The project "VirtualWaterValues - Multi-scale Monitoring of Global Water Resources and Options for an Efficient and Sustainable Use"
(viwa.geographie-muenchen.de) aims at generating information to support
progress in achieving water-related goals of the Agenda 2030. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
within the research program "GROW - Global Resources Water". As part of the team, the candidate will work in close collaboration with hydrologists, geographers,
