A new PhD candidate has been hired in the PaBas project, Siri Gloppen Gjersdal and will start in May.
We have opened a new PhD position in basin evolution, paleogeography and source to sink analysis of the upper Paleozoic succession in the Norwegian North Sea. This PhD will be funded by UiS the three first years and the last year by PaBas. The candidate is expected to start in the beginning of next year (2020).
Two master students have now joined our team; Sanja Jovanovic Lazarevic and David Rodriguez. They will work with tectonostratigraphic evolution of the Southern Viking Graben and Sørvestlandet High, focusing in the upper Paleozoic.
