PhD Position Available: Arctic Climate Science
This four-year fixed-term PhD position in Arctic Climate Science will work with a project titled "Dynamic Observations of the Microstructural Evolution of Firn" within the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire.
This position is open until filled.
The associated project will determine the mechanisms of firn densification and microstructural evolution as a function of depth using dynamic observations of the evolution of the firn using x-ray computed microtomography.
Duties of this position will include, but are not limited to, the drilling of a firn core at Summit, Greenland, in situ observations in the microtomography of how the firn changes when subject to a temperature gradient, and in situ microtomography observations of the microstructural evolution using a compression stage will be completed.
Applicants must hold an undergraduate and/or MS degree in engineering or a physical science.
