Assistant Project Scientist University of California Los Angeles
Requisition Number: JPF06546
The incumbent's research will focus on numerical ice sheet modeling across various timescales. Specifically, the incumbent will be:
Applying the state-of-the-art Ice Sheet and Sea-level System Model (ISSM) to simulate the history of the Greenland Ice Sheet across the Holocene and up to the year 2100.
Applying the state-of-the-art Ice Sheet and Sea-level System Model (ISSM) to simulate the history of the Patagonia Ice Sheet across the last deglaciation, in order to better understand the influence of ice loading history on volcanism.
Working closely with glacial geologists and geophysicists to benchmark ice sheet simulations against a range of geologic proxy data of past ice sheet size (e.g. moraine records, relative sea-level records).
Advancing the capabilities of ISSM in modeling over paleoclimate timescales through improvements in the estimation of surface mass balance, treatment of marine terminating margins, and model-data benchmarking capabilities
