IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Post Doc position on River Restoration and Flood Protection Measures and Strategies - Cottbus, Germany
The environmental engineering company gerstgraser Ingenieurbüro für Renaturierung (gIR) located in Cottbus, Germany, is offering a position for an ER for 2 years within HYTECH starting March 2014. The aim of the project at gIR is to reveal synergy effects of river restoration and flood protection measures and strategies. Water authorities and thus hydraulic engineering companies have the task to develop management strategies and plans for implementing both the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Floods Directive. The directives can have contradicting demands, however, there is a potential for measures and strategies which support the requirements of each other. Recommendations for a goaloriented, cost-efficient and sustainable implementation of statutory requirements will be elaborated. This will be achieved by developing an exemplar management plan for a river basin including specific requirements of stakeholders. The results will be generalised leading to recommendations for the compilation of management plans which balance the needs of both directives.

The HYTECH Initial Training Network involves 10 full partners and 6 associated partners in 5 EU countries. The network will provide training to Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) to encourage innovation in the solution of environmental problems associated with vulnerable water bodies.
According to the rules of the Marie Curie ITN programme ERs shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, (i) be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience, (ii) have less than five years of full-time equivalent research experience (starting from the date of receiving the Master degree), (iii) not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
