About the program
Civil Engineering and Geosciences
The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) provides leading international research and education, with innovation and sustainability as central themes. Research and education are closely interwoven and address societal challenges. The Faculty consists of the departments of Transport and Planning, Structural Engineering, Geoscience and Engineering, Water Management, Hydraulic Engineering, and Geoscience and Remote Sensing.
The Department of Hydraulic Engineering is mainly concerned with major surface waters such as rivers, estuaries, and seas. The focus is on understanding, designing, and implementing human interventions in the natural environment for the discharge of water, for protection against water, and for transport over water. Within the department, the Environmental Fluid Mechanics section focuses on the physical and mathematical aspects of free-surface water motion and directly contributes to the work of sections in the department.
The Environmental Fluid Mechanics section is concerned with the fundamental fluid-mechanical aspects of processes in rivers, estuaries, coastal zones, and oceans. The following research themes can be distinguished: wave dynamics, physical oceanography, shallow environmental flows and turbulence, and numerical fluid mechanics. Field observations, laboratory experiments, and numerical modelling are considered key ingredients of successful research with relevance for practical applications. How the circulation near coasts and in the deep ocean interact is an important sub-theme within the section.
Conditions of employment
The TU Delft offers an attractive, customisable compensation and benefits package, including a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers day care, before- and after-school care and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
