Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship to work with Professor Joseph Alcamo on an interdisciplinary project funded by the Sussex Sustainability Research Programme (SSRP), a collaborative initiative by the University of Sussex and Institute of Development Studies to develop an international programme in sustainability research.

Entitled “global modelling of health risks associated with conventional and unconventional river pollution” the project will develop and apply a first version of a global model that estimates the number of people exposed to different types of health risks from river pollution. The model will be used to assess public health risks of growing river pollution in developing countries.

For this position, the University of Sussex is looking for a PhD with solid research experience in quantitative analysis (modelling, statistics, informatics, applied mathematics, other) and with training preferably in a health-related science.

However, applicants with experience in environmentally-related and other relevant sciences are also welcome to apply.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic early career scientist. You will be based in the School of Global Studies and will interact with a community of dynamic young scientists working under the umbrella of the SSRP.

This is a re-advertisement, previous applicants need not apply.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Alcamo ( )
