3 PhD studentships to work with leading climate and machine learning scientists across Europe to tackle the issue of aerosol-cloud interactions
Admissions open now
iMIRACLI (innovative MachIne leaRning to constrain Aerosol-cloud CLimate Impacts) brings together leading climate and machine learning scientists across Europe with non-academic partners to educate a new generation of climate data scientists.
This EU funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) will fund 15 PhD students across Europe. They will develop maching learning solutions to deliver a breakthrough in climate research, by tracing and quantifying the impact of aerosol-cloud interactions from the microscale to large-scale climate.
Each student will have an interdisciplinary supervisory team, combining academic climate and machine learning supervisors as well as a non-academic advisor. International secondments to co-supervisors as well as to the non-academic partners will enrich student experience and training.
PhD students will begin their projects in September 2020, kicking off with a summer school held at Oxford.
This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860100.
Candidates must be Early-Stage Researchers (in the first four years of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree) and are required to undertake transnational mobility (move from one country to another).
Applications for studentships are open now. Applications at DLR are open until filled. Applications at UCL have an application deadline of 8 May 2020. All applications details are outlined on the iMIRACLI project webpage:
