East China Normal University (ECNU), one of the most prestigious universities in China, is looking for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant. The State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (SKLEC) position holder will work on the project “understanding WAve-VEgetation-Structure interaction for developing Ecosystem-based coastal defence” (WAVES), which aims to provide fundamental theory and methods for developing Ecosystem-based Coastal Engineering in practice.

The responsibilities of the post include carrying out vigorous, high-level research in the area of wave-vegetation-structure interaction with an emphasis on the impact of vegetation on wave nonlinearity, overtopping and induced sediment transport. The role is expected to involve developing vegetation modules into the state-of-the-art wave-sediment model suite, collecting laboratory and field data, conducting numerical modelling and data analysis, and submitting publications regularly in referred journals.
