Switzerland is the world’s most innovative research countries and has a long tradition of attracting international students and researchers. Here is some practical advice to help you settle in quickly.
The postdoctoral research will be part of the national interdisciplinary research project Riverscapes. The research will focus on numerical modelling of suspended sediment transport in compound channels with or without vegetation on floodplains. Consequently, the research work will include the development of a depth-averaged numerical model by extending the existing software BASEMENT, validation of the model with experimental data and application to situations as found in restored river reaches.
We offer an attractive research environment at a leading hydraulic research institute with excellent infrastructure and a friendly working atmosphere in a young and ambitious team. The project duration will be 2 years with an ideal starting date in early 2019.
