Postdoctoral Research position in Antarctic Mass Balance estimation from EO 
data (Resolving Antarctic ice mass TrEndS: RATES)
The aim of this project is to produce a reconstruction of Antarctic mass 
trends, by combining complementary measurements from (i) radar and laser 
altimetry, (ii) satellite gravity measurements (GRACE), and (iii) bedrock 
vertical motion from GPS, using a Bayesian statistical framework. The synthesis 
will also provide an estimate of glacio-isostatic adjustment that is data 

A background in some aspect of environmental sciences is desirable.  You should 
have experience in the analysis, interpretation, and visualisation of satellite 
datasets such as altimetry, GRACE and/or GPS.

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. 
Further information can be found at<>. The 
funding for the post is for 18 months. Further particulars can be found in the 
link below

Interviews are likely to be held in the week commencing 24th March, and the 
expected start date is May/June. Informal enquires welcome.
