2 PhD positions at the Vienna International School of Earth and Space Sciences

The ‘Vienna International School of Earth and Space Sciences’ (VISESS) is soliciting applications for PhD positions within the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy at the University of Vienna. The school is currently announcing 2 PhD projects in the branches ‘Cosmos’ and ‘Earth’ (see: https://visess.univie.ac.at/how-to-apply/).

As humanity is facing grand challenges such as climate change and resource depletion, this doctoral school at the University of Vienna is addressing these and other challenges through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary academic research connecting the COSMOS with planet EARTH, it’s environment and the ANTHROPOSPHERE. We aim our students to become world-leading experts in either of these three branches while also confidently communicate and contribute across all three branches. We want our school to become a central place in the heart of Europe for training and as a resource of knowledge about our place in space and time.
