Marie Curie Early Stage PhD Scholarship

University of Birmingham is seeking a highly motivated PhD students. The duration of this scholarship is 3 years. To be eligible, candidates must be European students. Applications are invited up to April 07, 2015.

- A Marie Curie Early Researcher position is available to carry out research on"Catchment-wide impacts of reactive hotspots and hot moments" within the Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie ITN HypoTRAIN (Hyporheic Zone Processes – A training network for enhancing the understanding of complex physical, chemical and biological process interactions).
- The candidate will combine cutting-edge integrated distributed sensor networks and smart tracing technologies with advanced numerical modeling approaches for identifying reactive hotspots and hot moments in hyporheic environments and quantifying their catchment wide biogeochemical and ecohydrological impact. The expected results are an integrated methodological approach combining FO-DTS for identification of hyporheic exchange flow patterns and smart tracers for quantification of microbial metabolic activity in identified hotspots and hot moments of hyporheic exchange; and a model-based up-scaling for quantifying the catchment wide relevance of hotspot / hot moment biogeochemical cycling. The PhD candidate will be supervised by Stefan Krause (University of Birmingham) and co-supervised by David Hannah (University of Birmingham) and Jesus Gomez (New Mexico Tech). The position will include several secondments to European and US collaborators.
Salary (which will be subject to UK taxation) will be at the rate of £ 31,944 per annum. This will be a fixed salary with no increments or pay awards for the duration of the post.
36 months.
Application Requirements
- Candidates should hold an MSc in Environmental Sciences, Hydrology, Geoecology, Ecohydrology, Biology, Civil Engineering or other closely related discipline.
- They should be able to communicate complex information clearly and be able to work independently.
