I am currently recruiting PhD students for projects related to Smart Water Distribution System Management. Funding is available for two specific topics:
All students are encouraged to apply for independent funding. Applicants interested in areas other than those being recruited for may contact me to discuss writing a proposal together.
I am always looking for highly motivated students that are passionate about research. Diversity and inclusion is key to team success. All qualified individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons, members of sexual minorities, persons with disabilities, and others who may contribute to diversification are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should fill in the application form: https://forms.gle/ZCtxW13tWkn59ukg8
