We are looking for a colleague who will teach, develop, and organise courses in the field of hydraulic infrastructure. In the education programme, new developments in the hydraulic engineering field should be continuously implemented. You will supervise Bsc and MSc students for internship, project and thesis work. Depending on your expertise you will become responsible for one or more of the following courses in the field of hydraulic infrastructure: Introduction to hydraulic engineering (CT2320), Hydraulic Structures 1 (CIE3330) and / or 2 (CIE513), Probabilistic design (CIE4130), Probabilistic design in hydraulic engineering (CIE5310), Flood Defences (CIE5314), Breakwaters and closure dams (CIE5308).
You should ideally have a special interest in the fields of probabilistic design / reliability analysis, flood defences (structures and earthen) or coastal structures. A background and interest in one or more of these fields would be particularly welcome. A good network in academia, the private sector, government and research institutes in the Netherlands is useful.
As lecturer, the coordination of the hydro-geotechnical and IDM (Integral Design and Management) annotations and the supervision of MSc students in these programmes are part of your job description. In addition, contributions to faculty and university-wide (project- and design-based) education tasks are foreseen.


Applicants should have the following qualifications:
• MSc or PhD degree in civil engineering or another relevant degree.
• Relevant experience in and good knowledge of disciplines such as hydraulics / fluid mechanics, structural, geotechnical, systems engineering and / or probabilistic methods.
• Demonstrated experience or at least affinity with the design, management and / or execution of hydraulic engineering projects.
• Experience in in academic teaching and / or delivery and development of course programmes for engineering professionals.
• Team player mentality, enthusiasm (particularly for education), communication skills, results orientation, independence.
Depending on the background of the candidate, research tasks can also be added to the profile.


The TU Delft offers an attractive, customisable compensation and benefits package, including a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution.

Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.

Faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) provides leading international research and education, with innovation and sustainability as central themes. Research and education are closely interwoven and address societal challenges. The Faculty consists of the departments of Transport and Planning, Structural Engineering, Geoscience and Engineering, Water Management, Hydraulic Engineering, and Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

The Hydraulic Structures and Flood Risk (HSFR) section focuses on research and education related to hydraulic engineering systems and structures, probabilistic design and flood risk management. The group aims to do top-level research and provides excellent academic education for future generations of (hydraulic) engineers. Research and education are based on the traditionally strong Dutch skills in flood protection (e.g. Delta works) and recently developed approaches in the field of reliability- and risk-based design of hydraulic infrastructure.
