[Met-jobs] PhD position in atmospheric physics at NTNU, Norway.

Date Tue, 5 Apr 2011 09:46:57 +0200

PhD Research Fellowship position in atmospheric physics at NTNU
Trondheim, Norway.

One PhD position within energy and environmental physics is available at
Department of Physics, NTNU. The position will involve analysis and
interpretation of meteor radar observations of the dynamics of the
mesosphere and lower thermosphere. In particular the research will
focus on long-range horizontal and vertical coupling in the atmosphere.
There are excellent collaborative opportunities for the candidate to
visit international research institutes. The successful candidate is a
highly motivated and ambitious student with excellent grades and a
demonstrable interest in atmospheric physics.

PhD fellowships at NTNU are normally awarded for a total of 3 years with
the possibility of until 1 year extension with 25 % teaching duties in
agreement with the department.

The position is organized at the Department of Physics. Currently, there
are 26 professors, 10 associate professors, 7 adjunct professors, 70
PhD research fellows and 25 postdoctoral positions appointed at the
Department of Physics. The current research fields at the Department
include optics, energy and environmental physics, didactic physics,
biophysics and medical technology, condensed matter physics, surface
science, nanotechnology and theoretical physics. Further information is
available at:

The candidate must be diligent and display the ability to work
independently (supplemented with regular guidance) and is expected to
carry out high-quality research and to publish the results in
international journals. A background in atmospheric physics, data
analysis and some previous programming experience (C, IDL, Matlab, etc)
would be advantageous. The successful candidate will hold a university
degree (Master of Science or equivalent) in the physical sciences.
Further information can be obtained from Prof Rob Hibbins, Department
of Physics, NTNU, e-mail:
