27/05/2017 - Fully-funded PhD Studentship, University of Aberdeen, UK
Coastal vegetation such as seagrass protects against coastal erosion by attenuating wave energy and demobilising suspended sediments. It is also ecologically important, providing shelter, nutrients and nursery areas for a wide variety of marine species. Although substantial research has been done to understand hydrodynamic processes over vegetated beds in steady unidirectional flows, little work has been done on unsteady, wave-generated (oscillatory) flows, despite the prevalence of vegetation in many coastal environments. 

Deadline for application: June 30, 2017

18/05/2017 - PDRA post for an EPSRC project on water-food-energy NEXUS at Department of Geography, Loughborough University, UK
A PDRA is required for an EPSRC project on water-food-energy NEXUS. This is an exciting opportunity for a physical geographer with a background in flood-related research to contribute to the project. The post holder will work alongside Dr Dapeng Yu to design and execute field campaigns and numerical simulations of hydrological, hydraulic and geomorphic processes. She/he will also collaborate closely with partner universities and project partners, within and across work packages of the consortium project.
The successful applicant will be a researcher with: (i) experience in designing and undertaking fieldwork in relation to modelling flood risks; and (ii) experience with numerical modelling of hydrological, hydraulic and geomorphic processes associated with flood risks.

Deadline for application: 31 May 2019

17/05/2017 - MSc and PhD positions in hydrologic analysis, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada
Applications are invited for two graduate student positions at the masters and PhD levels in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. The successful applicant will develop frameworks for the probabilistic assessment of nonstationary hydroclimatic extremes, including floods and droughts, at the regional and global scales. The project requires processing and analysis of large datasets including ground-based and satellite observations as well as global and regional climate model simulations, setting up hydrologic models with different complexities, and developing/improving state-of-the-art statistical techniques.

Deadline for application: September of 2017

05/05/2017 - Post-doctoral position 18 months: Spatially explicit individual-based modelling of three predator fish species population dynamics in a reservoir, France
Fish habitat use is a key driver of population dynamics (Hayes et al., 2009), essential knowledge for predicting how populations are likely to respond to management rules (Koster et al., 2015). The littoral zones of lakes host a high biodiversity (Schmieder, 2004) and provide resources available nowhere else in the lacustrine ecosystem (Zohary and Gasith, 2014). Most fishes use them during their entire life cycle for feeding, refuge or reproduction (Winfield, 2004). Reservoirs experience anthropogenic water level fluctuations (WLF) that affect the littoral habitats and their availability. The fish fauna can be impacted in several ways by WLF: loss of refuge areas (Kaczka and Miranda, 2014), loss of spawning habitats (Hudon et al., 2005) and loss of potential prey (Winfield, 2004). Though statements on their impact are frequent, quantification of WLF effects on biological communities remains little documented (Wantzen et al., 2008).

05/05/2017 - 9 Postdoctoral Positions Core Modelling & Forecasting Team, Canada

Global Water Futures (GWF) is a transformative pan-Canadian research programme, led by the University of Saskatchewan (U of S), which aims to place Canada as a global leader in water science for the world’s cold regions and to address the strategic needs of the Canadian economy in adapting to change and managing the risks of uncertain water futures, including extreme events. GWF is transdisciplinary, working with a wide range of users and integrating the natural, social, health and engineering sciences to provide disaster warning, improved prediction of climate and water futures, and the decision support tools needed to inform adaptation to change and risk management.

27/04/2017 - PhD/Research Assistantship, University of Aberdeen (Scotland), UK
This post represents an exciting opportunity for someone to work on a unique river restoration project that involves the reconnection of a formerly diverted tributary to its main-stem river. You will be based at the Northern Rivers Institute, University of Aberdeen (Scotland), and become part of a multi-agency restoration project that includes a number of universities, research institutes and conservation agencies. 
You will be employed as a Research Assistant and register for a PhD. You will have responsibility for understanding the factors governing the flow regime of the newly restored tributary, its geomorphic evolution and how it is influencing fluvial processes in the main-stem river into which it discharges.

Deadline for application: 20 May 2017

21/04/2017 - PhD studentship: Excess (EXtreme responses in Coastal Engineering using NewWave on Steep Structures), University of Plymouth, UK

Project Description

Coastal and offshore structures are necessarily situated in hostile environments. Their purposes include the defence of coastlines and critical infrastructure and for energy extraction (oil/gas and marine renewables), where a single extreme event could potentially be responsible for catastrophic failure of the structure.

The PhD project will use a physical-modelling approach to investigate wave interactions with steep structures, including near-vertical seawalls and cylindrical structures as proxies for rock lighthouses and marine renewable energy structures. The PhD project will extend results from the recently completed EPSRC-funded ENFORCE project and complement the ongoing STORMLAMP project.

The study will use a focused wave group for the impacting group; specially designed to be representative of the largest wave in a sea-state. The so-called NewWave, which is the autocorrelation function of the underlying sea-state, will link the statistics of large waves in the storm to the extreme loading. The wave group will have its focus point (location of highest energy density) and phase (within the group envelope) systematically varied to identify the precise conditions that are responsible for the most extreme interactions with the structures. The project will involve the first scientific testing of a new type of wave-maker developed by Edinburgh Designs Limited, a world-leading leading supplier of wave-makers.

Experiments will be undertaken in the COAST Laboratory at Plymouth University. The project will be jointly supervised by Dr Ton van den Bremer at Edinburgh University, and the student will collaborate with Edinburgh Designs Limited.

Deadline for application: 31st May 2017

21/04/2017 - Senior Research Associate, University of East Anglia, UK
This NERC-funded collaborative project, with scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in the USA, and elsewhere, focuses on the development of a metrologically traceable chemical thermodynamic model of speciation in natural waters. The research involves the analysis of data from which the parameters of the Pitzer-based speciation model are derived, and the application of statistical methods so that experimental uncertainties can be propagated through the model to the calculated speciation. The work involves collaboration with several groups in other countries carrying out experiments, and culminates in the development of online and other practical modelling tools to be used by natural water chemists.

Deadline for application: 19th May 2017

21/04/2017 - Research Fellow in Fluid Dynamics, University of Warwick, UK
A 3-year Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Mathematics Institute at Warwick to lead challenging research into developing new models for free-surface microflows. This will form part of a substantial EPSRC-funded project Darcy-scale dynamics of microscopically fluctuating interfaces. 

The project is motivated by recent experimental discoveries, by partners in Cambridge, that small-scale liquid-liquid interfaces can be driven into motion by elastic turbulence in the bulk flow. Working in partnership with colleagues at Birmingham, this project will develop micro-models that feed into a macroscopic theory for the phenomenon. At Warwick, the focus will be on gaining insight into the fundamental physical mechanisms using a combination of modelling and computational simulation. 

Deadline for application: 1st June 2017
