COGCI

3 new COGCI PhD-Stipends available


The PhD projects must be within the areas of climate and/or the environment and contain significant elements of global change. A further requirement is that the project must be of interest to one of the Natural Science Faculty institutes. Finally the project must be a true collaboration with one of the 3 sector research institutions DMI, GEUS or NERI. Successful applicants will be enrolled in the COGCI PhD-school. Possible projects and contact persons are listed below.

The applicants will be evaluated by a committee. According to the rules applicants will only see their own evaluation and not the names nor the evaluations of other applicants.

Salary is determined by the rules for PhD-stipends. According to these rules the PhD-student can be asked to teach or do other duties for a total of 840 hours. Paid work outside the PhD project requires special permission.

The application from can be downloaded from www.nat.ku.dk, where the general rules can also be found. The form can also be obtained from the Natural Science Faculty, Øster Voldgade 3, 1350 Copenhagen K., phone +45 35 32 42 10.

The application including attachments must be at the Natural Science Faculty, Øster Voldgade 3, 1350 Copenhagen K. no later than February the 8th, 2001 at noon. You must have finished your MSc at the time of application.
