The iC3 Polar Research Centre invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow in polar ice, fluid dynamics, and carbon. This three-year position will be located in Tromso, Norway.

The goal of the project is to constrain the impact of glacial dynamics on fluid transport and release beyond present day ice sheet-margins in Antarctica and/or Greenland and their potential impacts on ocean carbon cycling. The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to join multidisciplinary programs and research cruise(s).

The successful candidate must have significant and documented experience with seismic data processing and interpretation, as well as integrated geophysical and geological data analyses. Knowledge in geostatistics and numerical modeling would be highly beneficial, as would experience with fluid flow systems on continental margins and glacial dynamics.

The successful candidate will:

  • Explore the potential to apply advanced geophysical data analyses to document glacially induced sub-surface fluid transport beyond the present-day ice-margins;
  • Constrain the processes and timescales involved in such fluid transport; and
  • Build up conceptual models of ice sheet influenced fluid transport and release and its impact on ocean carbon cycling, suitable for implementation in numerical simulations of sub-seabed fluid flow processes.

Applicants must have submitted their PhD thesis before the application deadline.
