The Netherlands Earth System Science Centre NESSC is still looking for 13 exciting and challenging PhD candidates for projects partly subsidised by the EU H2020 Marie S. Curie Cofund programme. Because of the European Cofund-financing, EU eligibility criteria will apply to a number of the positions, to be decided upon once all applications have been received.


NESSC brings scientists together with a background in physics, earth sciences, ecology and mathematics. The ideal candidates must be interested in climate research, are highly motivated to perform research in an excellent, exciting and international working environment, and are committed to a 4 year PhD track. They are excited about moving to the Netherlands and to perform a secondment at one of the NESSC COFUND Partner Organisations in the Netherlands or globally.

The PhD positions will be hosted at one of the NESSC research institutes in the Netherlands: Utrecht University, Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research NIOZ, Radboud University Nijmegen, VU University Amsterdam, and Wageningen University. Of the 13 available positions, 2 are based at the Department of Earth Sciences at Utrecht University and 2 at Department of Physics (Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research).
