BAM! is a European-born idea, that provides a potential solution to a global scale problem. It fits within the European Green Deal strategy, that aims to transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050. In addition to technology development, the project will be an opportunity for young researchers to acquire cutting-edge knowledge, enabling them to become research leaders within this European climate policy framework.
Currently, we are looking for:
PhD student at Wageningen University, who will look into detail on the effect of earthworms on the weathering, how they interact with the other biota, and how the weathering environments affects worm health. This is a 4 year position, starting September 1st 2021.
