Searching for PhD abroad with Brazilian Government funding

Hello everyone,

my name is Jose Carlos, I am a 26 years old, brazilian, Mechanical Engineer and I have a great interest in Sanitation Engineering. I intend to specialize in water and wastewater treatment/management and related topics. I am looking for a PhD opportunity around the world and would like to ask if someone has advices to help me finding a position.

I am looking for a supervisor, more preferable if the supervisor works with production of biogas through wastewater treatment, but I am opened to discuss other topics. If you know a professor(s) and/or researcher(s) who works in the field and may be interested, please send me his/her email.

I am taking part of the governamental brazilian program 'Science without Borders' selection process, which pays all fees of the university or institute and gives a scholarship for the graduate student. The program can also fund one-year training if it is required for the university.
"The mobility program proposed here aims to launch the seeds of what could revolutionize the R&D system, the Brazilian students and researchers exposed to an environment of high competitiveness and entrepreneurship.
Characteristics Excellence - the best students and researchers will undertake research in the best and most relevant Universities around the World."
More details about the programm under the following link: www.cienciasemfronteiras.gov.br/web/csf-eng

Next deadline is August 22th when I have to submit the proposal, among other documents, to the Ministry of Education, who is in charge of the program, to be evaluate.

I have disponibility to travel anywhere to research and collect date.

Attached you can find my academic CV. I also attended the IELTS english test with 6.5 overall band score. The most graduate department requires 6.0.
I speak portuguese (mother tongue), english, german and a bit of spanish.

I put myself entirely at your disposal at all times to discuss ideas, suggestions or doubts and for any pontential interview and thank you all in advance for any information it can be given.

With kind regards,
Jose Carlos
