Would you like to become our new Assistant Professor Hydrodynamic and Morphodynamic Modelling of River Systems?

Interactions between hydraulics, morphodynamics, and ecology affect stakeholder needs such as flood safety, navigation, ecosystem services and possibilities for nature restoration in floodplains, stability of structures, and freshwater supply. The focus of your research is on analytical and numerical modelling of these interactions. You use field data and laboratory experiments to create insight on these interactions and to validate your models. You have expertise in benefitting from natural fluvial processes or nature-based solutions, particularly in the context of increased pressures induced by urbanisation and climate change.

You will conduct internationally leading research in the field of hydrodynamics and morphodynamics of engineered and natural river systems. You will (co-)supervise PhD and MSc students and assist them in disseminating research outcomes effectively through international, leading journals and conferences. The candidate initiates new research and is able to acquire funding for these projects through cooperation with the private sector, government and through EU or national (NWO) grants. Besides this, you will contribute to education on both BSc and MSc levels. You will also take part in management activities of the department or faculty, for instance, educational boards.


You as a succesfull candidate hold a PhD degree in Civil Engineering, Applied Physics, or Applied Mathematics. You pursue an academic career. You are capable of delivering high quality research as evidenced in the publication record. You like to set up your own research line and build your own research group while maintaining close links with other research areas. As our future colleague you have experience within the academic environment and are aware of inclusiveness values. Through your personality, you are able to cooperate effectively with peers, students, and stakeholders.
