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.

Assistant Professor/Lecturer in River and Delta Morphodynamics, Holland
Rivers, deltas and coasts have dynamic patterns of sand, mud and vegetation. These patterns are colourful, energetic, alive, and important to society. The Fluvial Research Group within the Department of Physical Geography aims to understand and forecast how these patterns form and change at time scales of a single flood to a millennium. Our research focuses on the dynamics of (i) river channels and floodplains, (ii) river deltas, and (iii) estuaries. We integrate state-of-the-art landscape experiments (aka analogue models) with computer models, field measurements, shallow coring and remote sensing observations on two planets. We explicitly address the interaction between the natural environment and human activities, such as coastal protection and nature restoration.

We seek a highly motivated individual to strengthen our research and teaching in river and estuary morphodynamics resulting from flow, sediment transport, biological interactions and human interference of the world’s fluvio-deltaic systems. As the new Assistant Professor you will develop a rigorous research programme in the field of river morphodynamics and contribute to our undergraduate and graduate teaching programme in earth sciences, concentrating on river (bio)morphodynamics, process-based fluvial sedimentology and deltaic systems. You are expected to take full responsibility for one or two courses, in particular River Systems (MSc) and to contribute to others. The teaching load is about 40-50%. You will supervise bachelor’s and master’s thesis projects, co-supervise PhD candidates and acquire funding for new projects.
