For the original announcement: http://uio.easycruit.com/vacancy/1293346/64289?iso=no The Department of Geosciences announces a PhD Research Fellowship in Hydrology and Cryospheric Sciences Position as PhD Research fellow (Stipendiat SKO 1017) available at Department of Geosciences. The Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo comprises sections for Geology and Geophysics, Geography and Hydrology, Meteorology and Oceanography, Physics of Geological Processes and the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (Centre of Excellence). The academic staff consists of 40 professors and approximately 80 research fellows. For more information, seehttp://www.geo.uio.no<http://www.geo.uio.no/>. Job/ project description: The specific topic of the Thesis will be developed based on the successful applicants own interests and expertise, however it is expected to contribute to the general area of snow hydrology and fall within existing research programs. Within the research group several projects on snow hydrology are in progress including collaborative research between The University of Oslo (UiO) and the Northern Research Institute (Norut) and Statkraft. The successful applicant will be joining a group with research programs on Arctic and Alpine snow hydrology, including “Arctic Earth Observation and Surveillance Technologies”; a long-term project focusing on the development of new advanced technologies for Earth observation from both satellites and UAS. Regional studies focus on catchments in southern Norway and Svalbard using Structure-from-Motion (SfM) for snow characterization. Other activities are focused on process level modeling of atmosphere-cryosphere interaction and hydrologic sensitivities. 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. In addition to field deployments with the UAS, the candidate will have access to state-of-the-art hydrologic and snow modeling tools using linux on the ABEL supercomputing cluster at UiO (http://goo.gl/swdkeE). The ideal candidate will have experience with Python and/or C++ and knowledge of large data analysis and visualization tools. Those with a particular interest in the development of embedded devices such as rasberry-Pi and otherwise are particularly encouraged to apply. Within our group you can anticipate to work in a highly collaborative environment and participate in a wide array of activities related to land-atmosphere processes with an emphasis on the cryosphere. Requirements/qualifications: Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in hydrology, meteorology, or related with documented knowledge on hydrology, relevant for a PhD-study in the above mentioned specialties. Course work in physics and mathematics along with demonstrated excellence in programming skills and the ability to work in a highly team-oriented environment are required. You should be creative and innovative with good collaborative skills.The candidate should have a good process understanding of Earth System Science and be comfortable with modeling concepts and tools. We are seeking candidates with a strong background in quantitative methods and experience with physically-based hydrological or land surface modeling, including own programming. Demonstrated experience working with large data sets, with preference for C++, Python, or R is required, preferably with experience on linux clusters. The position as PhD Research fellow (Stipendiat SKO 1017) is intended as a four year term with teaching responsibilities. If two equal candidates are considered, preference may be given to one with a good knowledge of a Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish). With the teaching responsibilities, the fellowship will be for a period of up to 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at the Department of Geosciences). Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of up to 3 years, with no compulsory work. Starting date as soon as possible No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution. The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree. The fellowship requires admission to the research training program at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. An approved plan for the research training, including a project outline (made out in cooperation with Prof. Dr. J.F. Burkhart), must be submitted no later than two months after taking up the position, and the admission is to be approved within three months.
