Post-doctoral and graduate student positions in Ecohydraulics, The University of Central Florida, US

The University of Central Florida anticipates hiring at least two positions in the area of Ecohydraulics:

(1)   A Post-Doctoral Research Scholar position is available for a 24-month period with the possibility of extension, pending funding availability. The successful candidate will be based in the Water Resources Engineering group in UCF’s Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering in Orlando, Florida and will collaborate with diverse project members on an interdisciplinary research project. The candidate will support a NSF-funded research project focused on feedbacks between hydraulic processes, vegetation (mangroves, SAV and emergent marsh grasses), oyster reefs and sediment within aquatic restoration sites. 

The fellowship provides two years of salary contingent upon successful progress in year one. Release time and an independent travel allowance is granted for the successful candidate to develop her/his own projects and joint research proposals. The position is available immediately and candidates available to start earlier will be preferred.  

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

·Ph.D. in Water Resources, Civil, Environmental, Biological or Ecological Engineering, or in a related area (Hydrology, Geomorphology or other relevant Earth Sciences) from an accredited institution.

·Quantitative background, including experience with coding and analysis in MATLAB, R, Python, and/or Fortran.

·Strong background (both coursework and professional or research experience) in hydrology/hydraulics.

·Interest or relevant experience in Ecohydrology or Ecohydraulics.

·Excellent oral and written communication skills and a strong academic record of scholarly work in international journals and scientific meetings. 

·Field experience in aquatic environments (boating experience a plus).

·Experience with acoustic velocimetry (ADCP, ADV). 

·Willingness to be a team player. Please see details here: http://ecohydraulics.weebly.com/join-us.html

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Please send a cover letter, CV, writing sample (preferably published work on which you are the first author) and the names and contact information for three references able to provide letters of recommendation upon request to Dr. Kelly Kibler at kelly.kibler@ucf.edu. Applications will be received until the position is filled, with earlier applicants given the strongest consideration. 

(2)   Funded Ph.D. or M.Sc. Graduate Research Assistant positions are available starting Fall 2017 or Spring 2018. The successful candidate will study towards a M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in the Water Resources Engineering group at UCF’s Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering. 

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

·For M.Sc. applicants: B.Sc. degree in Water Resources, Civil, Environmental, Biological or Ecological Engineering, or in a related area (Hydrology, Geomorphology or other relevant Earth Sciences) from an accredited institution before August 2017.

·For Ph.D. applicants: M.Sc. degree in Water Resources, Civil, Environmental, Biological or Ecological Engineering, or in a related area (Hydrology, Geomorphology or other relevant Earth Sciences) from an accredited institution before August 2017.
