Closure DateFriday, March 01, 2019
The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering of the University of Missouri invites 
applicants for Ph.D. studies in Water Resources and Engineering starting in Spring 2019 or 
earlier. We seek one or two skilled and motivated individual(s) to work on various research 
projects related to turbulent mixing/transport and multiphase plumes. The candidates will 
perform routine office works on data analysis and/or lab/field experiments. One candidate will 
be fully supported by a recently funded GoMRI (Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative) project 
“Syn-bubbles: Synthesis of the physical processes in subsea bubble plume to connect natural 
seeps and oil spills”. This project will contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of 
multiphase flow systems in applications of oceanic natural seeps and subsea oil spills. 

The candidates will study fundamental and applied fluid dynamics problems in aquatic 
environments. Students with degree in Civil, Mechanical, and Ocean Engineering, or a closely 
relate field are encouraged to apply. Preferred qualifications include experiences in 
experimental/theoretical/computational fluid mechanics, environmental hydraulics, physical 
limnology/oceanography, wave dynamics, instrumentation programming, and one or more 
programing languages (Matlab, Python, C++, etc.). We are particularly interested in the 
candidates who have experiences with turbulence data analysis, use of PIV, ADV, ADCP, and 
computational fluid dynamics, etc. 

Interested candidates should contact Prof. Binbin Wang at and attach 
a curriculum vitae and a brief statement of research interests. To apply to the Department of 
Civil and Engineering graduate program, please visit 

The University of Missouri (known as Mizzou or MU) was found in 1839 as the first public 
university west of the Mississippi River. Mizzou is the state’s largest and most comprehensive 
university located in Columbia, Missouri. Mizzou is one of the nation’s top research institutions 
and one of 34 public universities that are members of the Association of American
