Forwarded from CLIMLIST... In the framework of the young investigators group “The effect of deformation mechanisms for ice sheet dynamics“, the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Department of Geosciences, and the Alfred Wegener Institute, section Glaciology offers one PhD position in glaciology/structural geology (microstructure of ice) to commence early 2014. Our group aims to improve the understanding of dynamic processes of polar ice sheets with respect to prognosis of sea level evolution. The overall goal of our project is to obtain a physical basis for a flow law for ice, derived from the micro-physical processes observed via microstructure investigations. The PhD project shall support this by simulating and evaluating deformation mechanisms of ice using the comprehensive micro-structure modelling platform ELLE. This specific projects aims to provide better insight in the entrapment of air in ice, which is where palaeo-atmosphere is recorded in polar ice sheets. Tasks: The main focus of the successful candidate will be to model ice and firn microstructural processes with recently developed and combined numerical codes to simulate the complex interplay of recrystallisation and highly heterogeneous crystal-plastic deformation, using a full-field approach, incorporating the complex composite ice-air. The numerical simulations shall be combined with analyses on natural ice sample, in order to constrain the relative contributions of the numerous operating processes and their impact on microstructure and mechanical properties of ice and firn. Prerequisites: The candidate should possess proven expertise and a master (or equivalent) in the field of geosciences, physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, or related disciplines. Well-founded knowledge of basic physics and geoscience is required. Additionally, previous experience in microstructure analysis or and computer modelling is an asset. A distinct interest in the scientific exchange and communication within the group members and interdisciplinary collaborators, especially with geophysicists, physicists and climatologists is expected. The candidate should have good language skills in oral and written English, since the working group is composed of international fellow researchers and the research results will be published in internationally. This is a temporary position limited to 3 years. The compensation is in compliance with the TV-L E13 67% Salary. We further offer the possibility to participate in Arctic and/or Antarctic glaciological expeditions. The University aims to increase the percentage of female employees in its scientific departments. Therefore, we encourage qualified female scientists to apply. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference when equally qualified. Please forward your applications with the standard documentation (resume, photograph, credentials and activity reports) and contact details of two references by Email (all documents attached as one pdf-file) to:<Ilka.Weikusat@awi.de>. Deadline for applications is January 2nd.
