Application deadline: 16th of February 2014, position starts in October 2014.
To fundamentally improve our knowledge on shelf seabed dynamics in mixed sediments, a fully funded PhD studentship is available, based at Bangor University (Dr Katrien Van Landeghem and Dr Jaco Baas) and the National Oceanography Centre - Liverpool (Dr. Laurent Amoudry). This studentship is part of the NERC Doctoral Training Programme "ENVISION" (www.Envision-dtp.org), aiming to developing our next generation leaders in environmental science.
This PhD project focuses on the complexity of shelf seabed morphological dynamics in a mixture of sand and gravel. You will be part of a truly multi-disciplinary, integrated approach of offshore data analyses, laboratory work, bedload modelling and novel ways to communicate your science through 3D graphics. You relocate to Liverpool to work with experts at the National Oceanography Centre for minimum 6 months.
You should hold good numerical skills and a minimum of a UK Honours Degree at 2:1 level or equivalent in subjects such as Environmental Science, Environmental Engineering, (Marine) Geology, Physical Oceanography or Natural Sciences.
ENVISION DTP studentships are funded for typically 3.5 years and cover full tuition fees, tax-free stipend (£13,726 + £1000 per annum), Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) of £2500 per annum and extra funds and support from our partners in industry.
