Oden Institute Job Opportunities

Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin is seeking outstanding individuals for the following positions:

Post-doctoral positions in the Computational Research in Ice and Ocean Systems Group

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. The successful candidate will work on a joint reconstruction of the holocene state of the Greenland ice sheet and its surface forcing from available observations.

At the heart of this work will be the use of the SImulation COde for POLythermal Ice Sheets (SICOPOLIS) and its adjoint, generated by open-source algorithmic differentiation.

The project is supported by the National Science Foundation and will be conducted in the context of existing national and international collaborations.

The position is initially for one year, with a possible renewal for up to three years. The successful candidate will be part of a dynamic, collegial and interdisciplinary team, the Computational Research in Ice and Ocean Systems Group, that engages in a broad range of research topics surrounding oceans, ice, and climate.
