[Met-jobs] Two posts in radar remote sensing/Greenland glaciology in the Bristol Glaciology Centre

Two postdoctoral positions in radar remote sensing/Greenland ice sheet 
glaciology

The primary aim of this project is to determine the conditions and properties 
of the bed beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet, with an emphasis on the margins 
where the largest changes have been taking place. We aim to identify areas of 
basal melting and other basal properties from an extensive suite of ice 
penetrating radar data and other geophysical data sets as well as improving 
coastal bathymetry and bed topography. The work will be undertaken in close 
collaboration with a team of leading scientists from the UK, France, Norway, 
Switzerland and the USA.

A background in a relevant aspect of environmental sciences would be 
advantageous. You should have experience in the analysis, interpretation, and 
visualisation of remote sensing datasets such as altimetry, airborne or ground 
based radar data or similar geophysical data sets, preferably applied to 
glaciers and/or ice sheets. You will be expected to work closely with the group 
in Bristol and the project partners.

The two posts are complementary, with one focusing primarily on basal geometry 
and geophysical interpretation and the second on basal properties from detailed 
analyses of the airborne radar data.
