23.05.2017 - Research Units of BRGM & UMR LISAH, Montpellier (France)

We are looking for a PhD candidate at the interface between karstic hydrology, modelling and environmental sciences as part of a BRGM / INRA collaboration in Montpellier, France:” Hydrologic modelling of flood events and identification of spatial indicators of runoff genesis: Application on karstic basins (Mediterranean zone, Jura, Normandy)”. Three years of funding are available, beginning in October 2017.

Project description
The aim of the PhD is to better understand the role of karst in flood generation at the catchment scale, in order to spatialize runoff indices and to improve hydrological models on catchments having significant karstic areas.
