New Researcher Internships

Internships Available

Project: Current+Wave induced bedform dynamics in mixed cohesive and non-cohesive sediments

Facility, Location: Total Environment Simulator, Hull

Date: 5th-23rd August 2019

Duration: up to 12 days

Key skills to be acquired: Experiments looking at the morphodynamic evolution of sediment beds with varying degrees of cohesive material will be conducted in the Total Environment Simulator, University of Hull. The main goal of the experiments is to look at the formation and evolution of combined flow ripples and of particular interest are the processes of clay winnowing and pumping.

Project: Current+Wave induced bedform dynamics in mixed cohesive and non-cohesive sediments

Duration: up to 12 days

Key skills to be acquired: Experimental methods in hydraulics; mixed sediments; flow measurements; and bed morphology.

Brief outlines of tasks: Experiments looking at the morphodynamic evolution of sediment beds with varying degrees of cohesive material will be conducted in the Total Environment Simulator, University of Hull. The main goal of the experiments is to look at the formation and evolution of combined flow ripples and of particular interest are the processes of clay winnowing and pumping. As part of these experiments, we would like to host a visiting researcher/student for two weeks. The visitor could be at any career stage and either interested in gaining some experimental experience or someone working in a related topic who would like to complement their current work.

Financial support: Travel (within EU), accommodation and expenses will be provided through Hydralab+

Requested: 1 page CV + short motivation letter with available dates

Deadline: 19 July 2019
