PhD Opportunity: Sediment Pathways & Connectivity at TU Delft
Delft University of Technology, , Netherlands
Apply before: 30 November 2023

How can we ensure that vulnerable coasts and deltas stay robust to climate change? We need sediment! Come help us understand our coastal systems as networks of interconnected sediment pathways as a PhD candidate at TU Delft! The main goal of this position is to develop novel approaches to quantify sediment pathways and connectivity, and to use these approaches to inform coastal sediment management.

We are looking for a curious and motivated PhD candidate to work with us on an exciting project here in the coastal engineering group at TU Delft ( in the Netherlands.
