PhD Opportunity in Debris Flow Research

PhD Opportunity

Dr Elisabeth Bowman is actively seeking a prospective PhD student to conduct research within the Rosetta Stone Network working towards a common understanding of debris flows.

The project involves experimental testing of debris flow mechanics in collaboration with a number of universities in Europe and North America. It will include several trips to visit the laboratories of these universities. The project experiments and travel are fully supported by the Leverhulme Trust. Competitive scholarships are available through the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield as well as through other routes to work on the project.
Interested candidates should contact Dr Bowman directly for further information.
