- Call for 2020 International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling
Outstanding young scientists with strong interest in climate research, especially in the study and the modeling of the Earth system are encouraged to apply by September 15. Our annual Call is aiming at students holding a Master’s degree (with written thesis) in physics, geophysical sciences (incl. meteorology and oceanography), chemistry, ecology, mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, or political science. Also students currently working on their MSc thesis are encouraged to apply. Doctoral positions are available starting March 2020. Individual starting agreements will be made with successful candidates. For each position funding of approximately EUR 1,650 monthly net payment (duration up to 3 years) is available through a doctoral contract. This amount is sufficient to cover all basic living expenses. The selection procedure includes an interview of short-listed candidates. Interviews are scheduled for the end of November.

- Imperial College London: President’s PhD Scholarships, 2019-20 academic year. If you are a high performing undergraduate or Master’s student and have a strong desire to undertake a PhD programme at a world class research institution, you could be selected to receive full tuition fees and a generous stipend for a PhD place at Imperial College London. The President’s PhD Scholarships aims to provide up to 50 research students with great potential the opportunity to work within their chosen research field with the support of an excellent supervisor.
- NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU): Division of Ocean Sciences
- MSc and PhD Positions in Marine Biogeochemistry, Oceanography and Climate at Dalhousie University. The Departments of Earth Sciences and Oceanography at Dalhousie University seek candidates for multiple, fully funded MSc and PhD projects on long-term climate impacts to the marine environment and fisheries ecology of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Potential projects range from late Holocene paleoceanographic reconstructions of temperature, nutrient cycling and fish abundance; analysis of historical marine climate variability; and predictive climate-biogeochemical-ecosystem modeling.These positions leverage significant investments in ocean science at Dalhousie through the recently established Ocean Frontier Institute. Students will have access to state-of-the-art analytical laboratories and high-performance computing, opportunities to participate in research cruises to the Northwest Atlantic, and exposure to internationally recognized expertise in marine science. Projects will have a significant outreach, education and advocacy component through interaction with government and NGO end-users. Prospective candidates should have completed an undergraduate degree (for MSc candidates) or masters degree or equivalent (for PhD candidates) with a minimum “A minus” average (GPA of 3.7 on a 4.3 scale). To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and academic transcripts to any of the following prospective supervisors:
Dr. Markus Kienast; Paleoceanography; firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Owen Sherwood; Isotope Biogeochemistry; email@example.com
Dr. Eric Oliver; Physical Oceanography; firstname.lastname@example.org
