We are looking forward to expand our TiPACCs team by employing, training and supervising approximately 10 early-stage researchers. A short description of the position topics is shown below. The positions currently available include a link to the job advertisement of the responsible partner institute. We are happy to receive excellent applications!

The successful candidate will employ idealised ocean simulations testing the impact of forcing (e.g. wind, buoyancy) and boundary conditions (e.g. continental slope topography) on water transport and ice shelf melting.

Supervisor: Adrian Jenkins

This position is being filled.

This position deals with the identification of tipping points in Antarctic marginal seas and to study their possible reversibility. The focus is on assessing ocean-ice sheet feedbacks.

Supervisor: Hartmut Hellmer

This position is already filled.

For this position the focus is on identifying ice sheet tipping points, for both the near-future and long-term stability of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Supervisor: Ricarda Winkelmann

Link to job advertisement: is coming soon

This position deals with the development of ice configurations and investigation of the ice tipping points and reversibility.

Supervisors: Olivier Gagliardini and Fabien Gillet-Chaulet

This position is already filled.

The successful candidate will assess the current stability regime of grounding-lines of Antarctica, identify ice-sheet tipping points, and investigate the near-future stability regime of the Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Supervisor: Hilmar Gudmundsson

The successful candidate will develop an initial ocean state, and assess ocean tipping points and resulting impacts on ice sheet stability.

Supervisor: Hilmar Gudmundsson

The successful candidate will assess if the Antarctic Ice Sheet crossed its tipping point due to the warmer climate of the Last Interglacial period.

Supervisor: Petra Langebroek

Link to job advertisement: will come in autumn 2019

The focus of this position will be on ice-ocean interactions and the effect of different feedbacks on the overall ice-sheet stability.

Supervisor: Ricarda Winkelmann

This position deals with the development of ocean and ice/ocean initial states, and investigates the occurrence of ocean and ice/ocean coupled tipping points.

Supervisors: Nicolas Jourdain and Gaël Durand
