The Stockholm Resilience Centre at the University of Sweden is seeking three enthusiastic and committed PhD candidates to join them in a new research project for understanding and safeguarding freshwater resilience in the Anthropocene. Two of the PhD students will focus on better understanding the severe and widespread loss of water resilience in the Anthropocene and their impacts on distant countries through biophysical and socioeconomic flows (e.g., water, carbon, trade), and the third PhD student will focus on governance arrangements to both prevent or navigate those resilience risks as they emerge. The research project (www.waterresilience.earth) is funded by Formas (A Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development), and is a collaboration among researchers from Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University in Sweden, Princeton University in the US, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, Politecnico di Torino in Italy, Northeastern University in the US, and WaterAid in Sweden.
