PhD position (3y): Hotspots and hot moments: the role of connectivity and resilience science for managing human-impacted catchment systems
University of Vienna, , Italy
Apply before: 31 May 2020

Objectives: (1) To identify hotspots and hot moments of hydro-geomorphic connectivity in human-impacted catchment systems by reviewing and testing/combining existing connectivity science and resilience approaches in selected medium-sized agricultural catchments; (2) To develop a conceptual and methodological framework and tools based on the findings of (1); (3) To test the this framework/tools in selected catchment systems and to derive general implications for connectivity and resilience science and its application in catchment management (e.g. field measurements incl. tracer experiments; i.e. via collecting new data in the course of the project and using already existing datasets), modelling, connectivity indices.
