Projects are open-ended and will be motivated by student interest. I especially encourage applications from students with backgrounds in Earth Science, Materials Science, Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering, though students from other backgrounds with relevant interests are encouraged to reach out as well.
Possible projects include, but are not limited to:
- Fish-spawning controls on fluvial sediment transport, involving small-scale experiments and/or modeling
- Unraveling the role of grain shape in sediment transport, involving fieldwork with river tracer cobbles, experiments, and/or modeling
- Using photoelastic particles to understand force chain development in granular materials
- Dynamics of frost heave in arctic soils
- CFDEM (computational fluid dynamics/discrete element method) simulations of sediment-fluid interactions
If you’re interested in working with me, I welcome you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send a brief description of your background and interests along with a resume or CV. The deadline to submit a formal application to the university is January 5, 2024.
I strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups (or members of groups typically under-represented in geosciences and higher education). The University of Rochester is committed to creating a diverse workplace and an inclusive community. UR is a highly ranked research university, and the Rochester area's cultural, educational, and recreational assets frequently place it among the best places to live and work!
