The POSEIDON project, part of the prestigious EU Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, is excited to announce 13 vacancies for Ph.D. researchers. This innovative project, titled "POSEIDON - Improving Offshore Infrastructure Resilience Against Geohazards in a Changing Climate," is funded by Horizon Europe (HORIZON) through the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Networks (MSCA-DN).
POSEIDON brings together 16 beneficiaries and partners from seven European countries: The Netherlands, Germany, France, Norway, Denmark, Italy, and the UK. This collaborative effort encompasses a comprehensive spectrum of training in both scientific and transferable skills. Key participating universities include the University of Twente, Christian-Albrechts-Universität, Universität Bremen, Institut Français de Recherche Pour l’Exploitation de la Mer, Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, Libera Università di Bolzano, Université de Bretagne Occidentale, OsloMet – Storbyuniversitetet, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, University of Warwick, and University of Liverpool. Industry partners are Cathie Associates, Optum Computational Engineering, State of the Art Engineering B.V., and DNV.
The project's mission is to conduct fundamental, multidisciplinary, and multisectoral research across various functional and operational scales. A significant focus is on understanding the complexities and nuances in the current designs of Offshore Critical Infrastructures (OCIs), including wind turbines, submarine pipelines, and cables. POSEIDON aims to deliver 13 professionally trained next-generation Doctoral Candidates (DCs) who will pioneer new methods to identify, map, assess, predict, and mitigate offshore geohazards. This groundbreaking work is essential for enhancing the resilience of current offshore infrastructure in the face of climate change.
More details on the PhD positions and the objectives can be found on the POSEIDON webpage.
