24/11/2017 - Fluids Research Laboratory Manager, University of Liverpool,
You will be an enthusiastic and motivated individual who will work on a post funded by the ESPRC. The post supports the award of a Fellowship to Professor Rob Poole and you will manage the day-to-day running of the laboratory including training others (including both undergraduate and postgraduate students) in various experimental techniques and constructing small-scale experiments. You should have a degree in a relevant area (e.g. Engineering or Physics) with relevant experience of mixing and characterising complex fluids. A PhD in Engineering or Physics would be an advantage. Experience of rheological measurement techniques and familiarity with designing and commissioning fluid mechanics experiments and a good knowledge of the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, rheology and heat transfer is essential to the role. Knowledge of laser techniques for fluid flow measurements e.g. laser Doppler velocimetry or particle image velocimetry would be an advantage.

Deadline for application: 31 March 2020

06/11/2017 - Post-doctoral researcher position in urban water engineering – Stormwater bioretention, Lulea, Sweden
BACKGROUND 

The Urban Water research group at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural resources engineering at Luleå University of Technology seeks a driven and committed post-doctoral researcher with focus on the function of bioretention/biofilters for stormwater management.

RESEARCH GROUP

Urban Water Engineering research at LTU covers the entire urban water system (stormwater management, water and wastewater supply) including collection, transport and treatment, as well as organisation and planning. The research aims to encourage a clean environment and the wise use of resources, while preserving the public’s health and safety. The group’s overall aim is to contribute to the development of sustainable urban water systems.

The Urban Water research group has a strong position in research and education within the area of urban water systems mainly regarding stormwater, wastewater and sewer systems. Being a part of the Urban Water research group means working in an international and creative environment. The group consists of a number of senior researchers, adjunct professors and about 14 doctoral candidates. The group has an extensive international collaboration network.

More information is available on www.ltu.se/water

Deadline for application: Open until filled

26/10/2017 - PhD and MS opportunities in Coastal Processes, Florida State University, USA
Our research aims to understand the processes that shape coastal landforms, and how we can use them to infer future change or past climates. MS and PhD projects may focus on (1) tidal and wave-driven dynamics of rivers deltas, and how they might be affected by sea-level rise or human impacts, (2) barrier islands and tidal inlets, in terms of storm impact or longer-term change, likely focused on the future of Florida's coastlines, (3) smaller scale sediment transport and bedforms, (4) river flooding in low-lying areas and their imprint on floodplain deposits.

Deadline for application: Open until filled

26/10/2017 - Doctoral position on “River mesohabitat modeling”, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
In many environmental studies of rivers, the understanding and prediction of bio-physical interactions processes is becoming a key element to be increasingly considered when planning and implementing river restoration projects. Traditional habitat models for rivers work at the microhabitat scale, referring to a single point (or computational cell), which is evaluated in terms of habitat suitability due to its local hydraulic and substrate conditions. Environmental conditions around organisms, not only at the location where they are observed, are known to be key factors affecting habitat use. In this light the mesohabitat scale has been increasingly used to model the ecological responses of biotic communities to hydromorphological alterations. Despite recent advancements, mesohabitat modeling is still in its infancy and the overarching goal of this doctoral research is to further explore and implement its potential. The 4-years project will be mainly focused on the development and implementation of the mesohabitat model. It will also integrate numerical modeling with the in-house developed software BASEMENT (http://www.basement.ethz.ch/), field data collection, analysis of habitat time series and the application of suitable distribution models for target biological species. The four specific research objectives are to: (1) identify mesohabitats and their dynamics from the output of a two-dimensional, shallow-water-Exner numerical model using an “unsupervised” (algorithm-driven) methodology (using for example clustering analysis); (2) include biotic interactions in species distribution models, specifically analyzing both aquatic/aquatic and aquatic/riparian biotic interactions; (3) evaluate habitat availability at the meso-scale for both aquatic and riparian species; (4) define environmental standards for larger stretches at ecologically relevant spatial scale. Case studies in river with different morphologies and rates of morphological changes will be preferably chosen among sites already subject to field investigation in Switzerland. A four-months secondment to Polytechnic University of Turin will focus on the development of new biological models for species of interest in the Alpine region.

Deadline for application: November 26, 2017
