There is a vacancy for a PhD position at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen, Norway within climate related statistical hydrological modelling. The position is for a fixed-term period of 4 years and is and is funded by the University of Bergen through the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research.

The PhD project aim to develop and apply a hydrological modelling tool which link century scale atmospheric reanalysis, century to millennia atmospheric climate modelling data and paleo flood archives in order to estimate regional flood probability changes back in time as well as into the future for different flood types in order to better quantify and understand changes in flood frequency in a changing climate. For such a tool to be usable on historical, paleo and future climate simulations, it needs to be forced with parameters that are regularly stored by groups doing these types of simulations and be able to incorporate multi-decadal to seasonal and short-term signals. As a result of these constraints, we envision the development of a data-driven system using computational statistics/machine learning techniques providing links between regional flood occurrences of different types of floods and large scale atmospheric information from reanalysis, long model simulations and paleo flood records. The system will be trained on instrumental streamflow records.

The PhD will be a part of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR) and the newly started Climate Hazards and Extremes (CHEX) project. BCCR is the largest climate research centre in the Nordic countries and among the leading centres in Europe. The working environment is highly international with around 200 scientists from 37 countries. As a PhD, you will also be part of the national research school on Changing Climates in the Coupled Earth System (CHESS), which offers a wide variety of PhD courses.

The application deadline is April 5th. For more details about the position, instructions on how to submit an application, and contact information, please see:
