The position is connected to the project “Offshore Mid-Norway: Integrated Margin and Basin Studies (OMNIS)” funded by the Research Council of Norway (NFR) under the PETROMAKS programme. OMNIS is an interdisciplinary strategic research project aimed at understanding fundamental geological processes that led to the formation of sedimentary basins and the continental margin offshore mid-Norway. The new knowledge will be used to reduce hydrocarbon exploration risk in the challenging Norwegian Sea province. The project involves integrated geological, geophysical, numerical and analogue model studies. The focus is on five work packages defined in the project, encompassing northeast Atlantic plate tectonics, basin processes, breakup magmatism, geodynamic modeling, and integration.
-Applicants must hold a masters degree in geology/geophysics or a related field. -The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree. -The fellowship requires admission to the research training programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. -Firstly, the applicants must have obtained undergraduate (Cand.mag., i.e. B.Sc. level) and postgraduate (Cand.Scient., M.Sc., or Siv.ing., i.e. M.Sc. level) qualifications. This represents approximately five years of full time studies after completion of European Upper Secondary School/International Baccalaureate.
