European PhD Training Network encourages a new generation of climate scientists – apply now!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

There is a pressing need for skilled climate scientists with excellent insight into advanced mathematical theories as well as the physics of the Earth system. A European scientist training programme, CriticalEarth, is addressing the problem.

In the CriticalEarth scientist training programme 15 PhD international students will learn innovative mathematical approaches to solving the most pressing challenges of climate science today, through a network of 17 European research institutions.

The project is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Innovative Training Network, one of the most prestigious and competitive science programmes under the EU Horizon 2020 which fund it with more than 4 million Euros. All PhDs are being advertised on site.

The CriticalEarth project starts up in March 2021 and runs through a three-year period.


CriticalEarth (grant agreement 956170) is funded by the EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie
