Resilience of water infrastructure at network level (water/wastewater) or catchment area level,
Modelling material flows and energy demand in water systems, linking to energy infrastructure with a view to
Digitalization in the area of centralized/semi-centralized/decentralized water infrastructure (modelling, process
design, detailed planning, integration into BIM systems),
Flexible water infrastructure system design, particularly with regard to dynamic developments in megacities,
Asset management in water supply and wastewater management.
There will be good opportunities for collaboration in the above areas at the School of Civil Engineering,
particularly with the Professor of Digital and Autonomous Construction, a new position that is also being
advertised. The successful candidate will be expected to develop collaboration outside the School of Civil
