### THE OFFER ###
In cooperation with Goethe University Frankfurt (GU), University Koblenz-Landau (UKL) and Trier University (TU), ISOE invites applications for 4 doctoral research positions in Hydrology, Human Geography, European Ethnology and Ecology (65 %, 4.25 years, start of employment 01/11/2020, salary according to German civil service pay scale (TV-H/TV-L/TVöD/TV-G-U)) in the Junior Research Group "REGULATE" - Regulation of Groundwater in Telecoupled Social-Ecological Systems

### PhD POSITION 1 ECOLOGY at University Koblenz-Landau ###
Quality – Groundwater Stressors & Ecological Impacts: Effects of stressors (e.g. pollutants, temperature, and drought) on groundwater fauna in multiple European case studies.

### PhD POSITION 2 HYDROLOGY at Goethe-University Frankfurt ###
Quantity – Groundwater Availability & Uncertainty: Impacts of climate change and societal water consumption on groundwater quantity in two European case studies.

Conflicts – Power Relations & Inequality in Groundwater Use: Conflicts around groundwater in two or more case studies, with a particular focus on water quality and embedded power relations and inequalities in groundwater governance.

Institutions – Practices & Norms in Groundwater Use: Cultural dimensions of unregulated groundwater extractions in two European case studies, with a focus on water quantity.

The research group sets out to explore current challenges in management of the ‘hidden resource’ groundwater in Europe, against the background of long-distance environmental and societal feedbacks (telecouplings). Dynamics in groundwater quantity and quality that lead to environmental risks such as droughts and pollution, associated societal conflicts and institutional settings are addressed with perspectives from natural and social sciences as well as from stakeholders at the European and at local levels. We are seeking four doctoral researchers to build a team that develops innovative ways of thinking, studying and managing groundwater in Europe.

The four doctoral positions will provide the opportunity for disciplinary research and qualification, while these individual projects will be integrated under the overall research topic of ‘Telecoupled Social-Ecological Systems’. All members of the group will work on joint research questions regarding the social-ecological regulation of groundwater in Europe. The first 6 months serve to concretize the own research question and to create a shared understanding of the overarching research aim, the disciplinary perspectives, the interdisciplinary teamwork and the transdisciplinary collaboration with stakeholders.

The research group will be headed by Dr Fanny Frick-Trzebitzky and Dr Robert Luetkemeier, and based at ISOE in Frankfurt with GU, UKL and TU as partnering institutions. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the Social-Ecological Research Framework of FONA. All vacancies are subject to final grant approval by BMBF.
Methoden: The individual PhD positions focus on diciplinary qualification using innovative methods of their respective fields. In addition, all PhD candidates are part of the junior research group REGULATE and will collaborate in inter- and transdisciplinary processes.
Anfangsdatum: 1. November 2020
Geschätzte Dauer: 4.25 years
Bezahlung: Civil service pay scale (TV-H/TV-L/TVöD/TV-G-U)
