2. 2 PhD scholarships: Sediment transport in aquatic canopies

Research project

A common feature of many coastal systems is the presence of large and complex bottom roughness (or canopies) on the seafloor formed by a wide range of different marine communities, including seagrasses, corals and mangroves.

Sediment transport is critically-important to the health of these ecosystems, as it can control the stability of the seabed, light availability, the efficiency of suspension feeding and the deleterious effects of turbidity plumes. However, the mechanics of sediment transport in canopies remains poorly understood.

We are seeking 2 PhD students to work on this new project supported by the Australian Research Council. One student will employ innovative experimental techniques to develop an understanding of the near-bed flow and sediment transport in these systems. The other student will design and execute field studies of this process in real canopies in the coastal waters of Western Australia.

Payment

This position includes an annual tax-free stipend of $30,000 (approx.). Qualified applicants who obtain an RTP scholarship (available for both domestic and international students) will be eligible for a stipend of up to $35,000 p.a.

Requirements/Eligibility

Applications are invited from both Australian and international students. Applicants should possess an Honours or Masters degree (or equivalent) in environmental or coastal engineering or related fields (including environmental science, civil/mechanical/chemical/ocean engineering and physics).

This position requires advanced remote sensing, GIS, and statistics experience, including the ability to manipulate large data sets in a LINUX computing environment.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will:

? Process and analyze multi-temporal remote sensing and geospatial data, taking advantage of supercomputing facilities operated by NASA.

? Develop trajectories of post-fire albedo and carbon dynamics after wildfires in Alaska and Canada using advanced statistical approaches.

? Derive statistical relationships between field measurements and geospatial data.

? Collaborate on the development of climate forcing layers to inform management.

Qualifications and Experience:

? B. S. (minimum) or M.S. (preferred) degree in environmental science, geography, ecology, Earth system science, forestry, or a related discipline.

? Demonstrated experience using remote sensing (Landsat or MODIS preferred) or other Earth observation data, and advanced statistical techniques.

? Knowledge of forest and disturbance dynamics.

? Advanced computational and programming skills.

? Excellent written and oral communication skills.

4. Graduate Research Assistantship in Forest Ecology

The Division of Forestry and Natural Resources, in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, West Virginia University, invites applications for a graduate research assistant (GRA) to conduct research on the role of the herb layer in nitrogen cycling in an Appalachian hardwood forest. The study is situated in and takes advantage of the data-rich environment of the Fernow Experimental Forest operated by the U.S.

Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree completed in natural resources, ecology, biology, environmental sciences, or a closely related field. Experience in forest plant identification, data processing, analysis, and GIS are a plus. Strong verbal, written, and computational skills are mandatory. Successful applicants will work collaboratively and independently, and conduct field work under variable weather conditions in steep, mountainous terrain. Applicants must possess a valid US driver's license.

5. 2017 NASA Planetary Science Summer Seminar Applications Open

NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 29th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held July 24-28, 2017 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback. By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the trade-offs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.

6. PhD in hydrometeorological modeling

Where You Will Study

Université Laval (UL) is the oldest French-language university in North America. UL is a comprehensive university boasting some 48,000 students—a quarter of them graduates—as well as 17 faculties, 60 departments and schools, and nearly 400 undergraduate and graduate programs in every field of knowledge.

What You Will Do

Work is underway to construct an experimental hydrological surface model around three components that emanates either from the Soil, Vegetation, and Snow (SVS) land surface model under development at Environment and Climate change Canada or from the Maximization of the Entropy Production (MEP) method. The First component of this hydrological surface model consists in the MEP energy balance model, which was shown to realistically simulate land surface fluxes over a wide range of climates and vegetation covers.

What You Need

Academic background:

? MSc degree in hydrometeorology or closely related discipline

? Experience in physically-oriented hydrometeorologic modeling

? Demonstrated record of research and publication

? Ability to conduct graphical and statistical analyses

? Strong skills in written and oral communication of research results, in English and in French

Technical/computational skills:

? Strong competence in FORTRAN

? Strong competence with data, program and file management in UNIX

? Competence with analysis and scripting in MATLAB or similar analysis language

? Demonstrated skill in working with large and heterogeneous datasets

? Familiarity with super-computing environments (e.g., computing clusters)
