7 PhD Positions in Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems, Vienna University of Technology, Austria
The Centre for Water Resource Systems at the Vienna University of Technology announces competition for the third intake of doctoral candidates for the Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems. The programme is anticipated to host a total of 70 doctoral students over a period of 12 years. This is a dedicated programme of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) that promotes doctoral research and education at the highest standards and provides excellent opportunities for cross-disciplinary research. International networking is facilitated by a mobility programme with a spectrum of attractive international partner institutions and a comprehensive guest scientist programme.
Seven PhD student positions are available in the following research themes related to Water Resource Systems:

  • Flood-hydrology
  • Environmental economics
  • Aquatic microbiology
  • Environmental engineering
  • Micro-meteorology
  • Soil moisture remote sensing
  • Socio-hydrology
  • Mechanics of structures

Applicants must have a Master’s degree (or equivalent), preferably in a subject related to water resource systems. The working language of the programme is English. Students are expected to work across disciplines and in cooperation with others. A capacity and willingness to integrate and collaborate is essential.
The Programme provides a salary according to the FWF scheme (approx. EUR 20000/year net), together with health and social security benefits. There is also significant allowance for travel and research support. TU Wien is an equal opportunities employer. The preferred starting date is Oct. 1, 2016.
