Opportunities for two PhD Scholarships are available in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Group at the University of Newcastle. We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic students interested in the research areas of hydrology, ecohydrology, ecogeomorphology, and sediment transport, with emphasis on quantitative modelling.
Priority will be given to students interested in the following research topics:
• Ecohydrologic and Ecohydraulic modelling tools.
• Ecogeomorphologic modelling of semi-arid and humid environments, whether in hillslopes, rivers, floodplains or wetlands.
• Modelling the impact of climate and anthropic change on hydrology and ecosystems.
The students will participate in collaborative research with internationally recognized research teams.
Applicants must hold a 4-year bachelor’s degree with honours or Master’s degree (or equivalent qualifications) in a field of study relevant to the research areas listed above (Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, or other closely related areas). Additional research experience, familiarity with modelling and awards for academic excellence, can provide strong support to the application. International students from non-English speaking countries are required to demonstrate English proficiency (IELTS or TOEFL).
Interested students: please send a CV and very short statement of research interests to Dr Jose Rodriguez and Dr Patricia Saco (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include GPA, English proficiency, computer skills, and any additional research experience in the CV.
