IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Graduate Opportunities Available, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth
Graduate student opportunities are available in the Coastal Engineering and Fluid Mechanics Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.A variety of potential research projects include:
-Stratified turbulence and mixing: A comparison of recent field data from a variety of river plume and upper ocean mixed layer environments, existing laboratory data, and numerical modeling results will be used to assess the importance of physical scale in determining mixing and entrainment rates in stratified-shear environments.
-Renewable energy:Design and analysis of innovative wave energy, and low head hydro applications will be undertaken.Both of these projects will involve a mix of analytical and numerical modeling, along with targeted laboratory testing, to develop cost effective and robust solutions to renewable energy problems.
The successful candidate(s) will have a Bachelor's degree in engineering or the physical sciences, with a strong background in fluid dynamics, excellent oral and written communication skills, competency with engineering tools such as MATLAB and AutoCAD, and a deep desire to further their education in one of the above areas.Initial acceptances are expected into the M.S. program, although well qualified candidates may have the opportunity to enroll directly into the Ph.D. program.
Interested students should contact Dr. Daniel MacDonald (dmacdonald@umassd.edu <mailto:dmacdonald@umassd.edu>), and include a current CV and a brief description of their background and interests.Students will also be required to apply through the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Graduate Program (http://www.umassd.edu/graduate/).
