The post is part of the emerging interest for including equity and justice concerns in the planning and management of large-scale water systems, particularly for transboundary river basins involving competing multisectoral dynamics. The research will focus on:

  • Integration of equity and justice concerns in many-objective tradeoff analysis. 
  • Application of cooperative game theory principles (e.g., stability) for analyzing tradeoff solutions. 
  • Many-objective design of water management solutions including equity and justice as additional operational objectives.

Qualifications for this position include a Ph.D. in water resources engineering, hydrology, or a related field of environmental engineering. Alternatively, candidates having a background in operations research, applied mathematics, and automation and control are also encouraged to apply. The successful candidate is experienced with water resources systems operation design, multiobjective optimization, real time control of water resources systems. Strong numerical and computational skills are required as well as English language skills both in oral and written communication.

The application package must include CV, list of publications, and the name of two references. Deadline for the package submission: 2 September 2020.
