CU-SIM: Modeling and Analysis Skills for Sustainable Infrastructure Restoration
The Civil Engineering Department at Clemson University invites applications for twoGraduate Assistantships for Ph.D. Students to start August 2010. The Graduate Assistants will investigate the coupling of Single Phenomena Models into one Multi-Phenomena Model, and the application of statistical methods to quantify uncertainty, determine parameter sensitivity and infer parameter values from experiments.
During the course of their graduate education, the Ph.D. students will be expected to acquire relevant skills in

  1. Effect Screening,
  2. Sensitivity Analysis,
  3. Experimental Design,
  4. Sampling Techniques,
  5. Uncertainty Quantification,
  6. Model Verification and Validation and expertise in
  7. Statistical Inference for model Calibration.
Therefore, the suitable background of the doctoral student to accomplish these tasks in a timely manner, must include
  1. statistics,
  2. numerical modeling, and
  3. programming experience (e.g. Matlab, Fortran, C, C++, parallel computing, Unix programming and Linux) .

PhD Opportunity in Re-Os Geochemistry and Stratigraphy at Colorado State University, USA

Ph.D. Opportunity in Re-Os Isotope Geochemistry and Stratigraphy of Ordovician Graptolite Zones in Newfoundland.
We seek a highly motivated and creative Ph.D. student for a multi-disciplinary project funded by NSF. Innovation and diligence combined with the ability to assimilate cross-disciplinary literature are essential. The primary goal is the Re-Os dating of graptolites in a detailed biostratigraphic context. The student will be based with the AIRIE Program at Colorado State University, with a competitive stipend for at least two years.
The Re-Os work will dovetail with field studies, sequence stratigraphy, and graptolite taxonomy spearheaded by S. Egenhoff and J. Maletz and a PhD student focused on the stratigraphy.
