PhD position Norway: snow avalanches

Thomas Vikhamar Schuler
A research position is available at the Glacier, Ice and Snow Section
(HB) at NVE aiming for a PhD degree. The candidate will be enrolled in
the PhD program at the University of Oslo (Department of Geosciences).

The cryosphere-section at the Department of Geosciences has long-term
experience in investigating topics within the terrestrial cryosphere
(snow, glaciers, permafrost), hydrology and geohazards, and is involved
in various high-level research projects and centers (
http://www.mn.uio.no/geo/english/research/groups/cryosphere/index.html ).

The HB section at NVE is engaged in several research projects, both
national and international. Important research tasks are studies of the
effect of climate change on the hydrological cycle, improvement of
hydrological models for flood forecasting and application of hydrological
models (
http://www.nve.no/en/Water/Hydrology/Research-and-development/#Avalanches ).
The national avalanche warning service for Norway has been under
development over the last two years and will become operative
from January 2013. The results from the research project should be
applied to improve the avalanche forecasting.
