Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Snowhydrology
A 2.5 year position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. The position is available from June 2016.
The candidate will work within the ESCYMO project (Enhancing snow competency of models and operators) funded by the Norwegian Research Council and partners from the hydropower industry. The project is led by Assoc. Prof. Thomas V Schuler and Assoc. Prof. John F Burkhart.
The project aims at better descriptions of spatial and temporal distributions of seasonal snow. The task will be to develop algorithms describing the small scale variability of seasonal snow based on terrain parameters and weather/ snow conditions. These algorithms are to be implemented and tested in a hydrological model framework Scientific publications in international journals are expected. The postdoc will closely collaborate with industry partners and an already assigned PhD student
We envisage the candidate having a strong quantitative background from hydrology/ geophysics/ meteorology, field abilities in cold environments, experience in programming and modeling and good collaboration skills.
Section for Physical Geography and Hydrology
The position is affiliated with the Section for Physical Geography and Hydrology, which has long-term experience in investigating the terrestrial cryosphere (permafrost, snow, glaciers) and is involved in various high-level research projects and centers. (See for instance Section for Geography and Hydrology, Geomatics and remote sensing, or Cryosphere.)
We offer a lively, friendly and collaborative research environment in cold regions sciences, in particular in cryospheric sciences, remote sensing, geohazards, and geomatics. We participate in international projects such that the successful candidate will have excellent opportunity to participate in international research networks.
