PhD Project Description
The goal is to combine fieldwork and high resolution remote sensing to characterize and map landforms and soils of coastal permafrost stream catchments.
This position is announced within the European project Nunataryuk (see nunataryuk.org). Stockholm University is workpackage leader for terrestrial permafrost where one of the goals will be to characterize and map landforms and soils of small coastal permafrost stream catchments. Together with research from other Nunataryuk partners, these results will be used to quantify permafrost thaw-impacts on lateral fluxes of sediments, organic matter, nitrogen and contaminants into the aquatic realm.
Applicant Minimum Requirements / Skills

- Experience in remote sensing;
- Experience in soil science;
- Experience in geomorphology;
- Fieldwork experience or experience from working with Arctic environments. Ability to deal with complex logistical issues, challenging field conditions; and
- Will have to spend a substantial amount of time abroad
