Job description

We are looking for a bright and inspiring Post Doc researcher in the field of urban resource (water, energy, carbon, etc) system analysis and modelling at the Department of Environmental Technology (www.ete.wur.nl/UK/). Your research will focus on predicting the consequences and impact of different urban water infrastructural transitions (such as green-blue infrastructure, decentralised sanitation, resource recovery and reuse, etc) on urban environmental quality and livability in Amsterdam using geo-spatial tools.

The project aims to elucidate the impact of various urban infrastructure transitions on the dynamics of different urban resources both in terms of quantity and quality. You will develop a geo-spatial model to simulate this dynamic urban resource system using studies, simulations, and cases in Amsterdam. You will be interacting with several on-going PhDs working on urban system modelling. As such, you will play an important role within the urban system engineering (USE) group of our department. As a member of the department of Environmental Technology, you are expected to participate in our educational activities and our applications for research grants.

Part of your work will be performed at Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS), at which you will be asked to work closely with various local stakeholders in Amsterdam to co-develop, apply and validate this model.

Requirements

As PostDoc you are an ambitious, enthusiastic and creative scientist and a team player, devoted to research and education in the field of urban system modelling and analysis. You also have:
  • A PhD degree in environmental science/technology/engineering, water resource management, or related fields;
  • Advanced knowledge and expertise in geo-spatial analysis and related modelling/programming skills (e.g. Pythan);
  • Knowledge in physical/chemical/biological processes involved in urban resource transformation;
  • Experience in urban system or large environmental system modelling is a plus;
  • A talent to inspire PhD students and other researchers;
  • An ability to collaborate and interact with societal stakeholders;
  • Ability in acquisition and proposal writing for getting research funding;
  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Didactic qualities and enthusiasm for teaching and working with students.

Conditions of employment

A job at an organisation that will challenge you every day to provide our clients with the best possible solution. As Postdoc you will be part of an ambitious team working on a wide range of issues with plenty of scope for initiative. Personal input and responsibility are an integral part of our culture.

We offer a temporary position with an average working time of 40 hours per week for a period of 36 months. Gross salary from € 2709,-. till € 4274,- maximum per month - scale 10 based on experience and education level.
We not only offer a competitive salary but also good (study) leave and a pension of the ABP Pension Fund.
