Physical Scientist: Ice/Ocean Modellers (2 positions)
British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK
Closing date: 08 December 2019
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is looking for two post-doctoral physical scientists in the field of Ice-sheet/Ocean Modelling to investigate future sea-level rise from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
The successful candidates will develop, run and evaluate regional models of the ocean and ice sheet in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica. These models will be used to assess the roles of natural climate variability and human-caused climate change on sea-level rise from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Applicants will need to have expertise in the use of numerical models of ocean circulation, ice-sheet dynamics, or equivalent related expertise. Experience of computer programming on linux-based systems is also required.
