Postdoc, modeling interactions in Antarctica - University Park, PA, USA

With support from the NSF-funded Polenet-ANET project, Penn State University, USA, seeks a postdoctoral scholar to work on modeling ice sheet-sea level-solid Earth interactions in Antarctica.


The position is initially for one year with the possibility for renewal, at the University Park Campus.

A start date on or before August 2020 is desirable.

The position requires travel between Penn State and McGill University, with significant time spent at both institutions.


The project will involve incorporating new seismic and geodetic constraints on 3D Earth structure beneath the Antarctic into a coupled model of glacial isostatic adjustment and Antarctic Ice sheet dynamics to understand the role of the solid Earth on past and future ice sheet evolution and improve glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) corrections to modern satellite records.

The candidate will have the opportunity to work closely with David Pollard and Andy Nyblade at The Pennsylvania State University and Natalya Gomez at McGill University, as well as interact with the rest of the international, interdisciplinary Polenet team.


A PhD in a relevant field is required by the date of hire.


The position will remain open until filled.

Candidates should include a letter of interest, a CV, and contact information for three references with the application.
