The Project FP7 People – Marie Curie Actions – ITN-2011, G.A. n.289976 “NEMOH - Numerical, Experimental and stochastic Modelling of vOlcanic processes and Hazard: an Initial Training Network for the next generation of European volcanologists” (www.nemoh-itn.eu), is opening 18 Marie Curie fellowship positions in Quantitative Volcanology for Early Stage Researchers. ESRs will be appointed at one of the Partner Institutions forming the NEMOH consortium, depending on the specific call. Individual calls are advertised and open from early 2012 until mid-2013 (from Euraxess: digit "NEMOH" in the search bar).
The next generation of European volcanologists must be capable of dealing with the quantitative approaches required by the growing challenges of modern volcano science and hazard forecasting aimed at risk evaluation and management. The NEMOH consortium aims to achieve this, by developing a unified Research Training environment through the integration of Institutions that play a leading European and world-wide role in volcano research, volcanic hazard forecasting, and management of volcanic crises. This training will be embedded in state-of-the-art research in volcanology, and is aimed at Early Stage Researchers (ESR). ESRs will take part in the scientific process of setting up and developing the most advanced experiments and physico-mathematical models in volcanology; will apply them to understand the dynamics and observations at active, potentially dangerous volcanoes; and will take part in the complex and delicate process of volcanic hazard evaluation and forecasting. Accordingly, candidates with a variety of backgrounds, including physics, mathematics, geology, engineering, etc., are invited to apply, depending on each individual call.
The NEMOH consortium comprises 9 European leading Institutions in Volcanology: INGV (www.ingv.it) in Italy; UCD (www.ucd.ie) in Ireland; DEES (www.uni-muenchen.de) in Germany; DESB (www.bris.ac.uk) and ULANC (www.lancs.ac.uk) in the United Kingdom; BSC (www.bsc.es) in Spain; IES (www.hi.is) in Iceland; BRGM (www.brgm.fr) in France; UNIGE (www.unige.ch) in Switzerland; plus 4 associated partners: DPC (www.protezionecivile.gov.it) and DMA (www.unipi.it) in Italy, and the two SMEs A&A (www.aspinall.com) in UK, and I2EM (www.in2earth.com) in Switzerland. Research Training is conceived to develop in the context of top level, internationally coordinated research structured in closely interconnected WorkPackages. Networking activities are of primary relevance, and include mandatory secondments, network schools, workshops, short courses, field exercises, dedicated sessions at international meetings, and final conference.
Candidates must meet the following requisites: 1) be of any nationality, but not having resided or carried out their main activity (job, studies, …), for more than 1 year in the past 3 years, in the country of appointment; 2) be within 4 years from the degree that in their country, or in the country of appointment, gives access to a PhD; 3) not having completed a PhD. Current PhD students can apply.
