Job profile:

In this position you are expected to write a dissertation in a stimulating environment using the university's infrastructure. You will hold your own lectures, tutor students and participate in administration. 50% of the working time is reserved for the Thesis. Thesis Topic: The water infrastructure is usually organized in pipe networks, supplying water in the city and draining rainfall runoff and wastewater out of it. Alike the city itself, the water networks in cities grew over decades resulting in organic and complex systems. In nature and many engineered systems, networks can be described and optimized based on graph theory. Alike, the growth process of water infrastructure over decades follows certain principles, while there are also spatial and functional interdependencies with other transport networks. This PhD project aims to investigate and describe this interlinked growth process of water infrastructure from a network perspective, and to develop and assess optimal growth scenarios with innovative methods.
