What are we looking for?
As part of the ERC Advanced Grant project GEOWAT, we are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate who is interested in applying economic theories and models to globally assess the economic limits to groundwater use. You have an interest in global water and sustainability challenges and are enthusiastic about working with global large datasets and models. You are a team player and will be part of a multidisciplinary team of two postdocs, three PhD students, and scientific and technical support staff. Together with the team, you will work on assessing the global volumes of fresh groundwater that are physically and economically attainable for human water use and investigate how these volumes can be extracted in a sustainable manner. Your focus will be to quantify the economically attainable volumes of groundwater under climate and socio-economic change.

We are looking for a candidate with:

  • a MSc degree in economics, hydroeconomics, resource economics, environmental economics, agricultural economics, econometrics or a related field;
  • demonstrable enthusiasm for working with large datasets and large-domain economic models in the context of global change;
  • familiarity with environmental aspects related to the exploitation of natural resources, preferably those concerning water, or willing to acquire and deepen this knowledge;
  • well familiar with a scripting or programming language (e.g., Python, R, Fortran, C++);
  • the willingness to work in multi-disciplinary teams;
  • English oral and writing skills; you should be able to demonstrate English language proficiency. We require a qualification English at C1 level (comparable to level 3 of the Lecturer Assessment Grid) or you should be willing to obtain this level by training;
  • the willingness to start 1 September 2022.

PhD candidates at Utrecht University are expected to follow courses as part of their own academic development and to assist in teaching courses at Bachelor's and Master's level at our faculty. Both activities amount to approximately 10% of the contracted time.
