[Met-jobs] PhD, Norway - Atmos. water transport

Date Thu, 18 Jun 2020 08:55:46 +0000

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD research fellowship position on transport modelling and climate studies at NILU – Norwegian Institute for Air Research in association with the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo (Norway) or the Geophysical Institute of the University of Bergen (Norway).


The full description for the open position can be found at:


The Arctic is warming faster than the global average (Arctic amplification). The mechanisms leading to this warming are not fully understood. In the course of this work we will investigate the role of the atmospheric transport of heat and moisture in the observed warming. The successful candidate will work with a international atmospheric transport modelling group, which is part of the Department of Atmospheric and Climate Research (ATMOS) of NILU and focuses on the development and maintenance of the Lagrangian Transport Model FLEXPART ( Our research has as one of its focus areas the understanding of transport of pollutants to the Arctic. In addition, we are addressing the transport of physical properties such as moisture and water content in air. For the latter, a strong collaboration with groups running the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM) has been established and will be relevant in the PhD project. The successful candidate will contribute to the following activities, although the precise tasks can be discussed further depending of the candidate’s interests:


##     Establishing climatologies of moisture transport in past and future climates

##     Investigating of heat transport into high latitudes and the Arctic

##     Modelling and model development with FLEXPART

##     Scientific data analysis, interpretation and publication of results


Applications should be sent through (ref. number 180244687) as soon as possible, and no later than 01.07.2020.
