Job description

Job offer for a doctoral researcher on irrigation hydrology
Institute for Sustainable Agriculture of the Spanish National Council for Scientific Research (IAS-CSIC), Córdoba, Spain (https://www.ias.csic.es/)
Principal Researcher: Luciano Mateos (luciano.mateos@ias.csic.es)

The work is part of two projects of the PRIMA program (http://prima-med.org/):
− MEDWATERICE (https://www.medwaterice.org/): Towards a sustainable water use in Mediterranean rice-based agro-ecosystems
− HubIS: Open innovation Hub for Irrigation Systems in Mediterranean agriculture
Both projects include in their objectives developing hydrological models of water balance, water accounting and water circulation to evaluate the effects of improving on-field irrigation efficiency at the irrigation scheme or agricultural watershed scales. These effects also refer to the quality of the water. The work involves modelling and field monitoring activities.
The job is offered for approximately two years, but there is the possibility of extending it for an additional year. This possibility of extension allows carrying out a doctoral thesis.
The work would be carried out at the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (CSIC), Córdoba, Spain, in close collaboration with professors from the University of Milan and SupAgro (Montpellier). The candidate’s requirements are:
− Good knowledge of English. Knowledge of Spanish and French is desirable.
− University degree with training in agricultural hydrology
− Experience in modeling hydrological processes
− Demonstrated ability in computer programming
IAS-CSIC offers:
− A contract for a graduate student with a gross annual salary of about 30,000 €
− Interaction within the IAS-CSIC recipient group and with the partners of the MEDWATERICE and HubIS projects, including stays with the partners of both projects according to the needs for the proper development of the activities.
− Possibility of doing a doctorate at the University of Córdoba and/or SupAgro, with the supervision of professors from both institutions.
Candidates should send a CV and a motivation letter to Luciano Mateos (luciano.mateos@ias.csic.es)
