Description

Postdoc position in polar climate modelling and remote sensing (0.8 - 1.0

FTE)

Job description

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to work on modelling and remote sensing of polar firn over the Antarctic Ice Sheet? We currently offer a position for a postdoctoral researcher to work on model simulations of the firn layer in Antarctica, with a particular focus on perennial bodies of liquid water stored in the firn layer. By combining satellite observations with firn models, you will help to improve our understanding of Antarctic firn and surface meltwater.

Qualifications

We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoc candidate. You hold a PhD degree at the start of the contract, that reflects your affinity with (polar) geophysical models, high-performance computing and programming, numerical modelling, remote sensing, and data analysis. You are keen to work in a team and with external collaborators.

Offer

  • a full-time position for three years (less than 1.0 FTE is negotiable);
  • an inspiring, open minded and open research group;
  • a job with national and international collaboration;
  • a full-time gross salary ranging from €2,836 to €4,474 in scale 10;
  • benefits including 8% holiday bonus and 8.3% end-of-year bonus;
  • a pension scheme, partially paid parental leave, and flexible employment conditions based on the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities (cao).
  • About the organization

    The Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht (IMAU) offers a unique research and teaching environment, in which the fundamentals of the climate system are studied. Research is organized in five themes: Atmospheric Dynamics, Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry, Coastal and Shelf Sea Dynamics, Ice and Climate and Oceans and Climate. In 2017, IMAU research quality and impact were qualified as 'world leading' by an international visitation committee. Currently, IMAU employs 15 faculty members and 10 support staff and about 20 Postdocs and 30 PhD candidates.
