretation, and 
visualisation of satellite datasets such as altimetry, GRACE and/or SAR.

If successful, you may be appointed either on a fixed-term or a permanent 
contract depending on the extent of your previous relevant research experience.

 The funding for the post is for three years.

Interviews are likely to be held in the week commencing 23 January, and the 
expected start date is February/March. Informal enquires welcome.
