About the position

We have a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Fellow (between 3 and 4 years in duration) at the Industrial Ecology Programme ( ) within the Department of Energy and Process Engineering.
The Postdoc position is part of a broader research effort on climate change mitigation at the Industrial Ecology Programme. The objective of the research is to assess aspects of negative emission technologies (NETs) with regards to the carbon sequestration potential, side effects and the associated uncertainties through the use of Earth system modelling. There will be a focus on ocean alkalinization, direct CO2 removal from seawater, and marine biomass for biochar / BECCS. The selected candidate will join a team of interdisciplinary researchers working on bridging engineering sciences with life cycle assessment and climate sciences.

The Industrial Ecology Programme (IndEcol) is an interdisciplinary research and teaching program, managing its own International MSc program. IndEcol is well recognized for its work in several areas including climate change mitigation and life-cycle assessment, as evidenced by numerous publications, and international prizes.

Current research activities are funded by national and European agencies, as well as industrial partners. There is a long tradition of working on both industrial and policy applications. Key staff currently serve as members of the IPCC, the UNEP Resource panel and UNEP/SETAC task forces.
The position will be financed by the H2020 project OceanNETs . OceanNETs will investigate the potentials and risks of proposed ocean-based NETs using a transdisciplinary research approach. The project aims to find out whether ocean-based NETs can play an essential and sustainable role in achieving climate neutrality.

The Head of Department is Terese Løvås. You will report to Helene Muri as the main supervisor and Anders Hammer Strømman as co-supervisor.
