The University of Tromso (UiT) the Arctic University of Norway invites applications for the position of PhD researcher in biological oceanography. This full-time, four-year position will be located in Tromso, Norway.

The PhD candidate will work with marine time series from Svalbard with a special focus on biological processes in a seasonal perspective and processes regulated by light. An important element of the work will be to collate, compare, and analyze the time series measurements in relation to in situ measurements of light from ice-tethered platforms currently developed and deployed through the Arctic ABC program, a program to design autonomous drifting observatories to be deployed in Arctic ice-covered waters. The candidate will be involved in designing and performing experiments to map how a wide range of Arctic organisms respond to artificial light (light pollution).

The successful applicant must have a MSc or equivalent in Marine Ecology, knowledge and/or experience in working with and analyzing light and/or light measurements or bioacoustics. The applicant must have fluent command of English, both written and verbal. Proficiency in Norwegian or a Scandinavian language is an advantage. Experience with polar regions, Matlab and Echoview, and collating and analyzing large data sets is also advantageous.

Applications must include:

  • Letter of application;
  • Curriculum vitae containing a complete overview of education, supervised professional training, and professional work;
  • Diploma and transcript from your Bachelor's degree or equivalent;
  • Diploma and transcript from your Master's degree or equivalent;
