IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Research Associate in Computational Hydraulics, Cardiff, UK
Professors Thorsten Stoesser and Roger Falconer of the Hydro-environmental Research Centre of the Cardiff School of Engineering have recently been awarded an EPSRC research grant.   
The main aim of this project is to refine a CFD model that allows accurate predictions of the flow over rough beds in open channels. 
The RA is expected to: 
· refine an existing large-eddy simulation code to allow predictions of free surface open-channel flows. 
· analyse statistical flow data and compare simulation results with measured data. 
· work as part of a team and in collaboration with the partner university in delivering the research programme. 
· produce work of publishable quality for appropriate peer reviewed journals and international conference proceedings and present the findings to the wider community. 
· A PhD degree, or expected to obtain one soon, in a relevant subject area.  
· Evidence of the ability to engage in, and contribute to, writing and publishing research papers in refereed journals 
· Evidence of ability to be self-motivated and to work independently. 
· Experience of development and use of computer code to solve (environmental) fluid dynamics problems
· Expertise in two (or more) of the following four research fields, 
   -computational fluid dynamics
   -large-eddy or direct numerical simulation 
   -free-surface flows 
   -parallel computing
