PhD Scholarship Position in Aquatic Biogeochemistry at Uppsala University

Uppsala University, Sweden is offering PhD position in environmental sciences. The funds for this position are available for four years. Applications should be sent before January 27, 2019.

Project description: The successful candidate will work in a project that investigates the links between sediment and methane emission in river systems. Methane emission from inland waters is extremely heterogeneous in time and space, and at present, the magnitude and dynamics of methane emission cannot be confidently predicted at large spatial scales. This project aims at integrating landscape-scale drivers of sediment transport and deposition (geomorphology) with biogeochemical and physical knowledge on methane production and emission. The project combines empirical methods (field measurements and lab experiments) with modelling that integrates process understanding. The project is financed by the Swedish Research Council.

Qualifications required: To be eligible for a PhD-student position the applicant must hold a master degree (or equivalent) in Environmental Science, Limnology, Environmental Engineering or another relevant field. Knowledge of both empirical work (fieldwork, lab experiments) as well as modelling. Candidates must be able to express themselves fluently in spoken as well as written English.

Position: The graduate program covers four years of full-time study. The position can be combined with teaching or other duties at the department (maximum 20%), which prolongs the employment with the corresponding time. The salary will be set according to local agreements. Rules governing PhD candidates are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance Chapter 5, 1-7 and in Uppsala university’s rules and guidelines More information about postgraduate studies at Uppsala University is available at
