Graduate Fellowship Description
PDF (Civil/Hydrodynamic Modeling) - Sediment resuspension, movement, and fate post-dam removal - The PDF will develop, calibrate and validate a hydrodynamic model that includes the entire study area of the reservoir and river reach.
The project will then integrate the bathymetric surveys and reservoir sediment volume, grain size, and spatial distribution analyses into “Delft3d” model that simulates the interaction of water and sediment (both suspended and bed total load) in time and space (http://oss.deltares.nl/web/delft3d).
Long- and short-term morphological changes and sediment distributions will be predicted to best understand how disturbed materials will move in the water column and their ultimate fate.
This dynamic-bed model will simulate seasonal stream flows to investigate the optimal timetable for the dam removal to mitigate downstream effects of suspended sediment concentration and spatial patterns of sediment deposition.

Prospective candidates should email a cover letter, CV, unofficial university transcripts and contact information for three people who can serve as references. The cover letter must clearly indicate the project being applied for, and outline how the candidate’s previous experience has prepared him/her to function as a leader of the respective MAES study component, and what specific qualifications the candidate will bring to the large, multidisciplinary MAES Team.
Review of applicants for the projects starting in summer 2014 will begin 21 February 2014 and continue until the positions are filled. Ideal start date for 2014 projects is in March/April. For positions starting 2015, applications can be provided until fall of 2014.
Send complete application packages to Project Manager Gordon Yamazaki by email ([email protected]).
