Post-doctoral positions in cosmogenic nuclide dating and glacier/ice sheet modelling
Monash University, , Australia
Apply before: 21 May 2019

Dear all,

I would like to bring your attention to two newly-advertised postdoctoral positions in glaciology/glacial geomorphology at the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment ( at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

We have intentionally set them up to be broad, but ideally I am looking for one glacier and/or ice sheet modeller to interface with climate modellers, and one cosmogenic nuclide person to work on reconstructing past glaciers from landforms and sediments. Successful candidates will form key members of a new research group in glaciers, ice sheets and climate with myself and other earth and atmospheric scientists at Monash as well as wider national and international research groups. We have ongoing field investigations in Antarctica and New Zealand, as well as the possibility to work on any of the world’s glaciers and ice sheets including those in high mountain Asia. The positions come with funding to support fieldwork, computing infrastructure, analytical costs and conference expenses. It is anticipated that the positions will be offered at Level A, however, depending on experience, one of them may be offered at Level B. Salaries and benefits are competitive ($68,040 - $92,343 pa Level A / $97,203 - $115,429 pa Level B, plus 17% employer superannuation).

Melbourne is one of the most interesting and exciting cities on the planet, with a high standard of living, a diverse, liberal, and multicultural population, and great food and arts scenes. Although it is a large city of 5 million people, it is surrounded by beautiful coastlines, mountains and iconic Australian wildlife. It is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities

Monash University is ranked well within the top 100 global universities. Monash supports a diverse workforce and we particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups. See for more information.

Applications are due by Tuesday 21 May 2019. If you have questions, please ask (use my Monash email address

Cheers, Andrew
