European training Network for in situ imaGing of dynaMic processes in heterogeneous subsurfAce environments
The ENIGMA Innovative Training Network offers 3 PhD positions (see the list above) to talented and enthusiastic students holding a relevant Master degree (or equivalent) starting preferably before July 2017.
ENIGMA will train researchers in the development of innovative methods for exploring process dynamics in subsurface hydrosystems, in order to enhance understanding and predictive modelling capacities. ENIGMA is a consortium of high profile universities, research institutions and companies located in France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, USA and UK.
ENIGMA is seeking highly qualified and motivated students with a strong background in geophysics, hydrology, hydrogeology, hydrogeophysics, biogeochemistry, microbiology, soil physics or a related discipline.
The successful PhD candidates will conduct the research work in 2 or 3 institutions, in collaboration with industrial partners. She/he will have access to the most advanced field infrastructures across Europe and will beneficiate from the ITN resources to develop her/his research.
We are now inviting outstanding students to apply as PhD candidates!
Applicants should apply through the website with a motivation letter for up to 3 PhD topics (see website for further details), a CV with relevant documentation, and names of at least two referees.
