Academic Employment

Postdoctoral Scholar with Professor Brett Sanders

$48,216 – $50,316
Will remain open until filled

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Irvine is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work in coastal sediment dynamics in support of research addressing the future of coastal wetlands and beaches in southern California, considering the changing climate and watershed conditions. We are interested in advancing models that account for human influences such as dredging, beach nourishment, thin layer augmentation of wetlands, and watershed controls alongside natural processes for which models are quite mature.

Postdoctoral Scholar with Professor Kristen Davis
