PhD position in coastal ocean modeling
A fully-funded PhD position in coastal ocean modeling will be available starting in January 2013 within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). The student will be involved in the application of the SUNTANS model to coastal and estuarine environments, particularly in the Straits of Singapore and the Johor River estuary. The model will be employed to study the effects of forcing (tides, freshwater, winds) on the estuarine circulation and the transport of pollutants, salt, larvae, nutrients and sediments within the estuarine environment.
Applicants must have a Bachelors and/or Masters degree in oceanography, engineering, computer science, physics, applied mathematics or a closely related field. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified. To apply, please send a cover letter and CV to Dr. Vivien Chua via email email@example.com.
