Lene Kielsen Holm from the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources, along with her research group, has just received the honourable international Mohn Prize of 1 million Norwegian Kroner. The prize is awarded for outstanding research related to the Arctic.
In North-East Greenland, researchers have measured the loss of heat that comes up from the interior of the Earth. This enormous area is a geothermal “hot spot” that melts the ice sheet from below and triggers the sliding of glaciers towards the sea.
We are looking for a dedicated person who can take part in developing our Department. The Department of Environment and Minerals Resources is growing, and we therefore seek a scientist with a degree in natural sciences, preferable in the marine environment.
The University of Manitoba invites applications for two (2) Canada Research Chairs (CRC) – Tier 2: one in oil spill science and one in sea ice modelling. Both will be tenure-track appointments at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.
