Deep Earth Systems PhD course just announced

Forging links between petrology and geophysics

04.05.2017 | Lara O'Dwyer Brown

The Earth System Petrology group is again offering its two-week intensive Ph.D. course in Deep Earth Systems (Forging links between petrology and geophysics) from 2 - 13 October, 2017. This Ph.D. course is designed for strengthening students' background in thermodynamics, phase equilibria, heat and mass transfer, continuum mechanics, elasticity and viscoelastic theory, wave propagation, and rheology, important for integrating petrologic and geophysical (especially seismological) observations, and modeling processes of the deep earth. The course will build a foundation of understanding based on first-principles that links the constitution of Earth materials to their stability and mechanical behavior, and reinforces these concepts through exercises, critical reviews of the literature and group projects. 

The Ph.D. course is team-taught by Aarhus faculty and invited experts in petrology, geophysics/seismology and geodynamics.

There are no tuition or registration fees. Students are, however, responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs. Once admitted to the course, local travel and accommodation details will be provided.

Applications must be received by 16th June, 2017.  Please refer to the course webpage for more information and application procedure: http://volcano.au.dk/deep-earth-systems-phd-course/

Please distribute this announcement to your peers and students.
