Marie Curie European Industrial Doctorate PhD Fellowship
Start date: 04 October 2021
Duration: 3 Years
Trapping and Removal of X-ray Contrast Medium agents from water resource and stream Sediments New Concepts in Trapping, Recycling and Management.
Applications are welcome for the opening of 4 Early Stage Researcher (ESRs) positions associated with PhD-level research activities as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate (EID) programme related to the Consortium “REMEDI” (Trapping and Removal of X-ray Contrast Medium agents from water resource and stream Sediments New Concepts in Trapping, Recycling and Management). The latter leverages a partnership between Politecnico di Milano (Italy), the University of Warwick (United Kingdom) and TAUW GMBH (Germany).
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie project REMEDI
REMEDI is keyed towards a multidisciplinary, cross-sectoral approach to investigate and characterize dynamics and feedbacks across the water-soil system and relevant categories of pharmaceutical compounds. Salient aspects related to the assessment of the distribution of these compounds in groundwater will be analyzed from a water resource management perspective and considering the effects of multiple sources of uncertainty (including structural and parametric uncertainties, i.e., uncertainty about a given conceptual and mathematical model and the embedded parameters and driving forces) on predictive uncertainty.
