Research Fellow, Civil Engineering
The Tropical Marine Science Institute’s EMID research group is looking for numerical modeller who will perform wave and hydrodynamic modelling with the focus to elucidate how physico-chemical components impact ecology in the tropical marine/coastal environment. The candidate (s) should be self-motivated, driven, with a keen interest in research and be prepared to work as a part of a team that carries out field sampling, laboratory and numerical modelling work.
The successful candidate should have a good understanding of hydrodynamic modelling, impact assessment; and possess the experience to model coastal and marine physico-chemical and ecological processes. The candidate is required to be able to independently develop required models and/or to use provided models for the required focus areas.
Successful candidates will be appointed on a 12-month contract, renewable subject to performance and funding availability.
Candidates are expected to commence work immediately.
- Possess a PhD in a relevant field e.g. Civil Engineering; Oceanography; Environmental Engineering.
- Experience with wave, hydrodynamic and sediment transport modelling using open-source and/or commercial software packages such as Delft3D, MIKE3, SWAN, SWASH, XBeach etc.
- Knowledge in programming software such as Matlab, R, Python etc.
- Proficient with basic Microsoft Suite and geospatial information systems
- Effective oral and written communication skills
