Master Thesis: LAND-SEA INPUT OF RARE EARTH

Más información


The Institute of Marine Research (IIM-CSIC) offers a grant to perform your master thesis project in the following topic “Land-sea input of rare earth elements”.


Applicants must hold a first degree in Chemistry, Environmental Science, or similar (GPA ≥8) and should not have initiated the Master Thesis, but should be already enrolled in a master programme.


The scholarship will last for 6 months, with a monthly payment of 800€, to develop your Master Thesis Project with us, ideally between January and June 2021.


Candidates can apply from the 1st September until the 30th October 2020 (UTC +1). You can find details on the application procedure here.


Why the IIM-CSIC?


The IIM-CSIC is a very competitive host institution, one of the top marine research institutions in Spain and part of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the main research organisation in the country, third in Europe & seventh worldwide.


The Institute offers a lively and diverse research environment. During your stay with us, we offer a range of short training courses & regular seminars to help you develop your career and integrate in our community.


Why Rare-Earth Elements?


Rare earth elements (REEs) constitute a set of 17 elements widely used in our technological society. However, the environmental consequences of the anthropogenic increase of RREs in coastal systems are poorly understood. Our research group is interested on how anthropogenic inputs alter REEs concentration in the environment, and what are the consequences for their biochemical cycles and exchange processes, particularly at the land-sea interface.


The training plan will allow the successful candidate to develop skills for the whole process of scientific research, from literature review, sampling (if possible), sample & data processing and manuscript preparation (as co-author).
