The post is based in the Bristol Glaciology Centre working on a European Union project, ice2sea, (www.ice2sea.eu) which aims to explore present-day and future contributions to sea level from glaciers and ice sheets. This is a collaborative project involving ~ 25 partners internationally. The aim of this post is to produce a time series of mass trends for Antarctica and Greenland from a range of satellite observations combined with climate and statistical modelling. You should have experience in the analysis of 4-D data, preferably from Earth Observation data sets. A background in glaciology and/or climatology would be advantageous but not essential. Initially, funding will be for a period of up to three years with salary in the range £29,704 – £33,432 depending on experience.
If successful, you may be appointed either on a fixed term or a permanent contract depending on the extent of your previous relevant research experience, in line with the University’s Fixed Term Contract Agreement.
