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.

Marie Sklodowska-CurIe Early Stage Researcher, University of Strathclyde, UK
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has been successful in an application under the Horizon 2020 programme for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (H2020 Marie Curie Actions grant number 675762). The project ‘Training Engineers and Researchers to Rethink geotechnical Engineering for a low carbon future’ (TERRE) is led by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde and includes participants from UK, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Germany and Switzerland.
 
The candidate will be responsible for the research undertaken at Strathclyde on the development of engineered biofilms to protect geotechnical infrastructure from erosion (e.g. flood embankments). This research is highly multi-disciplinary and will involve microbiological laboratory techniques and geotechnical testing of treated soil and interfaces. The successful candidate will develop experimental methods for the growth of biofilms on soil interfaces in the laboratory and investigate the microscale and macroscale hydro-mechanical properties of the resulting engineered interfaces and consider their implementation within specific geotechnical applications.
