15 PhD positions in Water Quality across Europe

The European Training Network Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the Catalan Institute for Water Research are offering 15 PhD positions in the project “inventWater: Inventive forecasting tools for adapting water quality management to a new climate”.

The water quality of rivers, lakes and reservoirs is severely affected by long-term climate change, extreme events, and weather variations. The EU-funded inventWater project will establish a platform that provides advanced cross-disciplinary training to the next-generation of water specialists. The project will offer training in data science, climate, hydrology, and freshwater ecology, focussing on the development and real-world application of inventive water quality predicting instruments that support fast and reliable decision-making and long-term adaptation policies. 

The PhD researcher will be hosted by one of 10 project beneficiaries: Catalan Institute for Water Research (Spain, coordinator), Aarhus University (Denmark), Dundalk Institute of Technology (Ireland), Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (Germany), International Institute for Applied System Analysis (Austria), Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum (Germany), The University of Stirling (UK), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), Wageningen University (The Netherlands), and University College Cork (Ireland).

Application deadline: 22 April 2021
