DEEPICE project has officially started on the 1st of January 2021 – recruitement period now opened!

The recruitment period is now opened and we are looking for 15 early-stage researches to join this exciting project!

To know more about the 15 PhD positions we offer, visit the PhD projects page.

DEEPICE aims to train a new generation of scientists working on issues related to past climate change in Antarctica by taking advantage of the unique scientific dynamic of the on-going EU H2020 “Beyond EPICA-Oldest Ice Core” project (2019-2025) which aims at extracting a 1.5 million years old ice core in Antarctica.

DEEPICE consortiums gathers complementary expertise in basic techniques and instrumentation in ice core and snow science, statistics as well as glaciological and climatic modeling. Not only the ESRs will acquire essential core skills in these scientific and technical fields, but they will also develop a wide range of soft skills (e. g. communication and outreach, team-building, networking, management skills) fostering their career perspectives. Thus, after having completed the DEEPICE research and training programs, the 15 ESRs will be fully equipped for engaging in academic and non-academic careers related to glaciology, climate change, geophysics and instrumentation in geosciences.

Conditions for applying

The candidates applying for these positions can have any nationality but must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date in the country of the institution where they apply.

Besides, to be eligible, the candidates must, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, be in the first four years of their research careers and must not yet have been awarded a title of PhD.

DEEPICE is a Horizon 2020 project, part of the Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) – Innovative Training Network (ITN)
