23/03/2017 - 2 PhD scholarships: Sediment transport in aquatic canopies, UWA Oceans Institute, University of Western Australia, Australia
2 PhD scholarships are available in the UWA Oceans Institute (http://www.oceans.uwa.edu.au/) and School of Earth Sciences at the University of Western Australia.

Deadline for application: Friday, April 21, 2017

27/02/2017 - Post-doctoral position, Uncertainty Quantification in 2D morphodynamic models, Universite Paris Est, France
We are seeking to fill a 18 month post-doctoral position on Uncertainty Quantification in 2D morphodynamic models. The aim of this post-doctoral position is to develop an operational tool for simulating navigation hydraulic conditions in the Gironde estuary. The numerical tool, based on TELEMAC set of softwares (open-source code, www.opentelemac.org), must be able to deliver the real time flow depth with uncertainty and confidence intervals. Of particular interest is the uncertainty related to sediment transport parameters that are generally poorly defined in literature.

Deadline for application: March 31st, 2017

27/02/2017 - Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Water/Hydraulic Engineering, University of Strathclyde, UK
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), University of Strathclyde is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Water/Hydraulic Engineering to provide excellence in research, teaching and knowledge exchange and to build upon our water expertise in the Centre for Water, Environment, Sustainability and Public Health. The Centre currently comprises two Professors, seven Senior Lecturers, four Lecturers, one Knowledge Exchange Fellow and one Research Fellow. 

Deadline for application: 1st April 2017

24/02/2017 - Post-doc: Flood Forecasting Using Data from Citizen Observatories, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands
This post-doc position is part of the EU-funded project "FloodCitiSense" which aims to develop an early warning service for urban pluvial floods for and by citizens and city authorities, through establishment of citizen observatories.

The main tasks of the candidate will be to establish and implement a low-cost, smart sensor monitoring network for pluvial floods through citizen observatories in the city of Rotterdam, using state-of-the-art, low-cost, low-energy sensors and communication protocols (LoRa technology, Internet of Things [IoT] solutions). He/she will use high resolution data and innovative data assimilation techniques for non-conventional sensors (smart sensors, citizen observations and feedback) to improve simulation and understanding of urban hydrological response. The final aim is to develop a fast and accurate data-driven urban pluvial flood forecasting system based upon rainfall and runoff critical thresholds, derived from the improved urban hydrological modelling.

Deadline for application: 1 March 2017

21/02/2017 - PhD Student Position in Machine Learning for Fluid Simulation, University of Innsbruck, Austria
Within the scope of the Doctoral Programme (“Doktoratskolleg”) Computational Interdisciplinary Modelling (DK-CIM) of the University of Innsbruck, the Interactive Graphics and Simulation Group and the Unit of Environmental Engineering invite applications for the position of a PhD student, focusing on the acceleration of solvers for Navier-Stokes equations via machine learning techniques.

Deadline for application: Open untill filled

21/02/2017 - HT Foundation Scholarship, University of Exeter, UK

The HT Foundation Scholarship is funded by alumnus Norman Ho (Economics 1976), through the Ho Tim Foundation. It aims to support the most deserving candidate from China to undertake Masters level study at the University of Exeter in MSc Water Engineering or MSc Water Engineering with Management. Norman’s support to Exeter builds on a strong tradition of educational philanthropy in his family running back through several generations. His Foundation has previously supported universities in the UK: including Oxford and Cambridge, as well as universities in the US, Hong Kong and mainland China and has provided scholarships for many students from China through this process. Norman said:

“Supporting education and ensuring academically talented students have access to graduate study at great universities is incredibly important. It is a privilege to be able to contribute to this process and particularly by supporting my own alma mater, the University of Exeter”.

Deadline for application: 31st March, 2017

13/02/2017 - Quantitative River Ecologist, CSIRO, Australia
The role of Research Scientist Staff in CSIRO is to conduct innovative research leading to scientific achievements that are aligned with CSIRO's strategies. You may be engaged in scientific activity ranging from fundamental research to the investigation of specific industry or community problems. You will have the opportunity to build and maintain networks, play a lead role in securing project funds, provide scientific leadership and pursue new ideas and approaches that create new concepts. You may be involved in leading research projects or undertaking work that has impact on the development of scientific or technical knowledge.

The role will utilise skills in integrating ecohydrology and/or ecological modelling within a broader interdisciplinary understanding of aquatic systems, in order to inform environmental water management and policy. The scientist will play a key role in leading basin-scale integrative environmental research and building relationships with government and non-government customers.

Deadline for application: 12th March 2017
