Project description:

The Coastal Marine Group at the University of Waikato in Hamilton New Zealand is seeking a student for a 3-year, fully-funded, PhD project starting before June 2014. The objective of the project is to study the turbulent water flows that shape mangrove swamps. We will examine possible correlations between patterns in water flows, sediments, vegetation, water temperature, and bathymetry. The project will have 2 components:
(1) field experiments in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam, to measure flows and turbulence at high resolution and (2) refinement of an existing numerical model for the interacting dynamics of vegetation, water flows, and

This project requires a student with a research BSc (Hons) or research Masters degree in physics, mathematics, oceanography, engineering or a closely related field. The preferred candidate will have documented oceanographic field experience and knowledge of coastal processes. Applicants should also have demonstrated English language proficiency (if English is not your first language, TOEFL or IELTS scores must be submitted with your application).

The project will form part of an Office of Naval Research Departmental
Research Initiative and will involve significant interaction with collaborator Associate Professor Stephen Henderson (Washington State University, USA) and other observational and modelling investigators. The project will be supervised by Dr Julia Mullarney and Associate Professor Karin Bryan. 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, CV, official transcripts, three references, GRE scores if available, TOEFL/IELTS scores if required, and any previous publications to Julia Mullarney.

The group is committed to training students that achieve high-level research outcomes through international publication of their findings. The student would join a vibrant group of 15 PhD students and 6 staff, working and living near some of world’s most beautiful landscapes.
