The Australian Antarctic Gateway Partnership is seeking to make a
number of University appointments on a full-time basis for terms of
three years. We bring the following positions to your attention:
1. Antarctic Geophysicist Senior Postdoc/Postdoc: synthesising remotely
sensed measurements (both airborne and satellite) and numerical model
output related to ice sheet mass budget.
2. Ice Sheet Modeller Postdoc: applying both forward and inverse methods
to the problem of ice sheet mass budget.
3. Paleo Ice Sheet Modeller Senior Postdoc/Postdoc: focused on
reconstructing the post-LGM Antarctic ice sheet.
4. Cryosphere System Modeller Postdoc: working on coupling
ice/ocean/solid earth models (this is a joint Gateway/ACE CRC position).
5. Antarctic Coastal Ocean Modeller Postdoc: advancing understanding of
the interactions between ice-shelves and oceans using both forward and
6. Geochemist – Geothermal Heat Flux Postdoc: improving understanding of
the magnitude and spatial distribution of geothermal heat flow in East
Antarctica through geochemical analysis and modelling.
A number of related PhD scholarships will also be advertised in due course.
The Antarctic Gateway Partnership is a Special Research Initiative
funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC). The partnership
involves the University of Tasmania, centred at the Institute for Marine
and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and the Australian Maritime College (AMC);
the CSIRO’s Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship; and the Australian Antarctic
Division (AAD). The Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative
Research Centre collaborates closely with the Antarctic Gateway Partnership.
Full position description are available via
remuneration packages vary by the level of appointment but are up to
$138,596 per annum (Senior Postdoc) or up to $117,371 per annum (Postdoc).
For informal enquiries please contact Prof Matt King (Paleo ice sheet
modeller, Cryosphere system modeller, Geochemist) or Dr Ben Galton-Fenzi
(Antarctic Geophysicist, Ice Sheet Modeller, Antarctic Coastal
Modeller). All other enquiries should be directed to Prof Richard Coleman.
