Doctoral Research Project

Coupling of Hydrodynamics, Ecological and Fate Models

Project Description

The proposed research project will focus on model development and applications leading to an assessment of water and nutrient fluxes at continental scale. The following topics will be addressed:

  • Setting up a hydrological model both in terms of water quality and quantity at continental scale;
  • Impact of management strategies on water use, water resources and ecological quality;
  • Develop integrated approaches to water and ecosystems management and provide model based solutions to policy driven questions on impacts and changes arising from e.g. anthropogenic, rural development, land use
    and climatic forcing.
Qualifications

We are looking for enthusiastic candidates with a PhD degree (or a university degree and 5 years relevant research experience) in geosciences, environmental science with a strong expertise in biophysical modeling, and or in hydrological
surface and subsurface modeling. Strong experience in GIS and database management is required. Good communication, ability to take initiatives and to work in a team is required. Good knowledge of English.

Duration
