Deadline for applications(257 days ago)
Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)Hamburg
With the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg‘s ambition to further develop the location into a knowledge metropolis, the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is expanding its expertise in research and teaching. With its growth concept the TUHH aims to enhance its position as a leading interdisciplinary, innovative, and international university of technology in Germany. It aspires to consolidate and extend the characteristic that has constantly been its hallmark since its foundation: that of being a model university, an initiator and an innovation driver.
The TUHH is a modern, dynamic, internationally aligned university with high performance and quality standards. The main focus of research, teaching and technology transfer is to develop technology for people.
High-ranking research, especially in the three competence areas of Green Technologies, Life Science Technologies and Aviation and Maritime Systems, characterize the TUHH.
Along with engineering competences the TUHH links interdisciplinary research with digitization and development of new materials.
In teaching we are planning to develop new, internationally focused courses of study for engineering scientists of tomorrow. In the use of modern teaching and learning methods the TUHH continues to aspire to a leading position in high-quality teaching. Last not least, targeted promotion of technology transfer and company startups is another distinctive feature of the TUHH.
Implementation of the TUHH's growth concept is combined with a strategy that includes closer networking with scientific institutions in the Hamburg metropolitan region, the development of new, cross-disciplinary research associations, maximum excellence in basic research and strong ties with industrial partners in application-oriented research.

(Reference No.: P-18-07)
The successful applicant is expected to represent the subject of geo-hydroinformatics with a focus on ground water hydrology comprehensively in teaching and research at the School of Civil Engineering. He or she will have a keen interest in numeric ground water modeling as demonstrated by national and international research cooperation and by relevant publications in national and international journals. Many years of experience in the theory and practice of ground water current and material transport modeling are a prerequisite.
Further desiderata include knowledge in at least one of the following areas:
Dynamics of ground water and adaptive ground water management in climate change
Reactive chemicals in ground water
Nanoparticles in ground water
Interaction between construction material chemicals and ground water
Ground water damage caused by industry and agriculture
In respect of the first point readiness to cooperate with the KlimaCampus Hamburg and to collaborate in the CLICCS Excellence Initiative is a prerequisite, these being projects in which the TUHH is involved in cooperation with, inter alia, the University of Hamburg.
The successful applicant will also give lectures in English, mainly for bachelor's and master's students, at the School of Civil Engineering.
