Position: Research Fellow in Magma-Ocean Modelling
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Earth Sciences
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position in the Department of Earth Sciences to explore coupled geodynamic-thermodynamic models of magma-ocean crystallization. The postholder will develop a new geodynamic-thermodynamic model by extending and coupling already existing mantle-convection (e.g. StagYY) and thermo-dynamic (e.g. PERPLEX) codes. They will also run the coupled numerical models, visualize, analyze and interpret results in the context of magma-ocean crystallization and Earth evolution
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD (or thesis submitted subject to examination) in seismology, or have the equivalent relevant experience, and a first degree in earth sciences, natural sciences or a related subject; Experience in geodynamic numerical modelling and/or thermodynamic modelling and experience in programming and code development using python, Fortran and/or C++ (or similar programming language) is essential
