Norway: PhD Positions in Physics, Trondheim University

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


As part of an international project, a state-of-the-art mm-wave
radiometer has been deployed at Troll station, Antarctica to measure
the effect of energetic particle bombardment on the atmosphere in the
polar regions. We seek a PhD level student
to work with this radiometer in order to derive vertical profiles of
minor species, including ozone, affected by particle precipitation, and
to examine the effects on the chemistry and dynamics of the middle
atmosphere between 30 and 90 km.

The student should have a degree
in Physics, Geophysics, Chemistry or a closely related field. They
should have computer experience, and knowledge of a programming language
and experience with packages such as MATLAB would be an advantage. Good
communication skills and the ability to work with international
partners is essential.

For further information about the position, please contact Professor
Patrick Espy, phone +47 73 55 10 95, e-mail: patrick.espy[ at ]
