PhD Student in Soil Hydrology
We are looking for motivated Ph.D. students, interested in interdisciplinary research on the impact of root exudates on the transport of nutrients in the rhizosphere. The student will use a suite of experimental and numerical methods to investigate the physical properties of the rhizosphere, its dynamics, and the resultant effect on nutrient transport. Applicants should have a Master degree in natural sciences or engineering. The prospective students must be admitted to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem graduate program (http://www.research-students.huji.ac.il/en) and will research with the direction of Dr. Nimrod Schwartz (https://openscholar.huji.ac.il/soilhydrology).
The position is expected to start in Oct. 2019 and include a full scholarship, tuition, and medical insurance. If you are interested in the positions, please send a brief description of your research interests and current CV to Dr. Nimrod Schwartz (firstname.lastname@example.org)
