The Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in numerical modeling of periglacial hydrology commencing 15.12.2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The deadline for applications is 23rd of October 2019 (year), 23:59 GMT +1.

Project description
The project will focus on hydrological connections and pathways from glacial through periglacial systems to periglacial surface waters. This will be done through site specific conceptual and numerical modeling, informed by available data from glacial and periglacial sites on Greenland. The PhD student will set up models for regional groundwater flow, focusing on flow in unconsolidated materials, using existing hydrological and cryo-hydrological modeling tools. The student will also take part in a mentoring program led by the industrial partners of CatchNet. The work might include visits to periglacial field sites in Greenland.

Description of the scientific environment
The Dept. of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management (IGN) has 400 employees and 25 full professors. It has a broad basis in ecology, nature management, geology and geography, and a strong research focus on climate and environment. IGN is host to the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM), a Center of Excellence financed by the Danish National Research Foundation, and with which the PhD student will also be affiliated. The PhD project is funded through the Catchment Transport and Cryo-Hydrology Network (CatchNet), and includes collaborations with partners in Canada, Sweden, and the U.S. CatchNet is funded by nuclear waste management organizations in five countries with the aim to better understand potential contaminant transport in future (100 000 – 1 000 000 years) cold climates, in a nuclear waste management perspective.

Principal supervisor is Associate Professor, Ylva Sjöberg, Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management.
