The University of Oslo (Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics - CEED) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher (3 years) in numerical modelling of mantle convection.
Prior knowledge and experience of running a finite element code including ASPECT, or similar mantle convection codes, is desired. The position is part of the project POLARIS – the evolution of the Arctic in deep time, with funding from the Norwegian Research Council.
More information below and at link: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/fhILC71R2NTArBVOXs8l6_s?domain=jobbnorge.no
Please forward to anyone who may be interested in applying. I can be contacted with any further questions.
p.s. two additional positions are also open at CEED <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ZkD9C81V0PT6myP75f1vzIl?domain=mn.uio.no> - a Postdoc in mineralogy/condensed matter physics, and a PhD in Arctic geology/geophysics<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ZkD9C81V0PT6myP75f1vzIl?domain=mn.uio.no>.
Dr. Grace Shephard
Researcher and Outreach Coordinator
Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED)
University of Oslo, Norway
Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow available at the Department of Geosciences / Center for Earth Evolution and Dynamics, University of Oslo, Norway.
We seek a postdoctoral research fellow in the field of numerical modelling of mantle convection and geodynamics.
More information and application link: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/fhILC71R2NTArBVOXs8l6_s?domain=jobbnorge.no
Starting date in the first quarter 2022, preferably by February. Application deadline 19th November 2021.
The appointment is a full-time position and is made for a period of three years.
The postdoctoral position is in connection with the Norwegian Research Council funded project POLARIS – the evolution of the Arctic in deep time (PI Dr. Grace Shephard). The POLARIS project aims to understand the deep and surface connection of the Arctic (and high latitude regions more broadly) over the last 400 million years.
Experience in setting up, running and analyzing numerical models of global mantle convection is required. The code that will be used is the finite element code ASPECT (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/c7RkC0YKPviGnAgRXFWPFCb?domain=geodynamics.org), which simulates thermal convection problems in 2-D and 3-D.
* A solid background in geodynamics, including mantle evolution and dynamics
* Prior knowledge and experience of running a finite element code including ASPECT, or similar mantle convection codes.
* Knowledge of a programming language (especially C++ and/or Python)
* A strong record of successfully communicating research results via publications, conference presentations and outreach.
* A good command of oral and written communication in English
