• Scholarship for doing the doctoral thesis on IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE COAST at University of the Balearic Islands

The Research Group of Sea Level and Climate at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA), together with the group of the Economic Analysis of the Impacts of Tourism at the UIB offer a pre-doctoral contract associated with the research project “Environmental Impacts and economic of climate change on coastal and Spanish ports “(reference CGL2014-54246-C2-1-R). 

The aim of the project is to quantify the physical, environmental and economic impacts on the Spanish coast, from a multidisciplinary perspective involving climate scientists, economists and engineers, as well as the social partners involved. In this framework, the thesis will focus on analyzing the impact of rising sea levels and changes in waves on beaches and coasts from climate numerical simulations. Also it included in the work an approach to assessing the economic impacts of climate change.

The candidate must have a master’s degree in physics, mathematics, engineering, marine science or equivalent. The possibility of additional training in economics will be offered. 

The Group Sea Level and Climate IMEDEA ( has a long experience in marine research, reflected in successful competitive projects and its history of scientific publications and presentations at conferences, as well as a high degree of internationalization.
