PhD Positions in Coastal Hydrodynamics, Coastal Hydrology and Remote Sensing at Boston University
Boston University, Massachusetts, United States
Apply before: 19 December 2022

We are looking for PhD students for Fall 2023

We have three projects available:

  1. Determination of the resilience of salt marshes by coupling remote sensing data (Landsat, Sentinel, ALOS) and high-resolution numerical models (Delft3D and ROMS). This project is funded by NASA and will take place along the US eastern shore, from Massachusetts to Georgia
  2. Quantification of biogeochemical fluxes in Plum Island Sound using a numerical model and datasets collected in the field. This project is in collaboration with the Plum Island Ecosystems Long-Term Ecological Research (PIE-LTER)
  3. Characterization of the hydrology of the boundary between salt marshes and coastal forests with high resolution measurements of groundwater and soil moisture. This project is part of the Coastal Critical Zone Network (CZN) and the Virginia Coast Reserve Long-Term Ecological Research (VCR-LTER)

The application deadline at Boston University is December 19 2022, for more information go to or send me an email
