FRF internship opportunity

The U.S. Army Engineer Research Development Center’s Coastal and Hydraulics Lab has a paid student internship opportunity in Duck, North Carolina at the Field Research Facility (FRF) for Summer 2020 (start dates are flexible). The FRF is a coastal observatory which focuses on field measurements of waves, currents and resultant bathymetric change with a particular emphasis on improving our understanding of storm impacts to our coastal environment. Measurements include traditional in-situ wave and current measurements, extensive remote sensing observations (video, lidar, radar), as well as high-resolution bathymetric surveys.

The internship opportunity will focus on exploring the capabilities of a robotic bottom crawling amphibious vehicle to collect measurements in the surf-zone, including waves, currents, and bathymetry as a means to expand our measurement capability. Additionally, the work will also assess the platform’s operational capability in a wide range of environmental conditions. The ideal candidate is a MS/PhD student in robotics (navigation, sensing, system integration, etc.), engineering, or oceanography with robotic experience. Experience with ocean sensors (pressure, acoustic communications/sensing, etc.) or positioning sensors (IMUs, DVLs, LBL, USBL, etc.) along with programing, code development, and data analysis skills are a plus.  This opportunity is limited to US citizens. If you are interested, please submit a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcript to spicer.bak@erdc.dren.mil no later than 3 April 2020.
