Senior Research Associate in Satellite Altimetry

Location: Lancaster Environment Centre
Salary: £34,804 to £40,322
Closing Date: Tuesday 24 November 2020
Interview Date: To be confirmed

We are seeking to recruit an independent, highly-motivated senior post-doctoral researcher, to work as a radar altimeter expert within the UK Centre for Polar Observation & Modelling. The successful candidate will have responsibility for (1) developing novel satellite radar altimetry processing chains, dedicated to deriving state-of-the-art measurements of ice sheet elevation, and (2) the scientific analysis of these new datasets. Ultimately, this work is expected to contribute towards assessments of the contribution of ice sheets to sea level rise, and to the understanding of the broader impact of climate change upon Earth’s polar regions.

Preferred candidates for this post will have a PhD or postdoctoral experience in satellite altimetry, geodesy, geophysics, glaciology, computer science or software engineering. Independence, critical thinking and excellent interpersonal skills are essential, alongside the ability to work collaboratively as part of a larger team, and to meet tight deadlines.
