A research opportunity for a two-year position is available at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at University of Hawaii at Manoa (http://www.cee.hawaii.edu/). The position is available to begin immediately and will be open until filled.

This position will focus on coastal engineering, specifically in developing long term solutions for shoreline protection. Specifically, the position involves performing an ADCIRC modeling study, statistical analysis, and conceptual drawings for shoreline protection. The candidate will also assist with researching and developing methodology and criteria used to identify and prioritize sites for mitigation. Some field work to the sites will be involved. The candidate will also assist with administrative duties for the project and helping to manage the Hydraulics Laboratory at the University of Hawaii.

Applicants must have received a doctoral degree in civil/coastal engineering, physical oceanography, or atmospheric science, or related field. A strong background in spatial analysis and statistics and hydrodynamic modeling, and/or shoreline protection experience will be given priority.

For Engineering -In-Training (EIT) applicants, work experience under this internship may count towards the Professional Engineering (PE) licensure.

Interested applicants should contact Oceana Francis (oceanaf@hawaii.edu) for more details about the position.  Please include your CV in the email contact.
