PhD fellowships in Polar Sciences for Indian nationals in Norway

Dr. Thamban Meloth

PhD fellowships in Polar Sciences for Indian nationals in Norway

 

National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR), India, an autonomous institute under the Ministry of Earth Sciences (Government of India), is funding two PhD fellowships in polar oceanography and glaciology, in collaboration with the Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI), Tromsø.

The details are given below:

Post Code # 01 Physical Oceanography (01 Post)

The successful candidate will be involved in a multidisciplinary group at NPI with close collaboration with University of Tromsø, NCPOR, and other partners, which will investigate regional ocean circulation and mesoscale processes in the Svalbard area of the European Arctic. Focus will mainly be on physical oceanography but candidates with the right interest and background may also study sea ice dynamics or lower trophic level ecosystem processes. Numerical ocean modeling will be a key tool in the project, both for understanding the local circulation regime and to assess implications for the sea ice regime, the local ecosystem and regional circulation. The student will carry out research based at NPI's Headquarters in Tromsø, and is expected to follow and complete PhD courses at the University of Tromsø (UiT) - The Arctic university of Norway. The student will be jointly supervised by researchers at NPI, UiT, and NCPOR.

Post Code # 02     Glaciology (01 Post)

The successful candidate will be part of an active glaciology research group at NPI with close collaboration with University of Oslo, NCPOR, and other partners. The PhD project will focus on satellite remote sensing of glacier and ice-sheet changes at regional scales. The candidate shall analyze satellite data to study the evolution of glacio-hydrologic elements, ice dynamics and mass balance. The results will be interpreted in light of available field data, climate reanalysis products and glacier modeling output. The student will carry out research based at NPI's Headquarters in Tromsø, and is expected to follow and complete PhD courses approved by the University of Oslo (UiO). The student will be jointly supervised by researchers at NPI, UiO, and NCPOR.

Details about the positions, qualifications / experiences required, salary, contact persons, and other terms and conditions are detailed at http://ncaor.gov.in/recruitment

To apply, the applicant must fill the online application form available at http://www.incois.gov.in/jobs/ncpor1218/home.jsp

Application deadline is 21st January 2019 (Monday) (1730 Hrs Indian Standard Time).

Regards,

Thamban Meloth, on behalf of NCPOR
