[GilbertClub] Two PhD positions, on eco-morphodynamics and storm surge forecasting, at University of Florida

I am recruiting two PhD
students at University of Florida (UF), Department of Civil and
Coastal Engineering (ESSIE). Anyone with interests in coastal,
estuarine, riverine hydrodynamics and/or ecomorphodynamics is
encouraged to apply. I am looking for students with a strong
interest in computer modeling (although field work can be a
complementary activity). I am particularly interested in
applicants with a strong background in the physics governing
processes in shallow water environments, and/or with strong
mathematical/numerical skills. One of the two positions will
mainly focus on improving storm surge forecasts, and a good
experience with numerical models (in particular Delft3D), with
data assimilation tools (e.g. OpenDA) and/or with operational
forecasting and warning system (such as FEWS) is highly desirable.
The other position will mainly focus on numerical modeling of
ecomorphodynamics, and a good experience with running a
morphodynamic model such as Delft3D is highly desirable.
Applicants should send their CV to alberto.canestrelli@dicea.unipd.it,
specifying if they are applying for the storm surge forecasting
position, for the ecomorphodynamic position, or both.

Deadlines:

The fundings for the two positions come from different sources,
and they have different deadlines, but the research topics are
free to be chosen. Therefore, the matching of applicants with
research topics and funded positions will be decided based on the
applications I will receive.

One position (either of the two mentioned above) will start in
August 2017, with deadlines April 20th for a non-US applicant and
May 20th for a US applicant. If no suitable applicant will be
found by the deadline, the position will start in January 2018,
with deadline August 20th for a non-US applicant and November 1st
for a US applicant.

The other position will start in August 2017, and the deadline is
very close, i.e. April 7h, 2017. If no suitable applicant will be
found by the latter date, the position will start in August 2018,
with a deadline of November 20th 2017.

Alberto Canestrelli,

Assistant Professor (starting August 2017),

Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering (ESSIE),

University of Florida,
