Finding the PhD student to study in Water Quality Management at Kyungpook National University (KNU) is one of the leading national universities in Korea.
The PhD candidate will work on field measurement and numerical studies for flocculation and fate/transport of cohesive sediment in the water environment. She/he will participate in field investigation on hydrodynamics, water quality, and fluid mud dynamics in a river or lake, especially regarding cohesive sediment. She/he will then analyze the measured data with various geo-spatial and statistical tools. She/he will be involved in development and application of the flocculation kinetics to a large-scale, multi-dimensional cohesive sediment transport model. The task will include implementation of flocculation kinetics to an open-source CFD code, such as TELEMAC and OpenFoam.
Eligibility: Master or bachelor degree holding candidates with academic background from environmental, chemical, civil engineering or other related academic disciplines are encouraged to apply. A valid English proficiency test score (TOEFL 530(CBT 197, iBT 71), IELTS 5.5, CEFR B2, TEPS 600, TOEIC 700 or higher) is required for students from non-English-speaking countries.
How to Apply & Procedure:
Candidates should send required documents (CV, copies of academic transcripts and English test result) by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org before 18 October 2020.
