Asiaq, Greenland Survey announces a permanent position for a researcher and program coordinator within the Hydrology, Climate and Environment group

We offer a challenging position as a researcher within climate and cryosphere at Asiaq, Greenland Survey. Asiaq is leading the three ClimateBasis and one GlacioBasis sub-program of the Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring programme (GEM, www.g-e-m.dk). Within these programs our aim is to provide reliable data for interdisciplinary ecosystem studies since 1996 in Zackenberg, Northeast Greenland, since 2007 in Nuuk, Southwest Greenland and since 2016 in Qeqertarsuaq, West Greenland. The researcher will be responsible for (I) ensuring continuity in the monitoring; (II) organizing and conducting field work; (III) performing quality control, processing and analysis of the monitoring data; and (IV) publish the results to the scientific community and to public outreach. Tight collaboration and coordination with colleagues in Asiaq both technicians and academic personal, as well as international partners within GEM and beyond is essential and facilitated. Developing project ideas and preparing applications will be an important component of this position.

You are a researcher within the field of climatology or cryosphere and have an excellent publication record and a well-established international network. Ideally, you have Arctic experience and worked with interdisciplinary projects before. You have advanced programming skills and processing of large data amounts and/or database handling is natural to you. You are excited about working in an international environment, have substantial field experience, are willing to travel and can imagine living in fascinating Greenland. Excellent spoken and written English is required. Experience with project management, research applications and public outreach is essential.

Asiaq is a company owned by the Government of Greenland. With a total of 28 interdisciplinary and international employees we are responsible for monitoring the non-living environment in Greenland. Our tasks range from research, consultancy and commercial activities to monitoring and advisory for public authorities. You will be working within the Hydrology, Climate and Environment Department that includes a workshop with several technicians.

Employment conditions follow the agreement between the Government and the respective union and are competitive at international standards. Workplace is in Nuuk, Greenland’s capital with its thriving multi-ethnic community and its endless outdoor opportunities in the backyard.  Staff accommodation will be assigned in accordance with applicable rules.
