Norwegian Research School for Dynamics and Evolution of Earth and Planets (DEEP)

DEEP is a national research school in geosciences for dynamics and evolution of earth and planets. DEEP aims to educate solid earth and planetary scientists in a holistic way, placing the Earth's structure and evolution in a comparative planetology perspective.

DEEP does not employ PhD students directly, but any PhD student enrolled at one of the partner universities and working on DEEP relevant topics can be member of the school. We provide courses, seminars and other benefits.
