Postdoctoral position in glaciology
University of York
- Postdoctoral Researcher
The Department of Environment and Geography at the University of York is recruiting a Post Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) in Glaciology. This three-year, full-time position is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to work on a research project entitled: ‘Greenland ice marginal lake evolution as a driver of ice sheet change - how important are rising lake temperatures?’ The project will focus on the hitherto sparsely-studied ice-marginal lake environment and seek to quantify its role in shaping the future of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS).
The project is a collaboration between myself, as well as Professor Duncan Quincey (Leeds), Dr Richard Woolway (Bangor) and Professor Chris Merchant (Reading), and will involve periods of fieldwork in Greenland.
