1. Council on Library and Information Resources seeks Postdoc
Arctic Social Science Data Curation
Boulder, Colorado

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is working with
the University of Colorado NSIDC/CIRES to identify potential candidates
for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Arctic Social Science Data
Curation. The position will be based in Boulder, Colorado.

The fellow will play a strong role in defining social science data
archival and usage requirements for ACADIS and related NSIDC systems.
the Postdoctoral Research Scientist will be working with professional
data scientists and curators at multiple organizations, and the broader
arctic research community to enhance and expand data management services
that formally preserve arctic data and make them available to diverse
audiences in integrative ways. The Research Scientist will conduct
active research on how social science is actually conducted, in order to
develop requirements for effective management of social science data.

Candidates must have received a PhD after 1 January 2008 but before
beginning the fellowship in June 2013. Applicants should have knowledge
of and experience in data management and stewardship, including digital
preservation issues, concepts, and practices.

Applications will be accepted until filled.

2. Dartmouth seeks Postdoctoral Fellow
Grain Boundary Migration Processes in Deforming Ice
Hanover, New Hampshire

Dartmouth is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on a project that
aims to understand and model the above phenomena through an improved
understanding of grain boundary migration processes in deforming ice.

The project's working hypothesis is that slipping grains can propagate
without requiring their recrystallization, and that this process is
closely associated with anisotropy in grain boundary mobility during
deformation. To seek evidence of these mechanisms, the project proposes
following series of laboratory observations on granular freshwater ice:

1. Conduct confined compression experiments at low deviatoric
stresses and a range of pressure and temperature to develop a
preferred c -axis orientation and cause produce growth.
2. Use standard techniques to document c -axis orientations, grain
size and shape of the deformed microstructures for several
temperatures and shear stress levels.
3. Employ electron backscatter pattern (EBSP) analysis to document a
- and c -axis orientations of slipping and abutting grains in the
deformed material.
4. Use surface etching to identify slip line arrays in the deforming
grains, and couple these observations with the grain boundary
structures observed in the EBSP results.

This series of observations will allow determination as to whether and
to what extent the proposed growth mechanisms operate, and support the
development of physically-based models of the development of preferred
lattice orientations in deforming ice masses. U.S. citizenship is
required for this position.

3. Scottish Association for Marine Science seeks Lecturer
Senior Arctic Marine Scientist
Oban, Scotland

The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) seeks to fill the
position of Lecturer/Reader for a Senior Arctic Marine Scientist. The
position will be based in Oban, Scotland.

The successful candidate will be expected to provide scientific
leadership and expertise in any area of arctic marine research
compatible with SAMS' research strategy, using observational,
experimental or modeling approaches. The candidate will be expected to
have skills complimenting those of existing SAMS' staff, including a
team of arctic marine and atmospheric scientists and a technology group
developing novel sensors. SAMS has a dedicated Arctic Research Theme
and, and this position will forge multidisciplinary collaborations
across the institute, which includes research in marine and atmospheric
physics, technology, geochemistry, ecology and microbiology.
