Research Positions at the Polar Science Center

The Polar Science Center at the Applied Physics Laboratory is inviting applications for research scientists with principal investigator responsibilities in the following areas: a) fundamental physics of ice and interaction of ice and water, b) physical oceanography, particularly observation or numerical modeling of ice-ocean interaction, for example, as applicable to fjord or ice-shelf cavity circulation and its influence on outlet glaciers, and c) biology of the ice-ocean environment with a focus on lower trophic levels including remote sensing.  PSC researchers have access to excellent capabilities in field logistics and engineering and we encourage applications from researchers who will utilize those.  Candidates in other areas of specialization may be considered depending on qualifications and research record. We seek candidates who have completed their postdoctoral research with a record that demonstrates high potential to develop their own well-funded program. Initial research support over a nominal 2-year period will come from start-up funds and existing project funds. Thereafter, candidates are expected to have established self-sustaining grant-funded research programs.

Applications including CV, research interest summary, publication and funding history, and names of four references and should be sent to: pscjobs@apl.uw.edu
