Applications are invited for the post of Senior Research Associate in Physical Oceanography to undertake research in ocean processes in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica.  You will work with Professor Karen Heywood and Dr Rob Hall on the NSF-NERC-funded TARSAN project.

You will contribute to an observational field campaign in the region of the Thwaites glacier in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica, using autonomous underwater vehicles (gliders and propeller-driven), autonomous surface vehicles, moorings, and ship-based hydrographic and turbulent microstructure surveys.  You will process, analyse and publish the observations, in collaboration with other TARSAN scientists in the UK, US, Sweden and Korea, spanning expertise in glaciology, atmospheric and marine science.

The research will be based within the Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS) at University of East Anglia.

Closing date: 19 August 2019.
