Two PhD positions in ecohydraulics and environmental fluid mechanics at CSU in Fall2024
Colorado State University, Colorado, United States
Apply before: 19 January 2024

The Eco-Energy-Environmental Flow Physics (E3FP) Lab in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Colorado State University (CSU) is recruiting two Ph.D. students starting in Fall 2024 to work on topics in Eco-hydraulics, Sediment Transport, Environmental Fluid Mechanics, and Natural-based solutions. We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic students interested in exploring the complex, nonlinear interactions between environmental flows and the ecosystem, thereby contributing to developing improved restoration and efficient engineering designs under climate scenarios.

Students will have a chance to run hydrodynamic simulations on the super computing system and/or conduct hands-on laboratory experiments using state-of-the-art laser imaging flow measurement systems (e.g., PIV and PLIF) and the world-class innovative flume facilities at the Hydraulics Laboratory at CSU (

Formal applications to CSU with financial support are due on February 1, 2024, for the Fall 2024 semester (

Interested students are encouraged to email Dr. Chien-Yung Tseng ( with the title “Prospective graduate student”. It is recommended to contact me before January 19, 2024, to discuss the opportunities beforehand and see if the position fits. I also encourage eligible students to apply for other fellowships. Feel free to contact me in advance so that I can assist with your application.
