The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany, State University of New York <http://www.daes.albany.edu/>, seeks applications for a postdoctoral research scientist to work on a high-resolution reconstruction of the South American Summer Monsoon over the past millennium. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an isotopic forward model based on hitherto unexploited high-quality climatological, glaciological and geochemical data from a tropical ice core site, and then apply the model using a suite of isotope-enabled millennium runs from GCMs.
The successful candidate will have (1) a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (glaciology, climate dynamics, paleoclimate, isotope geochemistry); (2) experience with numerical models and working with large datasets; (3) strong communications and collaboration skills and (4) be willing to travel and participate in field work on an ice cap in the Andes. The position is for up to 3 years, contingent on satisfactory performance, and will be based in Albany, NY, but requires collaborations with colleagues at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and NASA/GISS in New York City.
Anticipated start date is September 2013. For full consideration, please send a letter of application, a current CV with list of publications, and the names and contact information of three references to Mathias Vuille (<mailto:email@example.com>).

Call for Proposals Opens: 1 August 2013
Submission Deadline: 30 September 2013
For further information, please go to:
The INTERACT project, under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), has a Transnational Access program that offers access to 20 research stations in northernmost Europe and Russian Federation.
The sites represent a variety of glacier, mountain, tundra, boreal forest, peat-land, and freshwater ecosystems, providing opportunities for researchers from natural sciences to human dimension. The call for proposals for Transnational Access visits taking place between October 2013 and October 2014 will open 1 August 2013.
Transnational Access includes:
- Free access for user groups/users to research facilities and field sites, including support for travel and logistic costs; and
- Free access to information and data in the public domain held at the infrastructures.
Transnational Access is available to user groups where the group leader and majority of group members work in an institution established in an EU Member State or Associated State. The maximum amount of access per user group is 90 person-days, including previously granted INTERACT Transnational Access. Detailed eligibility rules are available at:
Additional information and resources, including registration with the project, application instructions, and a list of research stations, are available at: http://www.eu-interact.org.
The Institute of Biological, Environmental & Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University in Wales is opening a call for applications for fully-funded (fees + stipend) PhD studentships.
This call includes a PhD studentship to explore fungal diversity and trophic interactions in glacial ecosystems using meta- 'omics and chemical imaging approaches. More details are available at: http://users.aber.ac.uk/aye/Frozen_fungi_phd.pdf
Prospective applicants meeting the eligibility criteria are welcome to contact for more information. The deadline for formal applications is on the 22nd of May, 2013 and shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview as part of the selection process.
