Marine Geosciences (Ph.D.)

PhD (ISCED 2011 level 8)


Duration 8 semesters
Cost from $10,690 per year

Using the Eastern Mediterranean as a natural marine laboratory the program provides students with a unique opportunity to develop practical scientific experience at sea, together with a rigorous academic curriculum.
Recent significant deep-sea gas findings offshore Israel have prompted a period of unprecedented development and pose world-class scientific, technical and environmental challenges. These significant developments provide students with a wide range of career opportunities in disciplines such as exploration geophysics and environmental geology.

Candidates interested in doctoral studies may apply to the head of department or the relevant faculty member. Department pre-requisites are similar to the MSc program. Formal application will be submitted to the Graduate Studies Authority.
