The Department of Physics and technology announces a vacant Postdoctoral position in “Sea Ice Satellite Remote Sensing”.

The position is funded by the project “Sea Ice deformation and Snow for an Arctic in Transition (SIDRIFT)” through Research Council of Norway.

SIDRIFT will investigate the role of sea ice deformation and snow on ice in the changing Arctic climate. We will combine the historic and modern SAR data with high-resolution snow on sea ice models to estimate effects of the snow distribution on sea ice mass balance. The project is part of the international consortium of the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) and will provide a multitude of collaborations.

Location: Tromsø, Norway

Organisation: UiT the Arctic University of Norway, Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Physics and Technology

Duration: 2 years

Application deadline: 12 June 2019
