PhD-position 1 within the SEALINK project: Physical hydrogeological processes linking land-based pollution and coral reef health in the Dutch Caribbean (WUR)

One 4-year PhD position at WUR  focusses on physical hydro(geo)logy, and is closely linked to a PhD projected hosted by and supervised from TU Delft focusing on (sub)surface water quality and transport. Both seek to improve the mechanistic understanding of how...

PhD-position 2 within the SEALINK project: Environmental Hydro(geo)logy in the Dutch Caribbean (TU Delft)

This PhD position at TU Delft will focus on mapping of groundwater and run-off water quality, tracing of water flows and pollutants along pathways from land into sea (including submarine groundwater discharge), and mathematical modelling linking pollution sources like leaking sewage infrastructure, to (ground)water quality, and pollutant fluxes from land to...

PhD-position 5 within the SEALINK project: quantifying community dynamics through time (UvA)

In this project you will conduct yearly surveys based on high-resolution 3D mosaic images of reefs at selected sites around Curaçao and St Eustatius to produce estimations of community structure, biomass, and volume through time at e.g., sites with/without pressure from coastal development and that experience differences in run-off and hydrodynamic conditions. Biomass estimates need to be collected to estimate substance fluxes in collaboration with other project partners. You will also...

PhD-position 6 within the SEALINK project: understanding reef trophodynamics across space (UvA)

In this project you will produce estimates of the net influxes and effluxes (day and night) of organic and inorganic CNP through major pelagic and benthic functional groups (e.g., calcifying and non-calcifying phototrophs, motile and non-motile suspension/deposit-feeders) using incubation experiments. These will then serve to construct net CNP budgets for Caribbean reef communities growing under various environmental conditions. Based on...

PhD-position 8 within the SEALINK project: Sustainable land management on the Dutch Caribbean (VU)

The PhD student will use an innovative scenario approach combining field work in the Dutch Caribbean with advanced simulation models to (1) assess how uncertain developments like tourism and urbanization will impact the land-water system and, (2) co-design solutions (using optimization models and a participatory process with stakeholders) to navigate tradeoffs between environmental and development objectives within a context of feasibility and willingness. Methods will include the development of land use scenarios and activity models in collaboration with local stakeholders in the Dutch Caribbean to...

PhD-position 9 within the SEALINK project: Uptake Strategies for Dutch Caribbean coral reef research (UU)

Research-for-development or research uptake strategies are the object of your study – i.e. your work will contribute to fundamental theory development and practical implications, generically defined. At the same time, by studying research uptake strategies in the particular context of SEALINK, your work will contribute to the positive ...
