Phd and postdoc positions in Earth Sciences/Geophysics: 15 positions for the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) TOPOMOD "Sculpting the Earth's topography: insights from modelling deep–surface processes".
(Sculpting the Earth's topography: insights from modelling deep–surface
processes) is a Marie Curie Initial Training Networl in the 7th
Framework Programme of the European Commission. Its aim is research and
training to investigate and modeling origin and evolution of topography
of the continents over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. The
4-year project started on January 1, 2011. The network is coordinated by
the Department of Geology of the University "Roma TRE",
TOPOMOD network offer 13 Ph.D. and 2 post-doc positions in various
fields of Earths Sciences, combining geophysics, geochemistry, tectonics
and structural geology with advanced geodynamic modelling. The network
organizes yearly open research-and-training workshops and special
session at international meetings.Positions are available in 8 partner
institutions within Europe, including Italy (Università "Roma Tre"), the
Netherlands (VU-University Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Germany

of Cambridge), France (University of Rennes I). Spain (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Barcelona). The network is completed by the active collaboration of 1 research institution (CNR-Italy), 3 high-technology enterprises (Malvern Instruments, G.O. Logical Consulting, TNO) and 1 large multinational oil/gas company (ENI). The fellows will work in their host institute with tight collaboration with other partner institutes in the network.
TOPOMOD fellows receive a Marie Curie salary. Salaries are complemented by substantial support for mobility, career development and travel.
