- Graduate Position
Two PhD positions in glaciology/geomorphology and remote sensing are available at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland. They are part of the “Global assessment of glacier-landslide interactions and associated geo-hazards” project funded by the Polish National Science Centre. In this research, we focus on glacier-landslide interactions and associated hazards. We will investigate how landslides impact glacier dynamics by delivering large quantities of debris onto their surface, which can be one of the potential causes of glacier instability.
We offer two 4-year PhD full-time positions (with internal evaluation after the second year) starting on 1 October 2023 at the earliest. The scholarship funded from the project is 5000 PLN gross per month (about 3700 PLN net per month) for 48 months. PhD candidates will be enrolled at Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) Doctoral School of Natural Sciences (https://phdstudies.amu.edu.pl/snp/?lang=en), which provides education, contact with other PhD students and opportunities to gain additional skills (courses are taught in English). The successful applicant will join the Faculty of Geographical and Geological Sciences at Adam Mickiewicz University in Pozna?, Poland (wngig.amu.edu.pl). Our Faculty is located just next to the AMU Sports Centre (swimming pool, sports halls, gym), and neighbouring parks and communal forests offer perfect opportunities for walking/running – so there is plenty of options for recreation during breaks or after work. Full research training will be provided in appropriate techniques (remote sensing, GIS, numerical modelling, field surveys) depending on the students interests and needs.
We invite applications from candidates interested in glaciology, remote sensing, GIS and geomorphology. Applicants must hold a Master’s degree at the time of document submission. Demonstrated experience in working with remote sensing data and GIS is preferred. Additional knowledge of glacial geomorphology, glaciology, or previous field experience will be a further advantage. The successful applicants must be able to work independently and in a structured manner and demonstrate good collaborative skills.
Application deadline: 14 July 2023
