EPFL's School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC)is currently broadly strengthening its activities in Hydraulics and invites applications for aFaculty position. Appointments at all levels will be considered.
We are seekingcandidates with an outstanding research background in the broad field of Hydraulics and Water Infrastructures in relation to Civil Engineering. Topics of interest include but are not limited to industrial and environmental fluid dynamics, experimental and computational fluid mechanics from small to large scales, river training works and restoration,ecohydraulics, hydraulic energy, turbulence, fluid-structure interaction, water resources, hydraulic structures including in particular hydropower plants and dams, and urban hydraulics. Expertise in experimental methods would be an asset. The successful candidate will have a deep fundamental research background in hydraulics, as well as the potential to develop an innovative and internationally recognized research program leading to an outstanding record of scientific accomplishments.
As a faculty member of the Civil Engineering Section, he/she will excel in undergraduate and graduate teaching and supervise doctoral students.
