Professor Manuel Díez-Minguito, from the Department of Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group / Hydraulic Engineering Department at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group of the University of Granada is an interdisciplinary, high-performance team comprised of six professors and more than twenty researchers including Post-Docs, PhD and MS students. Our mission is to gain fundamental knowledge of the ocean-atmosphere-land interactions to provide creative solutions to social challenges in a changing world. Outstanding research lines are the study of physical and biogeochemical processes in shelf seas, estuaries, and beaches; the integrated management and risk analysis of coastal environments, catchment areas, and structures; and the numerical, experimental, and analytical modelling of marine and freshwater systems.

Wind is one the most significant forcing of the circulation and sediment transport in many low-lying coastal areas, such as estuaries. The wind effects on subtidal sea levels and both barotropic and baroclinic currents have been widely explored by analytical and numerical modelling. However, there is a lack of fundamental knowledge on the basic processes regarding the wind-induced sediment transport and the wind-topography interaction. The project will look at observations and laboratory experiments to understand how wind-topography interaction modifes sediment transport in estuaries and coastal areas. Part of the work will be done in the laboratory facilities of the Andalusian Institute for Earth System Research, in particular the atmosphere-Ocean interaction flume (http://gdfa.ugr.es/homepage/ciao/) and the wave tank (http://gdfa.ugr.es/homepage/lab-instrumentation/).
