  • 30,000–40,000 Euro/year (depending on host country), plus 700–1,000 Euro/month mobility allowance. 3 (or 4) year posts.
  • Based at one of 8 leading European universities or research centres (Technical University Delft and Wageningen University, The Netherlands; EAWAG, Switzerland; Henri-Tudor, Luxemburg; University of Coimbra, Portugal; Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany; University of Bristol and University of Sheffield, UK).
  • Candidates will be seconded to universities, companies andresearch centres throughout Europe during the project.
  • Closing dates 24 th July or mid-August, depending on the post.
  • For more information see www.quics.eu.

You would become part of the interdisciplinary Marie-Curie Initial Training network
QUICS “Quantifying Uncertainty in Integrated Catchment Studies”, where leading
engineers and scientists collaborate with private sector companies to train researchers capable of developing and implementing uncertainty management tools for the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The consortium will develop new uncertainty assessment tools that can be used in WFD implementation studies. The research will address uncertainty propagation at the spatial and temporal scales found in catchments and develop tools to reduce uncertainty by optimising sampling and monitoring and the objective selection of model structures. This will reduce uncertainty in model predictions and improve the quality of our surface waters, and reduce costs of implementing the WFD.
