Three Research fellow (PhD candidate) positions at the Centre for Climate Dynamics
---> Deadline June 9. 

To apply go to:

The Centre for Climate Dynamics (SKD) – conducts research for the understanding the dynamics of climate, modelling climate changes, and reliable predictions of future climate changes, regionally and globally. SKD is part of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research an umbrella organization that gathers the largest climate change research environment in Norway. The partners of BCCR/SKD are the University of Bergen, Uni Research AS, Institute of Marine Research and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre.

The research fellow positions are announced in the following three topics:

1.  Large scale oceanography with focus on the role of the Nordic Seas on the climate and based on dynamical and statistical analyses of observations and model simulations.
2.  Marine biogeochemistry, with emphasis on large scale distribution of inorganic matter and their stable isotopes in the ocean based on analyses of observations.
3.  Climate dynamics and palaeoclimate, with focus on understanding the physical mechanisms behind rapid climate changes (Dansaag-Oeschger events) during the last glaciation.

The appointees will be formally employed at one of the departments of the Mathematical and Natural Sciences of the University of Bergen (either the Geophysical Institute or the Department of Earth Science) , while the working place and all research duties and assignments will be associated with the SKD. Candidates must have achieved a relevant master’s degree or have equivalent education in physical oceanography, meteorology, earth sciences, biogeochemistry, physics or mathematics, or have submitted their master thesis for assessment by the application deadline. It is a prerequisite, however, that the formal admission requirements for the PhD programme are met before appointment can be made.

Further information about the positions can be obtained from:

Topic (1): Associate professor Tor Eldevik (

Topic (2): Associate professor Are Olsen (

Topic (3): Associate professor Kerim Nisancioglu (

The application must specify which position is being applied for and include a brief statement of research experience and intended research goals within the scope of the PhD topic. The applicant must include a CV, certificates and diplomas/transcripts, the Master´s thesis (or supervisor confirmation of submitted thesis) as well as the names and contact details of two academic referees.
