In various scientific/training projects over the past years, LMI has been very successful in developing new software for water wave simulations that can be used for applications in coastal engineering. The software, that has been developed in collaboration with UTwente for the major part by Indonesian students, is now being licensed to a limited number of Dutch companies in the maritime sector.
In order to be better able to fulfill one of the aims of LMI to disseminate the results of math-modelling & simulation to Indonesian activities, a special division has been created to actively approach and answer the Indonesian needs in the coastal zone.
In the new division NeXT Ocean Indonesia, headed by Dr. Didit Adytia, wave modelling services (phase-averaged and time-accurate) can be executed on project basis. If interesting unsolved problems are encountered, these can be taken as topics for research and training at LMI, so that a useful interaction between research and relevant applications can develop.
In the Scientific Programme Indonesia-Netherlands, candidates are sought for 5 PhD-positions, to be executed in Netherlands and Indonesia.
2 positions are in a project with UGM, University of Twente and Alterra on "Modelling land use impacts on water availability and demand"; candidates with a master degree (or equivalent) in hydrology, civil engineering, applied mathematics or a related field can apply for a Training and Selection Workshop from 14-19 january 2013 at LMI in Bandung, see the announcement, and register online at Events
For 3 PhD-positions in a project "Helminth infections and type 2 diabetes mellitus in Indonesia", see details here
. Candidates with a recent MD and MSc in biomedical science, or MSc in Social Science, e.g. Anthropology or MSc in statistics, biostatistics or mathematics can apply. The promising candidates will be invited to attend a 2 day workshop (23 and 24 January 2013) and ½ day evaluation (25 January 2013) at UI in Jakarta.
Introductory Course (4-6 January) and Workshop (9-13 January) by leading international scientists,
