Opportunities to join the RESPONDER team

We are looking for multiple new team members to join the RESPONDER team in 2018.

The first is a research associate in glacier geophysics, who will be responsible for designing and executing experiments with networks of broadband seismometers placed around, and potentially within, boreholes drilled to the base of the Greenland Ice Sheet. The position is based at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, and the researcher will work with Poul Christoffersen and be responsible for analysing and interpreting passive seismic datasets. They will also engage directly with Bryn Hubbard and his group at Aberystwyth University in Wales, where boreholes instruments, sensors and the hot-water drill are developed.

We are also looking for two PhD candidates to start in Cambridge in the new academic year. These will be focussed on using fibre-optic sensors to quantify heat transfer to the base of the Greenland ice sheet, and using novel radar techniques to study the development of subglacial water conduits.
