Who We Are

An interdisciplinary hub for collaboration, innovation and training the next generation of polar researchers

Working out of the world's northernmost university, iC3 drives global efforts to quantify how ice sheets influence Earth´s carbon cycle, climate and ocean ecosystems in the past, present and future. As an interdisciplinary hub for collaboration, innovation and training the next generation of polar researchers, iC3 shapes the future of polar research.

Our team of leading scientists has access to world-class facilities including Arctic and Antarctic research stations, ice-going research vessels and in-house laboratory and modelling capacity. We work together across disciplines to answer some of the biggest questions in polar research and by innovating in novel technologies.

iC3 is based at the top university worldwide in terms of Arctic research output. Our centre is located on Tromsø Island, surrounded by mountains, glaciers and fjords, with daily flights to Svalbard. This creates unique opportunities for science, education and training on our doorstep.

We offer a friendly and supportive working environment to research fellows, postdoctoral researchers, PhD candidates and MSc and ERASMUS students who are passionate about polar science and share our commitment to teamwork and scientific excellence. Find out more about current opportunities within iC3 and subscribe to our email updates to get notified of new opportunities.

iC3 has ten-year core funding 2023-2033 from the Norwegian Research Council. It is a partnership of UiT The Arctic University of Norway, the Norwegian Polar Institute and NORCE.
