Three year Ph.D.-position in Arctic physical oceanography,
sea ice, climate dynamics, and glaciology, Nansen Center, Bergen.
The broader aim of this project is cross-disciplinary
research between physical oceanography, sea ice, climate dynamics, and
glaciology mapping and understanding processes, links, and feedbacks influenced
by a changing climate by combining in
situ and satellite observations, with model developments.
We search for a highly qualified and
motivated candidate with experience in and interest for physical
oceanography, sea ice, climate dynamics, and glaciology, in particular in the
Arctic and Subarctic.
You should have experience in the
analysis and interpretation of data sets, numerical modelling and/or
statistical inference techniques. You must have good programming skills.
The Ph.D.-position is up to 36
months, and funded by The Research Council of Norway.
The Nansen Center should receive the
application NLT April 4, 2017, together with:
- A two-page project description, highlighting the background of the
research ideas, the hypothesis of your research ideas, research plan, and
- One-page motivation
- A two-page CV.
- Two letters of support.
The application should be mailed to:
[hidden email] with cc to CEO Professor Sebastian
H. Mernild ([hidden email]) and Director
International Cooperation and Marketing Lasse Pettersson ([hidden email]). Include in the
subject line “Application for ARCTIC/SUB-ARCTIC Ph.D.".
Interviews are likely to be held
after late-May and the expected start date is August/September 2017.
For an equal level of
qualifications, female applicants will be given priority. Salary follows the
Norwegian Civil Service pay grades for Ph.D. candidates.
The Nansen Center (The Nansen
Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, NERSC) is an independent non-profit
research foundation conducting basic and applied environmental and climate
research. The Center conducts multidisciplinary marine, cryosphere and
atmospheric research with integration and links to modeling, data assimilation
and service development. More information at: www.nersc.no
