The Arctic Gateway

Stockholm university

Stockholm University has two vacancies for PhD students for the PAGE 21 project. Both positions are in Physical Geography at the Department of Physical Geography and Quaternary Geology.

  • The first position is within the topic "Age, net accumulation and degree of decomposition of the Eurasian permafrost carbon pool."
  • The second one is within the topic "High-resolution mapping of soil organic matter storage and remobilization potential in periglacial landscapes."

Deadline for both positions is November 20th.

PAGE21 will aim to understand and quantify the vulnerability of permafrost environments to a changing global climate, and to investigate the feedback mechanisms associated with increasing greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost zones. This research will make use of a unique set of Arctic permafrost investigations performed at stations that span the full range of Arctic bioclimatic zones. The project will bring together the best European permafrost researchers and eminent scientists
from Canada, Russia, the USA, and Japan.
