Interesting MSc funding opportunity: quite a nice bursary available for a qualified candidate, to assist with some important research. From the site (see link for further details)...
Master studentships in modelling of microflow and biofilm growth

Based on further funding confirmation, we are seeking outstanding candidates 
to undertake cutting-edge research on computational sustainability and 
environmental analytics. This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic 
and ambitious researchers to use state-of-the-art approaches to make an 
impact in a fast-moving field of research.

The student will be a member of the CAIP Research Chair team at Athabasca 
University, Alberta, Canada. The objective of the CAIP program is to use a 
multidisciplinary and multi-scale analysis by integrating modeling of 
biogeochemical and hydrological processes. The student will develop a model 
of integrated lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) and individual-based model (iBM) 
for modelling organic matter degradation by microorganisms in porous media 
and validation experiments. 


• A Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, computer science, physics, 
engineering, or other closely related fields
• Experience in lattice Boltzmann model or computational fluid dynamics.
• Experience in individual-Based model or molecular dynamics simulations.
• Strong skills and experience with programing languages (C, C++, or 
Fortran) and coding and ability to design concept of model, algorithms and 
• A record of peer-reviewed scientific publication
• Ability to work independently, self-motivated  and to efficiently deliver 
results on time
• Ability and desire to work in a closely cooperating interdisciplinary team
• A plus in experience of parallel computation, experiments of microflow, 
and GC-MS
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in both modeling and 
validation, with experience in conducting model testing and coding. This 
master studentship is for a period of 2.5 years. 
      All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians 
and permanent residents will be given priority. The selection will begin 
consideration of applicants on May 30, 2017; the competition will remain 
open until suitable candidate is appointed and shortlisted applicants will 
be informed. How to apply for the position, send an email to Prof Junye Wang 
at with a detailed CV, transcripts, a cover letter 
about your interest for the position and rationale for your suitability, and 
name and address of three referees.
