30 PhD projects in the three branches Cosmos, Earth and Anthroposphere

The Vienna International School of Earth and Space Sciences (VISESS) is announcing more than 30 PhD projects in the three branches "Cosmos", "Earth" and "Anthroposphere" (see: https://visess.univie.ac.at).

The PhD positions will be hosted within the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy at the University of Vienna, in the framework of an exciting and new doctoral school. As humanity is facing grand challenges such as climate change and resource depletion, this new doctoral school is addressing these and other challenges through interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary academic research connecting the COSMOS with planet EARTH, it's environment and the ANTHROPOSPHERE. Our goal is for doctoral students to become world-leading experts in either of these three branches, and to 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.
