Functie

地球科学系正在寻找一名博士候选人,目的是开发一个集成微生物的建模工具, chemical, 水文和物理数据和过程旨在为生物修复应用提供决策支持工具. The position is part of the EU-Horizon Project MiBiRem.

生物修复是微生物对地下有机污染物进行降解的过程. 考虑到欧洲存在数十万个受污染地点,并对人类和环境构成潜在风险,这是修复和管理地下和十大正规体育平台的饮用水储备的关键技术. 由于传统的修复技术往往过于密集和低效/昂贵, 受刺激的微生物群在生物基础工业和十大正规体育平台的生活环境中有很高的去除污染物的潜力.

欧盟地平线项目MiBiRem旨在改进微生物群应用的开发. 它包括发展更好地了解和监测的分子方法;分离和培养技术;沉积的质量标准;以及改善微生物群特定功能的方法. During the project, 将在几个实地地点调查活性微生物群降解土壤和地下水中的有机污染物的情况. 采样将获得数据,用于开发预测工具,帮助指导生物修复. For predicting the impact of stimulated remediation efforts, analytical methods are needed to understand the different processes, such as reactivity and transport phenomena.

该博士项目的主要目标是设计和实现多学科预测工具作为一个Python包. 它将整合已有的水文地质条件模拟软件(Modflow), geochemical (PHREEQC), and microbiome/metagenome identification (Genomic & 16S测序)、功能预测宏基因组学和物种与条件(Canoco 5 ..12). 该过程的一部分将是制定一个数据管理计划,以便在项目组之间处理和交换数据.  该预测工具将应用于至少一个受污染的项目现场. 这项任务包括管理可用的现场数据(与项目伙伴合作),建立水文地质和地球化学条件的模型, as well as microbiome information on contaminants and degraders.

Profiel

We are looking for candidates with: 

  • 地球科学、生物学、土木工程或相关领域的硕士学位; 
  • knowledge on biogeochemistry and/or bioremediation;
  • affinity to programming and numerical modelling;
  • 愿意在学术和应用驱动的研究界面工作;
  • the ability to work in a team;
  • excellent English oral and writing skills;
  • 有数据存储知识和数据管理经验者优先.

Aanbod

You will be offered a temporary position (1.0 FTE), 最初为期一年,在第一年通过评核后,会延长至总共四年, 并且有一个明确的目标就是在这段时间内获得博士学位. The gross salary ranges between €2,541 in the first year and €3,全职工作的第四年(根据荷兰大学集体劳动协议P量表),每月支付247英镑. 除了工资之外,还有8%的假期奖金和8%的年终奖金.3% per year.

In addition, Utrecht University offers excellent secondary conditions, including an attractive retirement scheme, (带薪)产假和灵活的雇佣条件(多项选择模式). For more information, please visit working at Utrecht University.

A personalised training programme will be set up, reflecting your training needs and career objectives. About 20% of your time will be dedicated to this training component, 包括协助十大正规体育平台地球科学系理学士和理学硕士教学项目的在职培训. As a PhD candidate you will be part of an international training network, 但你也可以从十大正规体育平台提供的志愿研讨会和支持项目中受益.
