Birmingham City University (BCU) is hiring a PhD student to improve the hydraulic and hydrologic design of constructed wetlands within its Environment & Policy research group.
Using an integrated approach, the student will study the processes related to hydraulic criteria and mixing patterns for optimization of constructed wetlands efficiency and prediction of pollution mitigation into downstream waterways through quantification of hydrodynamics and transport processes.
The student is expected to generate a unique database about treatment, mixing and physical characteristics of the systems obtained through field experiments, including tracer studies. Numerical modelling tools are to be applied on the validated obtained datasets of mixing, treatment and physical parameters.
For informal academic enquiries please contact the academic supervisor, Dr. Vasiliki Ioannidou (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the Environment & Policy research group at BCU.
