Job description

We are looking for candidates for a PhD position in Geophysics at University of Roma Tre, Italy.
The research topic is the Constraints on crustal physical properties from joint inversion of multiple geophysical datasets. The main supervisor will be Prof. Fabio Cammarano (Roma Tre University).
The student will analyze and interpret seismic and gravity data sensitive to the crustal structure. The skills developed in the geophysical data analysis will then help to draw inferences on current thermo-chemical structure and evolution of the continental crust at the global scale.
This research proposal is part of a cooperation with Prof. Juan Carlos Afonso and Prof. van der Meijde at the University of Twente, The Netherlands, on the study of the crustal physical properties.
Applicants must hold a Master degree or equivalent in Earth sciences, geophysics, physics, or related disciplines. We are looking for candidates motivated to pursue an interdisciplinary project. The position is for 3 years and will be fully funded by the University of Roma Tre.

How to apply

Deadline for application is July 4th. The application for the doctoral scholarship competition must be submitted online at

Perspective candidates should contact, at their earliest convenience, Prof. Fabio Cammarano (Roma Tre University) by email: to get information on the procedure.
