PhD Programme in Science and Management of Climate Change (4
years) CALL FOR APPLICATIONS A.Y. 2017-2018
The PhD Programme in Science and Management of Climate Change,
jointly organized by:
- Ca' Foscari University of Venice UNIVE
- Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change CMCC
- National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics OGS
is an integrated, multi-disciplinary frontier research center for
understanding, controlling and adapting to Climate Change.
The Call for Applications for the academic year 2017/2018 will close
on April 27th, 2017, h. 1 pm CEST
The main objectives of this PhD Programme are to provide the job
market with experts with a broad, in-depth, scientific and
socio-economic background, as well as with a sound and innovative
research experience focusing on the dynamics of climate change, the
design and execution of numerical and mathematical models of the
climate and the economy, the methodologies and techniques for
evaluation, management and assessment, in terms of mitigation and
adaptation measures and policies.
Students gain in-depth understanding of climate processes and their
interactions, ranging from the molecular to the global scale and
from short-term phenomena to changes over millions of years. They
will be prepared to understand the impacts of current changes in
climate as well as the mitigation and adaptation policies put in
All this gives to outstanding young scientists a deep scientific
knowledge and personal skills to take leadership roles in academia,
in consulting firms, as well as in the energy and insurance sectors,
in public administration positions and in the private sector.
Our final goal is to provide the people, products, policy and
leadership to confront the challenge of climate change at a global
scale, creating new opportunities for innovators to shape the
world’s next economy Organisation of the PhD Programme
The Programme is organised in two Streams:
·Dynamic climatology, at CMCC in Bologna
·Climate change impact and management, at the Department of
Economics of the University Ca’ Foscari in Venice
The programme, taught in English, lasts for four years.
Twelve courses are planned for the first academic year, in order to
provide students with the state of the art of the scientific
findings related to the two disciplinary streams.
Courses details available at the web page http://www.unive.it/data/7886/
Common activities offers tools to build a sound scientific,
managerial and economic base for the general comprehension of the
broader theme of climate change, with the opportunity for in depth
studies of specific issues and for experiencing a multidisciplinary
Second and third years are aimed at providing the PhD candidates
with an experience of research in a foreign institution, while the
fourth year is mainly devoted to the preparation of the thesis which
will be externally reviewed by international referees.
Please forward to anyone who may be
interested. Apologies for cross posting.
