Beasiswa S3: PhD Studentship Aquatic Biogeochemistry in Sweden
Sweden PhD Studentship in Aquatic Biogeochemistry, Uppsala University
PhD Student in aquatic biogeochemistry with focus on spatial and temporal dynamics of organic carbon export from soils to surface waters
The Department of Environmental Assessment is a centre for freshwater and forest soil research with a special focus on environmental monitoring and assessment. The department also performs teaching and gives expert support to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, SEPA. At present the department consists of some 65 employees; ca 25 of which are senior and post-doc scientists and some 10 PhD students. The department is divided into four research sections: geochemistry, biodiversity, organic environmental pollutants and modelling, and covers program areas such as (i) environmental monitoring and assessment, (ii) environmental pollutants, and (iii) integrated catchment monitoring. We now would like to enlarge our research group by announcing a Ph D Student position in aquatic biogeochemistry.
Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is a key determinant of water quality that is strongly influenced by climate. The doctoral student’s research will seek to bridge the gulf between a high-resolution, process oriented understanding of DOC’s terrestrial origins in the boreal forest, and long term, landscape scale monitoring data in order to better understand the implications of climate change for DOC in aquatic ecosystems. The project will create a model framework for upscaling from hillslope processes. Fieldwork on the Krycklan Catchment in Västerbotten will be used to test key hypotheses.
We seek for a dedicated candidate with a degree in environmental science or engineering. Specialization in biogeochemistry is desirable.
PhD study programmes leading to a doctorate include a minimum of four years of full-time studies after your undergraduate degree. To be admitted as a postgraduate student, you must already have a degree from at least a three-year university course.
