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. Please see for further information and details on how to apply.
