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. The project is entitled “Environmental pathways of antimicrobial resistance: Modelling wastewater loadings of antibiotics to river networks”. The objective of the project is to extend an existing global water quality model to include a module for computing wastewater loadings of antibiotics (and other pharmaceuticals) to rivers. More about the project is given below under “Project Description”.

For this position, the University of Sussex is looking for a PhD or Masters with solid experience in quantitative analysis (modelling, statistics, informatics, applied mathematics, other). An educational background and/or experience in environmental themes would be welcome, but is not required.

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.
