Postdoctoral Associate - Mud Transport Processes Near the Bed
Virginia Tech, Virginia, United States
Start reviewing process: 7 October 2019

A postdoctoral associate is sought to join a team of researchers from Virginia Tech and Indiana University working to understand and model the transport of mud in currents. Recent work in this area has pointed to the presence of mud traveling along the bed either as individual flocculated aggregates or in low-density mud ripples under a range of flow conditions. The aim of the project is to better understand the transport of mud moving along the bed and the exchange processes of particles and flocs into and out of this layer. The postdoctoral associate will be responsible for overseeing and executing the experiments associated with the project. The experiments will primarily be run at Indiana University in collaboration with Juergen Schieber. To fulfill the duties of the position, it is expected that the postdoctoral associate will spend 50% of their time in Blacksburg, VA and 50% of their time in Bloomington.
