The Environmental Management Program at the Montclair State University seeks one Ph.D. student for a research position beginning as early as Sept 2015. Application deadline: April 30th.
The student will be involved in exploring the co-evolution of human activities and natural processes in the coastal environment. This work will yield a set of new integrated geological and economic modeling tools to predict shoreline evolution under different storm hazard and sea-level rise scenarios over a time scale of several decades. The models and results will be useful for sustainable hazard management and planning in coastal communities faced with increased sea-level rise, erosion, and inundation associated with climate change.
Qualifications: A master’s degree in coastal engineering/geomorphology/sedimentology or a related field. Applicants should have strong analytical, quantitative, and writing skills. Candidates with relevant research experience will be given preference. A strong work ethic and ability to work independently and as part of a team are essential.
Assistantship: Research assistantship would include full tuition and stipend support. Any inquiries about this position are welcome.
