The Paleoclimate Dynamics section at Alfred-Wegener-Institut invites
applications for a position as a
with a background in ice sheet or climate modelling for the DFG-project
“Global sea level change since the Mid Holocene” (SPP 1889).
Background and tasks:
The aim of this project is to study the evolution of polar ice sheets of
the last 6000 years and to estimate the role of climate – ice sheet
interactions. Combining climate and ice sheet simulations of different
resolution, the project particularly focusses on the ice sheets’ mass
balance and on ice shelf – ocean interactions under natural and
anthropogenic climate change.
The postdoc’s duties will include set-up, supervision, and analysis of
climate and ice sheet (PISM) simulations as well as publication in
The successful candidate should have a PhD in glaciology, atmospheric
sciences, oceanography or related sciences and should have a background
in either ice sheet or climate modelling.
The position is limited to 3 years, starting August 1st, 2016 or later.
