Current vacancies

Postdoctoral Fellow in Paleoclimatology, Stockholm University. Deadline 14 February 2020.


This project seeks to reconstruct past changes in storminess on Holocene timescales using coastal dune systems and peatland archives. We aim to build a transect along the western coasts of Ireland, Scotland and the Faroe Islands. The goal of this work is to compile these new sites together with available paleostorm records in the region in order to (i) chart past changes in the North Atlantic storm track and (ii) identify internal and external drivers of storminess. The project is hosted at Stockholm University but includes key collaborators at Lund University and Umeå University in Sweden as well as the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.


Further information about the position can be obtained from the projoct leader and associate professor Malin Kylander: malin.kylander@geo.su.se.
