University of Florida Levin College of Law
I am recruiting one PhD student at University of Florida (UF), Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering (ESSIE), with funding (see below) coming from by the prestigious “Graduate School Preeminence Awards” (GSPA). Anyone with interests in coastal, estuarine, riverine hydrodynamics and/or ecomorphodynamics is encouraged to apply. I am looking for highly skilled students with a strong interest in computer modeling (although field work could be a complementary activity). I am particularly interested in applicants with a strong background in the physics governing processes in shallow water environments, and/or with strong mathematical/numerical skills. If the candidate would like to work on storm surge forecast, a good experience with numerical models (e.g. Delft3D), with data assimilation tools (e.g. OpenDA) and/or with operational forecast and early warning system (such as FEWS) is highly desirable. If the applicant would like to pursuit a PhD in ecomorphodynamics, a good experience with running a morphodynamic model (e.g. Delft3D) is highly desirable. For the latter positions the focus will mainly be on the long term evolution of coastal morphological systems, such as estuaries, salt marshes and barrier islands. Applicants should send their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org specifying on which subject they would like to carry research on. Deadline: The position can either start in January 2018 (deadline November 15th, 2017) or in August 2018 (deadline June, 1st, 2018). There is also the possibility to delay the starting date of the position to August 2019. This particular scholarship can only be given to USA citizens.

"The University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law was founded in 1909. It is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. It is dedicated to advancing human dignity, social welfare, and justice through knowledge of the law. The Levin College of Law combines traditional and innovative teaching methods to provide a dynamic professional program. Its curriculum is designed to develop students’ analytical ability, practical knowledge, communication skills, and understanding of the codes of responsibility and ethics that are central to the practice of law. Students also may enroll in certificate programs offered in several popular practice areas. The faculty at the school employs a variety of teaching methods, including the traditional case and Socratic methods, as well as problems, simulations, and role-playing. Courses designed to develop and refine students’ writing abilities are required each year. Seminars and advanced courses provide close interaction and individualized research. Clinical programs (simulated and live) allow students to develop skills in the context of real cases. Levin College of Law’s Legal Information Center is one of the three largest law libraries in the Southeastern United States. The center was a pioneer in the development of computerized legal research and library automation."
