Drought stress and irrigation of urban greening with waste water in South Tyrolean cities

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Plants in the urban-industrial environment have to face a broad range of stress. In the Mediterranean and Sub-Mediterranean climate, the vegetation season is characterized by drought periods. Against the background of drought stress in the urban environments of South Tyrol in particular during spring time and summer, i.e. vegetation season, we want to lay a focus on the possible use of waste water from the Province for the irrigation of urban greening. The co-worker should (1) identify possible sources of waste water, instead of drinking water which might be used for irrigation, (2) should perform chemical analyses in order to identify the quality of the waste water, and (3) should carry out experiments with urban green plants by irrigating those plants with waste water. These investigations will be integrated into a research group on urban ecology at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
