Applications are invited for the post of Researcher in Oceanography to undertake research into multidisciplinary ocean processes in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica. The research will be based within the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) at the University of East Anglia. You will work with Dr Rob Hall and Professor Karen Heywood (UEA), and Dr Bastien Queste (University of Gothenburg) on the NSF-NERC-funded ARTEMIS project.
You will contribute to an observational field campaign in the region of the Thwaites ice shelf in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica, using autonomous ocean gliders. You will process, analyse and publish the observations, in collaboration with other ARTEMIS scientists in the UK, US and Sweden.
You should have, or expect gain soon, a PhD in oceanography and a publication record showing evidence of international quality. You should have excellent oral and written communication skills, with experience of presenting results at conferences.
We anticipate you will assist in remotely piloting ocean gliders during the ARTEMIS observational oceanographic campaign in the Amundsen Sea in early 2022, and that you will visit international ARTEMIS partners during the project.
Closing Date: 9 November 2021
The University is a Silver Institutional Athena Swan Award holder and aims to make its first submission to the Race Equality Charter in 2022.
