CALL FOR PRE-DOCTORAL RESEARCHERS

 

vista

 

We are looking for highly motivated candidates to pursue a PhD in the field of Nature Based Solutions for Coastal Defense (subject: physical and numerical modelling of flow-ecosystem-sediment interaction).

The full-time PhD program at Universidad de Cantabria usually lasts 3-4 years.

PhD thesis will be advised by Professors Maria Maza and Javier L. Lara.

 

Tasks

· To develop his/her PhD Thesis in order to conduct original and significant research.

· To collaborate in research projects connected to the specific topic of the PhD

 

Example of scientific-technical specific tasks to be undertaken:

 

- Experimental analysis of sediment transport in vegetated fields.

- Experimental and numerical study of the drag forces to which different types of ecosystem are subjected under different flow conditions. The numerical study will be carried out by using CFD tools that allow including the detailed geometry of the ecosystem.

- Study of the attenuation of energy produced by real vegetation fields relating the induced energy attenuation with the biomass of the community.

- Development of new formulations for the quantification of the coastal protection provided by different ecosystems attending to the decrease of energy of the incident flow and to the capacity to hold the sediment and create soil.
