The Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM) aims to train the next generation of researchers in marine sciences to build the future we imagine for our oceans. These PhD fellowships will be funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through a predoctoral call ('Ayudas para contratos predoctorales para la formación de doctores 2022').

Interested candidates can only apply to one of the following projects, and it is highly recommended that they contact the researcher in charge before submitting the application:

  • Elucidating the Southern Ocean Control of Atmospheric CO2 using a Selection of paleo-archives and proxies (ESCACS) (Reference: PID2021-122451OB-I00, PI: Carles Pelejero and Eva Calvo)
  • MIcrobial COLonization of Ocean paRticles: from mechanistic understanding to global patterns (MICOLOR) (Reference: PID2021-125469NB-C3, PI: Josep M. Gasol, Marta Sebastián, Olga Sánchez and Laura Alonso-Sáez)
  • Connectivity of particle-attached prokaryotes across continental margins and their potential use as particle source and organic carbon degradation proxies (CONPART) (Reference: CEX2019-000928-S-20-2, PI: Viena Puigcorbé and Pere Puig)
  • Application of the Multifractal Theory of Turbulence to the understanding of the flux of energy between scales in the upper ocean (Reference: PID2021-123457OB-C2, PI: Jordi Isern-Fontanet and Lionel Renault)
