EU Marie Curie
Initial Training Network:
IMVUL – ‘Towards improved
Groundwater Vulnerability Assessment’
CALL FOR OPEN RESEARCH POSITIONS
IMVUL is a network of 8 partners throughout Europe whose aim is to train
researchers in the major issues, scientific challenges and operational problems of
groundwater vulnerability through individual research.
Posts are available for Early Stage Researchers (Ph.D. student
positions) and Experienced Researchers (post-doctoral positions).
PhD positions are for 36 months and postdoctoral positions for 24
month duration. These are salaried positions with salaries (subject to
county correction factors) of Euros 34,500 for PhD positions and Euros
53,000 for postdoctoral positions.
Research projects focus on aspects of groundwater vulnerability and fall into three main
categories: field based aquifer case studies, laboratory-based research and
theoretical/modelling techniques. Network researchers will also participate in a range of
courses, summer schools, workshops, work experience placements in industry and take
part in annual meetings as part of the network’s activities. See the following list of projects
for more information.
Eligibility: To be eligible for these positions you must have a degree in a geological or
related science which you obtained no more than 4 years ago (for PhD projects) or 5
years ago (for postdoctoral positions), and not have been resident in the host country for
more than 12 months in the past 3 years. The network encourages particularly
researchers from Eastern Europe and women to apply.
Send a CV, statement of motivation (one A4 side) and references as soon as
possible by e-mail to the relevant contact person. It is expected that initial posts
will be filled in September 2008. The IMVUL network is committed to equal
opportunities and diversity in employment.
List of Projects:
11 PhD positions and 3 postdoctoral positions are
available. See below for titles with contact details and
web addresses for further information.
