August 21-31, 2008
for application: 15 April, 2008
invite applications from PhD students (Master students and post-docs will be
considered if places are not filled by PhD) to the third EURISPET Seminar on
"Petrology of the lithosphere in extensional settings". EURISPET is a Marie Curie “Series of Events”
funded by the European Commission through the Sixth Framework Programme.
Period: August 21st (arrival) – August 31, 2008
Participants: The School is limited to 35 participants supported by
the EC (30 Early Stage Researchers – up to 4 years research activity including
PhD –, and 5 Experienced Researchers – up to 10 years research experience –),
with the possibility of other 5 participants attending on a self-funded basis.
The participants may come from any country worldwide, but a few conditions
exist to be eligible (see “eligibility” on http://www.eurispet.eu
addition, selection of participants will consider criteria of gender balance,
regional balance, quality of past research, student status (with preference for
PhD, post-doc) and knowledge of English.
Program: The School will consist of:
One day for student presentations to enable
participants to present and discuss their own research
5 days of formal lectures with world-known experts
One day of practical sessions in the laboratory
(petrography, microthermometric calculations, heating and cooling experiments,
Two days of excursions to the most important
xenolith-bearing alkali basaltic outcrops of the Pannonian Basin: 1 day in
Nógrád-Gömör (North Hungary) and 1 day in Bakony-Balaton Highland (central
One day on the Building the European Research Area: a
scientific career in Europe.
Topics covered in the Seminar will include: Introduction to
subduction, orogenesis and collapse; Microstructure and textural features of
granulite xenoliths; Partial melting and metasomatic events in the upper
mantle; Fluid, silicate and sulfide inclusions in the lithospheric mantle; Deep
seismics and seismology, deep lithospheric geophysical model; Deformation
analyses in mantle xenoliths.
