Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD position (m/f)
There is a need for methods to assess ecological impacts of flow management at a range of scales so that appropriate regional management can be implemented, which could be realized by analyzing environmental flow as a key indicator. Hence, this PhD thesis will use multi-criteria optimization to identify and assess the relationships and trade-offs among land and water use, e-flow requirements, and related ecosystem services on local to regional scales. As a main result the project will provide a scale specific framework to evaluate scale-specific e-flow and related ecosystem services to provide related sustainable management strategies.
