PhD position summary/title: Open PhD: WETTEST – When an Exceptional Triassic climate change (CPE) Triggers plant Evolution in the (sub-) Tropics
Earth history is rich in examples of extreme climatic changes. The Carnian Pluvial Episode (CPE) ~234–232 Ma ago was one such event, which caused minor extinctions but major ecological changes, and initiated the evolution and radiation of modern plant families, including bennettitaleans, modern fern and conifer groups. In the SNF Joint project, various successions in the Dolomites, Julian and Carnic Alps, Switzerland and Northern Calcareous Alps will be investigated together with the Museum of Nature South Tyrol, Bozen/Bolzano, Italy. The multidisciplinary approach of the project includes revision of existing and newly collected plant macrofossils (Bozen/Bolzano) and high resolution qualitative and quantitative palynological studies (Zurich) of reference sections. The newly created data set will be used to analyze terrestrial ecosystem changes, patterns of plant evolution, radiation, and extinction in the tropical and subtropical belts of the northwestern Tethyan margin during the Carnian Pluvial Episode.
PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. Position in Classical Sinology
The Ph.D. project investigates the relationship between textual form and argumentation in early Chinese writings.
