Here the 13 available Early Stage Researcher/PhD positions descriptions.

With the exception of ESR/PhD project #3, which looks for someone with a natural science/modelling background, the call is looking for candidates with a strong social science background. The ideal requirements for each position can be a bit different, for example specific language skills appropriate for the project field work.

The deadline for the application has been extended to May 24th 2020. Candidates are expected to start in September-October 2020 and NEWAVE is prepared to adapt to the Covid-19 situation by leveraging remote connection and remote work.

The selected candidates will become the backbone of a stellar actionable research network that includes some of the leading academic and non-academic organizations in the world of water governance including 10 host organizations and 19 partners.

Interested candidates are invited to submit online a proposal only for their preferred option, additionally they can list two alternative preferences among the available positions.
