Postdoc positions in glacier/ocean interaction – NERC

We are very pleased to advertise two new postdoc positions in glacier/ocean interaction as part of the NERC-funded project FjordMIX ( ). The postdoc positions will be based at the University of St Andrews and University of Edinburgh, and are of 3 and 2 years duration respectively, commencing November 2022. The deadline for applications is 30th June 2022.

The FjordMIX project seeks to advance our understanding of the influence of fjord processes on the interaction of the Greenland Ice Sheet with the ocean, through the development of a novel fjord-modelling framework and its application on an ice-sheet wide scale. The new postdocs will play a key role in the project, developing and validating the fjord model, assessing the processes controlling fjord exchange, and evaluating the impacts of these for ice-sheet/ocean interaction.
