MSc and PhD opportunities currently exist for research on: i) airflow and sand transport dynamics over beaches and dunes, ii) beach-dune erosion and recovery morphodynamics, iii) terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and/or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) quantification of beach-dune morphodynamics and sediment budgets, and iv) interactions between coastal dune vegetation, airflow dynamics and sand transport interactions.
Interested applicants should have a BSc or MSc with first class standing in Physical Geography, Earth Sciences, or related natural sciences. Please contact Dr. Ian Walker via email directly and include:
- a statement of research interest that aligns with current CEDD lab initiatives;
- a CV that includes 3 references (including past academic supervisors);
- a copy of transcripts showing grades obtained.
Thank you for your interest in the CEDD Lab!
