The postdoc work will be executed at the WEM group, part of the Civil Engineering Department, University of Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands. Within the UT, under the Faculty of Engineering Technology (ET), you will be part of the Water Engineering and Management (WEM) group, a team of approximately 60 academics and PhD’s in the topics of marine, coastal and river systems, sedimentary processes, water footprint and policy studies. For more information on the WEM group: https://www.utwente.nl/en/et/wem/. The postdoc will be supervised by the mentor listed under project description.
Scientists, teachers and students of the University of Twente (UT) feel a responsibility to develop societal relevant solutions, in order to be prepared for an unpredictable and highly changeable future. The coming years, the UT will focus on five scientific themes (link). The Theme “Engineering for a resilient world” brings together researchers from three faculties (ITC, BMS and ET) and started in 2018.
Within this theme, we aim to understand key physical processes in order to design a resilient world. In the first year, we will follow a bottom-up approach in which we identify the main UT-strengths and the most promising challenges for the UT to work on within this theme. Therefore, we aim to write three inter-disciplinary position papers, initiated by 3 Postdoc researchers (appointed for 5 months), on the follow topics:
We search ambitious researchers with a PhD in (civil) engineering, natural sciences, environmental sciences or behavioral sciences and open for inter-disciplinary research on one of the three topics.
