Research Fellowships in Atmospheric Water Cycle Dynamics and Cryospheric Sciences
PostDoc and PhD Research Fellowships in Atmospheric Water Cycle Dynamics
and Cryospheric Sciences are available in Norway.
Within the project SNOWPACE, funded by the Norwegian Research Council, a
4-year Postdoctoral position at the University of Bergen (UiB) and a
3-year PhD stipendiate at the University of Oslo (UiO) are available.
The postdoctoral position is also co-funded by the EU H2020 project INTAROS.
About the projects and working tasks
The SNOWPACE project aims to identify where moisture sources for the
Norwegian winter snow pack are located, and how variable they are. The
work will include a combination of laboratory and field measurements
from ship, stations and surface transects, and the development and use
of advanced isotope-enabled atmospheric models for their interpretation.
In order to contribute to the larger aim of using stable isotopes to
constrain the water cycle in atmospheric models, we seek curious and
creative candidates with a relevant background in the fields stable
isotope analysis and modelling, atmospheric science, hydrology,
glaciology or numerics for a PhD and a PostDoc position.
The PostDoc position is located at the Geophysical Institute at
University of Bergen while the PhD position is within the Department of
Geosciences at University of Oslo. Strong collaboration and
co-ordination between both positions is anticipated, including joint
The PostDoc at UiB will focus on high-quality vapour data acquisition in
the field, and the interpretation of moisture source information
contained in stable isotope parameters, including the Deuterium excess.

The PhD project at UiO will be centered around the collection of snow
samples and the analysis of water vapor source regions for the snow pack
measurements using different model tools. Further details regarding the
