If you are interested in studying ice sheets or sea ice using satellite and meteorological data, we are currently advertising 2 PhD positions. The projects are fully funded and based in the Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling at the University of Leeds. Both projects suit candidates with experience of scientific programming or satellite data processing.

The ice sheet project aims to investigate ice dynamical imbalance, and the sea ice project aims to explore trends in Arctic sea ice thickness and volume. Both projects will combine satellite altimetry and meteorological data. To support your studies, we will provide training in Earth Observation as well as academic writing, presentation skills, and science communication.
