Research Associate position in oceanography, researching sea level variations 
(vacancy ref. ACAD102130)
Bristol Glaciology Centre
University of Bristol

The primary aim of this project is to determine the factors influencing sea 
level rise, including glacio-isostatic adjustment, during the satellite era and 
eventually, for the 20th Century by combining a range of satellite and 
ground-based observations within a statistical inference model.

This post requires a background in physical oceanography.  You should, ideally, 
have experience in the analysis and interpretation of sea level data such as 
tide gauge records or satellite altimetry or a background in thermosteric 
and/or ocean heat budget studies. You must have good programming skills. Some 
experience of numerical modelling would be advantageous.  This post is part of 
a European Research Council grant that includes four other positions tackling 
different aspects of the sea level budget.

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 up to 48 months.

Interviews are likely to be held in the week commencing 21st Nov and the 
expected start date is early 2017. Informal enquires are welcome.
