We are hiring! Two postdoctoral fellowships now available

May 4th, 2024

We are looking for two new colleagues to join the friendly iC3 team in Tromsø, the capital of Arctic Norway, for three-year fixed term postdoctoral positions.

The Centre for ice, Cryosphere, Carbon and Climate (iC3) produces ground-breaking insights into how the links between ice sheets, carbon cycles and ocean ecosystems are impacting life on earth. 

Both postdoctoral fellowships are open to qualified applicants of all nationalities.

Postdoc #1: Antarctic ice, nutrients & diatoms 

Investigate how the Antarctic ice sheet impacts Southern Ocean plankton ecosystems and productivity. The applicant for this postdoctoral fellowship must have comprehensive experience in running and analysing numerical models, sufficient knowledge of programming languages like Fortran, Python, Matlab or equivalent, a strong publication track record including first author contributions, and documented fluency in English. Closing Date: June 5th, 2024.

Postdoc #2: Polar ice, fluid dynamics & carbon

Investigate how ice sheets impact fluid dynamics beyond present-day ice margins in Antarctica and/or Greenland and their potential impacts on ocean carbon cycling. The applicant for this position must document significant experience with seismic data processing and interpretation, as well as integrated geophysical and geological data analyses. Knowledge in geostatistics and numerical modeling would be highly beneficial, as would experience with fluid flow systems on continental margins and glacial dynamics. Closing Date: June 16th, 2024.


About the iC3 polar research centre

iC3 is based at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, the top university worldwide in terms of Arctic research output, and is partnered with the Norwegian Polar Institute and NORCE. Our team has access to world-class facilities including Arctic and Antarctic research stations, ice-going research vessels and in-house laboratory and modelling capacity.

We offer a friendly and supportive working environment to postdoctoral researchers who are passionate about polar science, have a strong work ethic, and share our commitment to teamwork and scientific excellence. Training and supporting the next generation of interdisciplinary polar scientists is a core part of our mission. iC3 has a dedicated mentorship and graduate training program. We actively help postdoctoral fellows to gain new skills, secure grant funding, get their research published, and build their professional networks.
