PhD Scholarship in Environmental Assessment of Biochar

A PhD scholarship is available at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The initial contract for this position is two years. The deadline for applying is December 27, 2018.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The goal of the project is to estimate the environmental impacts of biochar, when the biochar is used for wastewater treatment, in agriculture or for remediation of contaminated soil. Biochar is formed by heating biomass and can help to reduce the climate impact by sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into a solid material that can be used for various purposes, mainly in soils. The project is performed in a multidisciplinary collaboration with other reserarch organizations and companies.

Several alternative systems for production and use of biochar will be explored by modeling the mass and energy flows and comparing climate impact and other environmental impacts. You will examine the conditions and effects of production and use through various case studies.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
