EU Erasmus-Mundus PhD Studentships

Simon Carr
Dear Cryolisters,

Please bring the following PhD studentship programme to the attention of anyone looking for a funded PhD programme in glaciology, glacial sedimentology, geomorphology or river science. I have listed the three potential projects that may be of most interest to those of a glacial nature.

----  SMART:  PhD fellowship for interdisciplinary research in River Science ------

Call for application:

Deadline for applications
January 9, 2012.

SMART is a 3-years Joint PhD programme offered in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus action by the University of Trento (Italy), Queen Mary, University of London (UK) and the Free University of Berlin (Germany), together with 12 associate partners in 8 different countries and 4 continents, encompassing research centres, private companies and governmental agencies.

Research is multidisciplinary-based at a principal institution with mandatory mobility to a second Consortium partner and one Associate partner. It focuses on the core areas of natural and engineering sciences relevant to the sustainable management of river systems from their headwaters to estuaries, including moprhodynamics, hydrology, biogeochemistry, geomorphology, biology and ecology.

Admission is on a selective basis; successful completion of the PhD programme will be awarded a joint or double Doctoral Degree in River Science.

Further details are available on

  • Isotopic, chemical and physical characterization of the Presena glacier and of the Noce River basin
  • Climate Sensitivity of the Presena glacier
  • Dynamics of hydropeaking in alpine river systems under scenarios of climate change
