Global@Venice: a Marie Skłodowska-Curie - COFUND project
Boost your research career: 15 post-doc incoming fellowships are available
The “GLOBAL_AT_VENICE - Research and Training for Global Challenges” - G@V is a new 60-month Fellowship Project to offer a truly international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral training to 15 Fellows coming from all over the world.
Two international calls have been launched from 2021 to recruit brilliant researchers, who will have the chance to work for 24 months on one or more of the six multidisciplinary research areas of Ca’ Foscari Research Hub for Global Challenges.
The programme is jointly funded by the European Union (Grant Agreement no. 945361) and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme and is implemented together with an innovation ecosystem of 28 strategic partners, where fellows will have the opportunity to do secondment or research and training activity.
In Antarctica, the second drilling campaign of the Beyond EPICA - Oldest Ice project has been successfully completed. This project is an unprecedented challenge for paleoclimatology studies and its goal is to go back 1.5 million years in time to reconstruct past temperatures and greenhouse gas concentrations through the analysis of an ice core extracted from the depths of the ice sheet.
