The Soil and Water Management Division at KU Leuven is inviting applications for a PhD fellow. The division conducts basic and applied research on the bioavailability of macro and micronutrients and toxic elements, in soils and in the aquatic environment.
About the Project:
- The objective of this project is to estimate the natural fraction of that process, i.e. the pre-anthropogenic concentration range or P in surface water of Flanders. In addition, this project wants to quantify the role of human development on the current P concentration range.
- Candidate must be an enthusiastic PhD student to work in an FWO collaborative project between soil scientists and archaeologists on the identification of pristine (natural, pre-anthropogenic) backgrounds.
- Candidate must hold an M.Sc degree (at the start of the contract) that ensures appropriate knowledge in analytical and environmental chemistry and earth sciences.
- Experience in field sampling, working with GIS software and geochemical speciation programs is not necessary but can be helpful.
- Applicant must possess excellent written and spoken English skills.
The application material should include:
- Letter of motivation
- Copies of university and high school degrees (including grades)
- Either two letters of recommendation or contact information or two people that can be contacted for reference.
