Jobs at CPOM

Research Fellow in Sea Ice Altimetry (University of Leeds)

CPOM is seeking to recruit a Research Fellow in satellite radar altimetry, with emphasis on investigating historical and ongoing changes in Arctic sea ice.

In this role, you will make a valuable contribution to our sea ice research, focusing on measuring and monitoring the thickness and volume of historical and current Arctic sea data.  This will involve exploiting recent developments in satellite radar altimetry and the resulting increase in the availability, volume, frequency and quality of Earth observation data.

Although based at the heart of the CPOM team in Leeds, you will work with scientists across our partner universities, including CPOM’s sea ice modelling team at the University of Reading.  In addition, you will liaise with the European Space Agency (ESA), British Antarctic Survey (BAS), National Oceanography Centre (NOC), the UK Met Office and other institutions as appropriate to contribute to CPOM’s scientific objectives.

You will have, or be near to having, a PhD in physics, geophysics, mathematics or a related subject. In addition, you will demonstrate an enthusiasm for scientific research and problem-solving, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work as part of the wider CPOM team.
