PhD student in Physical Geography - Mapping of Permafrost Landforms and Soils
Stockholm University, The Department of Physical Geography. Closing date: 5 February 2018.
The goal of this fully funded 4-year PhD project is to combine fieldwork and high resolution remote sensing to characterize and map landforms and soils of coastal permafrost stream catchments.
This position is announced within the European project Nunataryuk (see nunataryuk.org). Stockholm University is workpackage leader for terrestrial permafrost where one of the goals will be to characterize and map landforms and soils of small coastal permafrost stream catchments. Together with research from other Nunataryuk partners, these results will be used to quantify permafrost thaw-impacts on lateral fluxes of sediments, organic matter, nitrogen and contaminants into the aquatic realm.
It is meriting to have experience in GIS, remote sensing, soil science and geomorphology. Fieldwork experience or experience from working with Arctic environments is also meriting. The applicant should be able to deal with complex logistical issues, challenging field conditions and will spend a substantial amount of time abroad.
