Instituto Dom Luiz is pleased to announce the opening of 8 Earthsystems PhD Grants (valid applications from 4th December 2017 to 5th January 2018).

The EARTHSYSTEMS program gathers a multidisciplinary group of geophysicists, meteorologists, oceanographers, geodesists, geologists, geochemists, biologists and statisticians, based at the University of Lisbon (UL) and at the Portuguese Institute for the Atmosphere and Ocean (IPMA), with a common interest in Earth processes: their control of Climate in different time scales; their influence on natural resources distribution and characteristics; their effect on major natural hazards; and their impact on sustainable development.
