The Doctoral Program for PhD students in Earth Sciences is operated by the CUSO and includes spezialized advanced courses, and field trips. The objective is to foster scientific quality, creativity, and communication within the scientific community as well as with the professional world. Further the programs seek to promote student’s general ability to deal with challenges in contemporary academic, administrative, and business environments, as well as enhance collaboration and synergies between the research groups of the CUSO sites.

Presently two doctoral programs are available in the frame of the CUSO:
