4 Research Fellow positions at University of Salento, Italy


Job Summary:
as part of the Italian research project titled START “SisTemi di rApid map-ping e
contRollo del Territorio costiero e marino” (fast mapping and control of the
Coastal and Marine zones), the School of Engineering at the University of
Salento invites applicants for 18 months lasting Research Fellow positions
in Coastal Engineering.
The main subject of the research focuses on the offshore wave climate
study and on the practical and operative use of numerical wave models for
the simulation of the (i) propagation of waves from the open sea to the
nearby coastal zones and (ii) morphodynamic evolution of beaches due to
sediment transport processes. The numerical results obtained by the morphodynamic
study will be compared with analysis of historical maps, remotely sensed data and
geomorphological observations.

Required Qualifications:
Applicants must be aged under 35 years and must have a Ph.D. or 3-years of
equivalent research experience at postgraduate level. The successful
candidate should demonstrate ability to establish/conduct a productive
research program.

Preferred Qualifications:
Candidates with familiarity with numerical modelling of waves/circulation
and morphodinamic processes will be preferred (e.g. MIKE21,SMS,
