As the current state-of-the-art hydraulic marine models are becoming increasingly complex we ask for a numerical modeler who knows the state-of-the-art engineering models as Delft3D, SWAN and XBeach and who is also a specialist in numerical schemes and CFD models to model tides, waves, sediment transport and morphodynamics. The Assistant professor will provide the tools to carry out numerical experiments in designing and testing Nature-Based Solutions. Moreover, this Assistant professor will work on more applied and/or detailed modelling, next to idealised modelling, bridging the gap towards specific solutions as e.g. wind farms, pipelines and sand mining. For a balanced composition of our team, we have a preference for a person having a civil engineering background.

Teaching: The new assistant professor will take her part in the teaching tasks of our group. We think of a combination of several courses, e.g. BSc course in Fluid Dynamics, parts of the MSc courses in Long waves, Short waves, Building with Nature and/or a MSc Python course. She will also supervise graduation projects at BSc and MSc level. The total teaching load will be about 40%. If the candidate is not yet formally qualified for teaching at universities, this qualification needs to be obtained within 2 years, for which a training program is offered (University Teaching Qualification, UTQ).

Research: We are looking for an independent researcher who is able to identify the academic questions in practical applications related to marine hydraulics and vice versa: to translate academic research results into engineering practice. She is able to attract (external) research funding (scientific research grants and funding from third parties) for PDEng, PhD and Postdoc positions. Also, she acts as a daily supervisor of these researchers. Next, she has a strong track record in publishing papers in international peer-reviewed journals and has the potential to coach junior researchers in doing so.

General: The candidate has a successful track record in numerical modelling of marine hydraulics, state-of-the art knowledge of hydraulic programs (e.g. Delft3D, SWAN, XBeach, Comsol, OpenFoam or similar) as well as knowledge on numerical schemes and surrogate models. We look for a person who is enthusiastic about working in a team of academics, and who feels committed to teaching (in the BSc and MSc programmes in Civil Engineering and Management) and to supervising junior researchers. The candidate is capable and willing to maintain good (national and international) contacts with consultants, knowledge institutes and the government.
