Do you want to take part in shaping the future?PhD Research Fellow in hydrogeology
There is a vacancy for a PhD Research Fellow in hydrogeology at the Department of Earth Science to work on the quantification of global groundwater volumes. The position is for a fixed-term period of 3 years with the possibility of a 4 th year with compulsory other work (e.g. teaching duties at the Department).About the project/work tasks:
Groundwater is an important but vulnerable resource and plays a crucial role in many geological and environmental processes. One of the key unanswered questions in groundwater research is how much groundwater there is globally and how this is distributed spatially and with depth. In addition, it is unknown to what extent the global volume of groundwater has changed over geological timescales and how this has influenced processes like sea level change and the isotopic composition of oceans. The project aims to quantify the distribution of groundwater globally. Over the last few years, new datasets have become available that can help improve estimates of the global groundwater volume. The research fellow will compile and analyse porosity, lithological, sedimentological and geological data and combine these data with models that relate groundwater volume to lithology, stress, geological history and other factors.Qualifications and personal qualities:
Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized. Ambitions and potential will also count when evaluating the candidates.About the PhD position (applies to university PhD positions):
