atmospheric and climate systems; cryospheric sciences; paleoclimate and

Main responsibilities:
To develop a program of research focusing on using existing ice-penetrating
radar datasets and physics-based mathematical modelling to understand the
past and present flow of ice sheets. Available data include ground-based
and airborne ice-penetrating radar data from East Antarctica aimed at
understanding the deepest layers. These data have been collected by
researchers at Lamont-Doherty, the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets
(CReSIS), and NASA Operation Ice Bridge. The successful applicant will be
encouraged to develop research ideas aimed at analyzing these data with the
aid of mathematical techniques, including modelling of ice flow and
radar-wave propagation.

Candidates should have have completed or be nearing completion of a PhD in
Glaciology, Geography, Earth Sciences, Geophysics, Applied Mathematics,
Physics or a related discipline. Excellent programming and mathematical
skills are preferred. Some experience analyzing and interpreting
