Please forward this information to students who might be interested in a PhD project on the PETM.
The project will investigate the effect of sea-surface and benthic temperatures on foraminiferal assemblages during the PETM. The student will
use outcrop samples from two locations (Kheu and Dzhengutay) in southern Russia. Both PETM sections are represented by shallow marine carbonates that
contain planktonic and benthic species of foraminifera.

The application deadline for this competition based PhD project is 8 January 2019.
