We are looking to recruit talented students from across a range of
science and maths disciplines.

MEDGATE is an EU-funded project which will support 9 PhD students and
a post-doc.

The aim of the research is to reconstruct past flow patterns through
the two marine gateways that linked the Mediterranean and Atlantic
before the Strait of Gibraltar formed ~5 million years ago.
MEDGATE is a multidisciplinary research project involving geochemistry,
sedimentology, micropalaeontology, numerical modelling and
seismic interpretation.

All successful applicants will undertake fieldwork in Spain and Morocco
and receive unparalleled technical and transferable skills training
equipping them for careers in both academia and the hydrocarbon
industry. The salary package is frankly amazing.
