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.

Associate Professor/Professor Engineering for Extremes (Civil Engineering), Monash University, Australia
If you're after a rewarding career, Monash University can help make it happen.  With leading academics and world-class resources, combined with a ranking in the top 100 universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future. 
The Department of Civil Engineering is seeking to appoint suitably qualified academic staff to Level D (Associate Professor)/ Level E (Professor) in fields related to Engineering for Extremes, including BIM and visualisation, modelling of risk, statistics of extremes, system modelling, reliability modelling and/or structural design, and evaluation and protection of infrastructure against extreme events. Applicants with specialisation in flood, bushfire and/or wind protection are particularly invited to apply.
The Department has recently launched three main research themes including 7 areas of research focus, in which Engineering for Extremes is the core. Engineering for extremes aims to make our infrastructure more resilient to the pressures of extreme events for the benefit of society. Through this focus we are developing models to predict the outcomes of extremes such that solutions can be developed to both warn society in advance, and/or protect society through the engineering of more appropriate infrastructure. More information about this research focus can be found at http://www.eng.monash.edu.au/civil/research.  One expectation of this position is to provide leadership to this research area, including the development of a faculty/University wide centre.
