Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Cryospheric Sciences

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in cryospheric sciences. Researchers at the Observatory work to understand the dynamics of the Earth’s chemical, physical and biological systems, from the core to the upper atmosphere, including Earth’s interactions with human society. Our scientists lead research in the fields of solid Earth dynamics; ocean, atmospheric and climate systems; cryospheric sciences; paleoclimate and biogeoscience. Continue reading


CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2016 Application

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) promotes the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, and disseminating software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.

CSDMS invites graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the annual “CSDMS Student Modeler Award.” If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2015, which involved developing an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify for this award! Entries will be judged on the basis of ingenuity, applicability, and contribution toward the advancement of geoscience modeling by a panel of experts in the field. We’ll have a prize!  In addition, CSDMS will fund your visit to our annual meeting in Boulder, Colorado May 17-19 to learn all about the CSDMS.  You may possibly have a chance to work with CSDMS scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.

Please submit a one-page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper, and contact information for your supervisor to the CSDMS Facility: csdms@colorado.edu.

Deadline for application: January 10th, 2016

Recipient of this year’s award will be announced by the end of January 2016.


Student Scholarships: Community Surface Dynamics Modeling Systems Meeting

Student Scholarships to attend the CSDMS Annual Meeting, May 26-28th in Boulder CO, deadline March 1st, 2015.

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) deals with the Earth’s surface – the ever-changing, dynamic interface between lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and atmosphere. We are a diverse community of experts promoting the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, supporting, integrated software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment and solutes in landscapes and seascapes.
