Doctoral Researcher (f/m) Research Training Group (RTG) "Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling"
German Universities of Tübingen, Hohenheim, and Stuttgart
Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling
The Research Training Group (RTG) "Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling" at the
German Universities of Tübingen, Hohenheim, and Stuttgart targets at developing and
applying numerical models of flow and reactive solute transport in coupled hydrosystems
comprising of land-surface and subsurface compartments. These models are needed to assess
the impacts of environmental change on water quantity and quality at catchment scale. The
RTG offers a structured PhD program at the German partner universities with joint international
training and supervision. The main work place is in Tübingen; a six-month research stay at a
Canadian partner university is integral part of the training.
For the third project phase starting at June 1, 2018, we seek for 8 Doctoral Researchers (3 years,
75% TV-L E13 according to German public salary system) for the following topics:
Theme A: Flux Balances at the Land Surface
A.9 Bayesian Multi-Purpose Modelling of Processes in the Soil-Crop-Atmosphere Nexus on the Landscape Scale
Theme B: Biogeochemical Reactions in Catchments
B.6 Numerical Simulation of Flow and Biogeochemical Reactive Transport in the Ammer Floodplain
B.7 Development of Reactive-Transport Models of Nitrogen Cycling Informed by Molecular-Biological Data
B.8 Modelling the Fate of Toxicity Equivalents in Streams
B.9 How do Microbes Eat Rocks? Modelling Biogeochemical Reactions at the Rock/Water Interface in Fractured Limestone Aquifers
B.10 Compound-Specific Isotope Fractionation on the Catchment Scale
Theme C: Uncertainty Assessment of Large-Scale Models
C.7 Overcoming Erroneous Overconfidence in Parameter Estimation for Soil Moisture Models
C.8 Strategies to Model De-Gassing in Porous Media
Theme D: Evolution of Catchments
D.6 Catchment Scale Simulation of Erosion, Sediment Transport, and Deposition
D.7 Alternative Stable States in Coupled Human-Hydro-Ecological Models
More information including an application form can be found at www.geo.uni-tuebingen.de/hydromod
Applicants must hold a Master or equivalent degree in quantitative geosciences, civil and environmental engineering,
physics, applied mathematics, or another field of science and engineering with appropriate specialization. Proficiency
in numerical modelling and programing, as well as training in subsurface hydrology is required. Experience in using
HydroGeoSphere is beneficial, but not mandatory.
Applications are to be submitted until January 31st, 2018 to email@example.com
(one PDF-file only!, max. 5MB). Applications should include a letter of motivation, CV, Master and Bachelor certificates
and transcripts including grades, proof of special qualifications, prints of publications if applicable, the filled out
application form, and a list of at least three referees.
The participating universities want to increase the number of female researchers, particularly in the field of modelling, and specifically
encourage female candidates to apply. Special gender-equality measures will be emplaced within the RTG.
Disabled persons will be preferred in case of equal qualification.
