A 3-year full time position as PhD Research fellow is available at the Department of Geosciences for start this Autumn. For more information, see http://www.geo.uio.no. No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution.
The specific topic of the Thesis will be developed based on the successful applicants own interests and expertise, however it is expected to fall within the research domain of snow hydrology and hydrologic modeling and to contribute increased capability of modeling snow distribution and to develop multiobjective calibration targets for hydrologic modeling in snow dominated catchments.
The successful applicant will be joining a dynamic and growing group with research programs on Arctic and Alpine snow hydrology, remote sensing of the cryosphere (both satellite and UAS based) and regional studies focused on hydrology and climate feedbacks. As Norway relies heavily on hydropower for primary production as well as storage for renewable energy, improved prognostic capabilities for the hydropower industry are a high research priority and characterization of catchment scale snow processes is critical for accurate seasonal forecasting of water resources. Within the research group exist several collaborative activities between The University of Oslo (UiO), The Norwegian Directorate for Water and Energy (NVE), the Northern Research Institute (Norut), Statkraft AS, and the European Space Agency (ESA).
Pay grade: 50 - 57 (NOK 430 500 – 483 700 per year)
The application must include
Application letter, including a statement of interest (related to research topic above)
