Dear All,

We are looking for a PhD student for a fully funded 3 year EPSRC DTP studentship which will be jointly supervised by Brighton and Durham Universities. Based at Brighton, this studentship
will use an integrated approach combining field, laboratory and numerical modelling to generate a new quantitative, process-based understanding of river adjustment in relation to flood sequencing and its concomitant impact on flood risk.  The student will
also have the opportunity to work with the industry project collaborators, Northwest Hydraulic Consultants, Seattle.
