PhD projects, open calls
PhD student offers, in the framework of the PALADYN-ERC project. Open call during 2021-22, for the following topics:
- Biogeochemistry of pyrogenic carbon in the ocean. The aim of the project is to study the source and deep ocean fate of biomass burning aerosols from wildfires in tropical Africa and South America, and quantify their contribution to the marine carbon cycle. The data generated will be used towards the development of a biogeochemical model and the appraisal of pyrogenic carbon as a proxy in paleoclimate research.
Applicants should have a background in either/or analytical chemistry/environmental science/oceanography at BSc or MSc level: and availability to undertake oceanographic fieldwork.
- Palaeoclimate reconstruction of global atmospheric circulation in episodes of extreme climate. The aim of the project is to understand the dynamics and patterns of variability of the global atmosphere during episodes of extreme climates, with a focus on the tropics and shifts in the hydrological cycle. The work will focus on the geochemical characterization of deep sea sediment cores spanning thousands to millions of years.
Applicants should have a background in the Earth, Environmental or Chemical sciences at BSc or MSc level: and availability to undertake oceanographic fieldwork.
The application should include the CV, a statement of interest and the names and contact details of two references.
