Postdoctoral Fellow in Geography

About the position

A temporary position is available at the Department of Geography as Postdoctoral Fellow in the field of glaciological and hydrological modelling in mountain environments for a period of 2 years. The position as a Postdoctoral Fellow is a fixed-term position with the primary goal of qualifying for work in professional academic positions.

The selected candidate will work with Physical and Human geographers to contribute to Departmental research on effects of climate change in natural environments and in society.

The project titled “Bracketing uncertainties in glacier melt impacts on hydrological systems in Europe and Central Asia as a means of reducing risks for society” aims to assess the responses of glacial and hydrological systems in northern and central Europe and Central Asia to the documented (past) and projected (future) climate change using high-complexity glacier and hydrological models and existing climate datasets from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP).

Job description

Some of the most dramatic impacts of global climate change occur in the cryosphere: glaciers retreat, sea ice and snow cover are reduced, and permafrost degrades. Although only a tiny fraction of land-ice cover is made up by mountain glaciers, they are critical reservoirs of fresh water in many highly populated regions on Earth such as Europe and Central Asia. In these regions, glacier-generated meltwater is a critical resource for hydropower, agriculture and the livelihood of millions of people downstream. Since the end of the Little Ice Age (1850 A.D.) a rapid retreat of glaciers has been observed in most regions on Earth, and future projections indicate the survival of only 1-20% of current ice volumes in Europe and 10-50% in central Asia by 2100 A.D.

This project aims to quantify the responses of glacial and hydrological systems to documented and anticipated future climate changes across three target regions, the European Alps, Scandinavia and Central Asia, and tease out the major climatic controls. In collaboration with international partners from the Central Asia Paleoglaciology Project , the MAGIC-DML project and the PalMod project, the Postdoctoral Fellow will set up glacier and hydrological models for selected, well-documented glacier catchments and river systems of principle importance for local communities in Scandinavia, central Europe and Central Asia.

The aim of numerical modelling experiments is to construct an envelope of probable and extreme scenarios and future trajectories for the changes in the cryosphere and hydrosphere. The candidate should also be willing to contribute to ongoing climate change research and teaching in the Department and work in close collaboration with international partners.

Qualification requirements

A postdoctoral research fellowships is a qualification position in which the main objective is qualification for work in academic positions. Completion of a Norwegian doctoral degree in Physical Geography or other relevant field or corresponding foreign doctoral degree recognized as equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree is required.

The appointment is to be made in accordance with the regulations in force concerning State Employees and Civil Servants and national guidelines for appointment as PhD, postdoctoral and research assistant

Other qualifications

  • Prior experience with numerical modelling, preferably in the fields of climatology, glaciology or hydrology.
  • Good written and oral skills in the English language and preferably in one of the Scandinavian languages.

  • Be able to communicate understanding of the Earth system processes
  • Have generally strong technical skills, particularly in programming and data analysis
  • Have demonstrated research independence, a solution-oriented attitude, and motivation to contribute to a good working environment at the Department

PhD position in English teachers’ professional development and multilingualism

About the position

A position as PhD fellow in English teachers’ professional development and multilingualism is available at the Department of Teacher Education. The successful candidate will be employed on the project Acquisition of English in the multilingual classroom funded by the Research Council of Norway. The post is a fixed-term position from 1 July 2019 for three years.

The project’s primary objective is to examine acquisition of English by multilingual language learners in Norwegian schools. The secondary objectives include examining the acquisition patterns of English L3 in Norwegian classrooms.

The main focus will be on language awareness and language development, in particular the contrastive/comparative elements between the learners’ L1 and English for both spoken and written language at different age groups/levels of proficiency. We will also define ‘standards’ or levels of what should be expected at the different levels of proficiency/ages to fulfil the learning outcomes in the curriculum for English. We will examine teachers and learners’ cognitive awareness of the language learning process and we will examine how students on the Master program in English education can best contribute to professional development and carry out their own research projects in multilingual classrooms. Read more about the project here.

The PhD fellow’s project and doctoral dissertation will focus on pedagogies for teaching multilingual learners of English, and how teachers use multilingualism as a resource in their teaching.

Job description

The PhD fellow will be responsible for the following tasks:

  • Collect and analyze data that consist of classroom/teaching materials, observations and recordings of classroom interaction between students and teacher, teaching methods and strategies, and interviews with teachers
  • Present project results at conferences and co-author reports and publications
  • The successful candidate is expected to join the existing research project and network and contribute to its development

The PhD fellow’s academic work is to result in a doctoral dissertation that will be defended at the Faculty with a view to obtaining the degree of PhD.

The successful candidate is obliged to follow the regulations that concern changes and developments within the discipline and/or the organizational changes concerning activities at NTNU.

Qualification requirements

The PhD-position’s main objective is to qualify for work in research positions. The qualification requirement is completion of a Master’s degree or second degree (equivalent to 120 credits) with a strong academic background in a relevant field or equivalent education with a grade of B or better in terms of NTNU’s grading scale. Applicants with no letter grades from previous studies must have an equally good academic foundation. Applicants who are unable to meet these criteria may be considered only if they can document that they are particularly suitable candidates for education leading to a PhD degree.
