We are searching for a graduate student and postdoctoral researcher in the broad areas of ice mechanics and cryospheric fluid dynamics to join us in the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College. We are looking for students of applied mathematics, physics, earth science, or engineering with a keen interest in snow, glaciers, permafrost, and/or icy satellites. Within each of these topic areas, we will work together to find a project of mutual interest and the successful applicants will be encouraged to develop their own ideas.
As a research group, we specifically aim to foster a broader participation of underrepresented researchers in the geophysical sciences. Our goal is to build a community that is supportive and inclusive, with individualized mentoring for each researcher to account for the unique challenges they face.
Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested or know of exceptional candidates. We prefer a winter/spring 2021 start for the PhD student, and flexible for the postdoc.
Dartmouth College is a private, liberal arts college in Hanover, New Hampshire which is in the bucolic Upper Valley on the border of New Hampshire and Vermont. Situated on the Connecticut River and the Appalachian Trail, there are fantastic opportunities for outdoor activities in the surrounding region including hiking, trail running, rowing, skiing, and cycling. Locally there are many trails for cross country and backcountry skiing in addition to the Dartmouth Skiway. Major ski resorts are nestled into the Green and White Mountains, about 1-2 hours afield. The Upper Valley is a collection of 6+ towns with cafes, breweries, farmer’s markets, and coop grocery stores with an artistic and inclusive community. Additionally, Hanover is 2.5 hours from Boston, MA and 3.5 hours from Montreal, QC.
