  • Scholarship/ Fellowship

At Northumbria University, Newcastle UK, we are a seeking a research fellow  in Glacier Dynamics and Ocean Interactions.

This is a two-year funded post through the EU project Tipping Points in Antarctic Climate Components

You will be working as a part of a large international team including researchers at Northumbria University, Newcastle, and several other European research groups (

The work involves running ice-flow and simplified ocean circulations models (plume and box models) and contributing to the further development and testing of the model configuration. There is considerable scope for exploring new research directions and testing and trying new methodologies to understand that stability regime of the coupled ice+ocean system.

You must hold a PhD degree in earth sciences, physical geography, physics, mathematics, or related fields. Previous experience in ice-flow modelling and/or the use of ocean circulations models is of advantage, but not an essential requirement.

The deadline for submitting the application is 31 October 2021.
