Post-Doc position (m/f/d) in Physical Oceanography
Mass loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet presently accounts for a quarter of global sea level rise. Recent evidence suggests that marine terminating glaciers all around Greenland have started to retreat. Key to triggering glacier instability is a supply of relatively warm ocean waters. Our studies in Northeast Greenland revealed that the properties of the Atlantic waters determine to first order the intensity of ocean-driven melt at the marine terminating outlet glaciers.
The position is part of the Priority Program 'Regional Sea Level Change and Society (SeaLevel)', funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), which provides great opportunities to work with natural and social scientists.
For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Torsten Kanzow (firstname.lastname@example.org, +49(471)4831-2913).
The position is limited to 3 years, the targeted starting date is 1st December 2019. The salary will be paid in accordance with the German Tarifvertrag des öffentlichen Dienstes (TVöD Bund), up to salary level 13. The place of employment will be Bremerhaven.
