The sediment transport research team at the University of Kentucky Civil Engineering Department announces the availability of fully-funded PhD assistantships and MS+PhD assistantships in the following research areas: hydrology and biogeochemistry; watershed sedimentation; and turbulence and sediment transport. Graduate students will utilize a balance of field, laboratory and modeling research methods that advance environmental sensors networks, stable isotope tracers, and new numerical platforms. Applicants should convey their ability to work on multiple projects at a given time. Applicants should also convey their interest in writing numerous peer-reviewed journal papers that will prepare them for a career in technical research. Preference will be given to candidates with careers focused on academics, government research, or private sector research.
Due to the nature of the funding source, applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents, and international students are not eligible for these assistantships. The Department of Civil Engineering is committed to enhancing the diversity of our graduate student cohort.
Interested candidates should email (1) a detailed resume, (2) a 200 word (maximum) research interest statement, (3) a 50 word (maximum) career interest statement, and (4) official or unofficial transcripts to [email protected] no later than January 12, 2018.
