The School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Earth Observation. The aim is to assess ice losses from the Amundsen Sea sector of West Antarctica using satellite and ground-based measurements. The position is funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council as part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability (iSTAR-D) research programme. The main duties involve developing and synthesising satellite, airborne, and ground-based observations to produce an integrated assessment of ice sheet mass imbalance. Applicants with expertise in the use of satellite InSAR, satellite altimetry, or GRACE satellite gravimetry for studies of Earth geophysical processes are encouraged to apply. The post includes an opportunity to participate in an overland traverse of the Pine Island Glacier, during which firn density and rock crustal motion measurements will be collected to reduce uncertainties in the satellite data. The iSTAR-D consortium is led by Professor Andy Shepherd at the University of Leeds, and involves several UK and international institutions. There will be considerable opportunity to develop scientific results within a research group that is active in satellite geodesy and glaciology. The position is available for 3 years in the first instance, and is due to start on 1st July 2013. Full details of the vacancy can be viewed at http://jobs.leeds.ac.uk/ by searching for job Reference Number ENVEE0164.
