PhD Research Fellow in Physical Oceanography 497 views

The Department of Geosciences at University of Oslo (UiO) is offering a position as PhD Research Fellow in Physical Oceanography. The fellowship has a preferred start up in August-October 2021 and lasts for a period of 3 years.

About the research:
  • The project, funded by the Research Council of Norway, aims to improve our understanding of and ability to model the ocean circulation in the Arctic.
  • A key premise is that currents in this climate-sensitive ocean region are strongly guided by bottom topography—more so than in most other places on the planet.
  • The PhD student will work on:
  • improving the representation of topographic effects on hydrodynamic instability (baroclinic and barotropic instability) and eddy mixing, and/or
  • incorporating the effects of eddy mixing on the large-scale hydrography and currents in the Arctic.
  • The work will involve analyses of both eddy-resolving numerical model simulations and observational data, all in the context of simplified theory.


  • Candidate must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in physical oceanography or meteorology.
  • Foreign completed degree (M.Sc.-level) corresponding to a minimum of four years in the Norwegian educational system

How to apply:

Apply online and the application must include:

  • Cover letter – statement of motivation and research interests
  • CV (summarizing education, positions and academic experience, scientific publications etc)
  • Copies of the original Bachelor and Master’s degree diploma, transcripts of records
  • Documentation of English proficiency
