Post-doc on carbon transport and cycling in river systems

Politecnico di Torino

Torino, TO, Italia 🇮🇹

Politecnico di Torino is seeking a highly motivated and skilled Post-Doctoral Researcher to join our research team for a one-year renewable position. The successful candidate will play a key role in the PRIN-funded research project (E-CAPTURE) focused on carbon budgeting in fluvial dynamics. This interdisciplinary project aims to advance our understanding of carbon transport and cycling in river systems.

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Develop a Lagrangian model for log transport in rivers to enhance our understanding of fluvial dynamics.
  2. Conduct field measurements and data collection to validate and refine the model.
  3. Collaborate with multidisciplinary research teams.
  4. Participate in a period of training at the University of Trento to enhance research capabilities.


  • Hold a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., Environmental Engineering, Earth Sciences, Hydrology, Geophysics, or related disciplines).
  • Background in numerical modeling and programming.
  • Experience in river dynamics, sediment transport, or related areas.
  • Proficiency in scientific software and data analysis tools.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills in English (knowledge of Italian is a plus).
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a research team.
  • Willingness to travel for fieldwork and training purposes.

Application Instructions:

Interested candidates should submit the following application materials to [email protected]:
