physical geography research group at the Norwegian University of Science and
Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway (announcement with title below).
Fully-funded PhD at NTNU, Norway: Mapping sinks for microplastics in
Norway and Svalbard
The Department of Geography at NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and
Technology) in Trondheim, Norway, has an opening for a 3-year, fully-funded PhD
position. The successful PhD candidate will map microplastics along
river-to-sea and sea ice-to-coastal pathways in Norway and Svalbard. The
aim of the project is to develop a better understanding of natural transport
processes and sinks for microplastics in these environments, specifically: why
and how are microplastics removed from the water surface, where are they
stored, and for how long?
