Ph.D. Position in Arctic Climate Science

The successful applicant will determine the mechanisms of firn compaction as a function of depth using a firn core from Summit, Greenland utilizing a combination of dynamic in-situ compression testing in an X-ray computed microtomograph and detailed examination in a cold-stage-equipped scanning electron microscope with electron backscattered patterns and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and microRaman spectroscopy. The aim is to model the resulting observations.

The applicant should have an undergraduate and/or M.S. degree in engineering or a physical science.
