For the second phase of NESSC there will be a total of 31 PhD positions, of which 13 will be partly funded through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND program. All PhD positions will be fully funded according to Dutch CAO for four years. The PhD positions will be hosted at one of the NESSC research institutes: Utrecht University, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Radboud University Nijmegen, VU University Amsterdam or Wageningen University. Currently we have 30 PhD positions available, focusing on climate research, to choose from. NESSC brings scientists together with a background in physics, earth sciences, ecology and mathematics. To better understand the processes behind climate change and to improve future climate projections and predictions.
NESSC offers young academics the opportunity to work on important scientific topics in not previously existing partnerships, and thus creates the conditions for innovative, groundbreaking and multidisciplinary research, including both experimental and theoretical approaches.
NESSC is a so-called Gravitation Program, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW). The programme is co-funded with a grant that has been awarded from the Europen Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme: the Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND program, grant agreement No 847504.
