Postdoc Position in Subduction-zone Geodynamics at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge, UK has an opening postdoctoral associate position in applied mathematics. This position is closed on October 27, 2018.

Applicants are sought for a nine-month postdoctoral research associate position in subduction-zone geodynamics. The project will investigate the complex interplay between the thermodynamics of hydrous mantle melting and the fluid dynamics of melt transport in subduction zones. One aim of the project is to better understand the controls on the location of island-arcs. The applicant will be expected to develop new code for cutting-edge numerical simulations of subduction-zone dynamics.

The applicant must have PhD in a relevant field and should have a strong background in applied mathematics with experience developing numerical simulations using the finite element method. Previous experience in the thermodynamics and fluid dynamics of multiphase flows is essential. The applicant should also have a strong track record of published research in peer-reviewed international journals and will have good communication skills in order to present results at international meetings. The successful applicant will need to be able start the position on 1st January 2019.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 8 months in the first instance.

Further information can be obtained from John Rudge Interviews are expected to take place early in November.
