Vacancies: Internship Research Positions in Environmental Water and Water Waves at LabMath-Indonesia
Oleh : LabMath-Indonesia
Jumat, 26 Juni 2009 (20:34 WIB) dari IP 220.127.116.11
LabMath-Indonesia is an independent research institute. We work together with various universities in Indonesia and abroad. This is shown in our activities:
We regularly organize so-called Research Work Shops where students (S1,S2 and S3) and staff from universities, governmental institutions and companies, are introduced into a specific topic. After one week of courses and small assignments, the second week is dedicated to execute more extensive projects that usually are closely related to current research. As an example, in the past year we organized RWS on Tsunami Modelling and Simulations (January 2009), Financial Engineering (August 2008) and Integrated Water Resource Management (Jan 2008).
Our research activities are supported by external sources: international research projects, projects from large , and from Indonesia.
In the coming years we want to focus our activities to problems from nature and environmental sciences. Especially about problems that are of direct relevance for Indonesia: effects of Climate Change on the coastal area (high waves, endangering the coast and ships and offshore structures) and on the (rain) water availability for agriculture and human consumption.
This year we have national and international symposia on these topics. For the preparation of new research contributions, and for the running research projects, we can use the help of good students and graduates.
While working with you on interesting topics, you are developing your skills; besides that, if needed, we support you to improve your English. If you want, we can advise about studying abroad. (For instance, LMI hosts the Info & Support Office of the University of Twente.)
Below we indicate some topics for which we look for your interest to contribute to our research.
MODELING AND MEASURING EVAPOTRANSPIRATION
Almost half of the rain falling on the ground is evaporated or transpirated by plants. BMKG, the Indonesian Institute for Meteorology, Climate and GeoScience, wants to be able to predict the ET. For that aim we want to make a model based on rainfall, soil properties, and weather conditions, in particular the wind. We will use satellite data to improve the predictive models that we make.
Two students from the university of Twente visiting LMI will also work on this topic, so that a close collaboration can lead to substantial results in a recently granted KNAW-mobility Project.
We want to use new codes that have been developed at LMI to simulate waves in a harbour to predict the maximal wave heights and investigate undesired resonant motions. A realistic Indonesian harbour is taken as test case.
This project is in collaboration with UGM.
WIND GENERATION OF OCEAN WAVES
Climate change will lead to stronger winds and therefore to higher waves. Wave prediction in the coastal area is important for coastal safety measures. This project is aimed to contribute to the development of a complete simulation environment for coastal waves.
We have various problems that are directly or indirectly related to ship design and safety of sea transport.
Internship Research positions: Offer
The internships are executed at LabMath-Indonesia, Jl. Anatomi 19, Bandung. Including a one-month probation period, the positions are for a period of 3 months with the possibility of prolongation. During the execution you will get valuable experience in mathematical modelling and will work in a stimulating environment. The monthly allowance will depend on qualifications and performance.
The internships are planned to start not later than 1 May 2009.
Candidates should be eager to be involved in this research and learn many new topics and ideas. They should have good knowledge of calculus/ analysis including ordinary and partial differential equations, and be experienced in programming, for instance in Matlab. Students or graduates with good grades in S1 or S2 from mathematics, physics, oceanography, geosciences, engineering etc can profit very much from this research experience. A sound scientific attitude (critical, inventive and independent) should be accompanied by a strong motivation and disciplined work attitude.
Candidates should send an updated CV, a copy of last degree and academic record, proof of English proficiency and letter of motivation before 15 April 2009 by email to:
Dr. A. Sopaheluwakan firstname.lastname@example.org with cc to Prof. Brenny van Groesen email@example.com.
