2012 Research Fellowship/Senior Research Position in River Bank Erosion Modelling, UK

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher in the field of river bank erosion modelling to work on an UN FAO funded project on the Indus River in Pakistan The post-holder will join the Earth Surface Dynamics research group within Geography and Environment, in the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences. The ESD research group has several research foci including: understanding the relationships between climate forcing, river channel morphodynamics, and sediment efflux from the Asian mega-rivers; understanding how deep-sea turbidity currents shape submarine meandering channels; development of cellular automaton modelling tools to simulate ecogeomorphological processes in dryland environments; and, investigations of landscape dynamics at the marine-terrestrial interface. The post is available at a ERE level 4 and is offered as a eighteen-month position.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. Geography, Geology, Civil Engineering, Oceanography, Earth Sciences) and an emerging profile of excellent academic publications. It is essential that you have a background in modelling river bank erosion and/or lateral channel migration, ideally on large rivers affected by monsoonal flood pulses.

Deadline: 22 May 2012
