We are happy to announce 13 open PhD positions in the
H2020 EU ITN-ETN project MEMO2: MEthane goes MObile:
MEasurements and MOdelling
MEMO2 is a European Training Network Project
with more than 20 collaborators from 7 countries. Within the project we will
identify and evaluate methane emissions and support mitigation measures by I)
developing new and advanced mobile methane measurements tools and networks, II)
isotopic source identification, and III) modelling at different scales.
MEMO2 will bridge the gap between large-scale scientific estimates
from in situ monitoring programs and the ‘bottom-up’ estimates of emissions from
local sources that are used in the national reporting.
The project aims to educate a new generation of
“cross–thinking” scientists, which are able to effectively implement novel
measurement and modelling tools in an interdisciplinary and intersectoral
For more information about the projects and the
application procedure, please visit the project website: https://memo2.sites.uu.nl
