PhD studentship in ‘Using Earth Observations to Unravel the Greenland Dark Zone’

Dr Jim McQuaid (Earth & Environment, Leeds), Dr Duncan Quincey (Geography, Leeds) & Dr Amélie Kirchgaessner (Atmosphere, Ice and Climate team, British Antarctic Survey)



We are seeking applicants for a competitive NERC PhD CASE studentship to start in October 2020 at the University of Leeds, in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey.


The project will focus on using satellite observations coupled with back trajectory and dispersion modelling to determine the sources of particulate material which is deposited onto the Greenland icesheet.

This material then reduces the surface albedo accelerating the melting of the icesheet.


Further details are available on the SENSE-CDT website:


Interested applicants can also apply on the website:


The application deadline for entry in October 2020 is Sunday 19th January 2020.
