Two PhD positions as part of synergy grant ice2ice

There are two PhD projects available within the community of ice2ice, who are working on changes in how sea ice influences climate and icesheets and vice verse. Both positions are placed in Bergen, Norway at the Bjeknes centre for climate research. One is focusing on developing a detailed chronology and synchronizing climatic time series between marine and ice core records through tephra studies, the other on climate dynamics and the interactions between the marine terminating ice caps, ocean circulation and Arctic sea ice.

Deadline for the application(s) is May 16th, 2017.

About the project/work tasks:
The successful candidates will be part of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (http://www.bjerknes.uib.no) and the ERC project ice2ice.

The ice2ice project (Arctic Sea Ice and Greenland Ice Sheet Sensitivity) is an ERC funded synergy project jointly run by the University of Bergen, the University of Copenhagen (http://www.iceandclimate.nbi.ku.dk), UNI Research Climate (http://uni.no/en/uni-klima), and the Danish Meteorological Institute.

The focus of ice2ice is to investigate the cause and future implications of past abrupt changes in Arctic sea ice and climate on the Greenland ice sheet.
The PhD project will be designed based on the candidates background.

Position 1
https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/137547/phd-position-in-climate-dynamics-paleo-climate-at-the-department-of-earth-science

The position will focus on developing a detailed chronology and synchronizing climatic time series between marine and ice core records through tephra studies.

The work will contribute to the understanding of the stability of Arctic sea ice during cold climates of the past as well as future warm climates.

Position 2
https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/137542/phd-position-in-climate-dynamics-at-the-department-of-earth-science

The position will focus on climate dynamics and the interactions between the marine terminating ice caps, ocean circulation and Arctic sea ice.

The work will contribute to the understanding of the stability of Arctic sea ice during cold climates of the past as well as future warm climates.
