PhD Scholarship in Environmental Sustainability Assessment for The Aeronautics Sector Focus on Water Footprint Methodology

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position. Potential candidates should apply before June 26, 2019.

The Quantitative Sustainability Assessment (QSA) group in the Sustainability Division of DTU department of Technology, Management and Economics (DTU Management) covers research and development of scientifically based engineering methods and tools for decision support for environmental and social sustainability. We invite applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship in the field of Environmental Sustainability Assessment with particular focus on developing a methodology for quantifying freshwater impacts through the life cycle of aircrafts.

The project is positioned within environmental sustainability assessment catered to the needs of the aeronautics sector. It will rely on the field of life cycle assessment, in particular the subfields of life cycle impact assessment and life cycle inventory, for its method development part, with the sector of aeronautics as specific application field.

The project aims to develop a consistent methodology for calculating the "water footprint" of an aircraft that is all impacts exerted by the aircraft product system (life cycle) on freshwater (regarded as a resource, material and emission) and its subsequent damages to ecosystems, human health and natural resources. Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.
