Job description

We have a vacancy for a PhD research fellow within the field of Physical Geography (glaciology and hydrology branches) at the Department of Geography, NTNU, Norway.

The position is a part of the research project ‘Glacier impacts On The Hydrological systems in Europe and Central Asia: A pilot study of drivers and societal impacts of freshwater discharge from glacial systems in NOrway and the Chinese Karakoram (GOTHECA-NOCK)’ funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The candidates’ work will contribute to understanding the interplay between the climate system, glacio-hydrological change, local communities, and infrastructure in Norway and Chinese mountain regions, as well as the development of a comprehensive risk assessment scheme for local climate change adaptation and mitigation. Fieldwork in Norwegian and China in collaboration with the Western Norway University of Applied Science, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as science communication and dissemination activities with GRID-Arendal, are anticipated.

How to apply

Ph.D. research fellow (ice dynamic-subglacial hydrology modeling OR remote sensing of glacier and glacial lake changes):
The fellowship will be for three years.
