Water, Climate and Future Deltas is the research programme of one of the hubs in the Utrecht University Strategic theme ‘Pathways to Sustainability’ . In the hub, researchers from varying disciplines at Utrecht University cooperate with external partners to design and evaluate pathways to sustainable delta development. We will provide policy makers and delta managers with the essential scientific basis for informed decision-making on pathways towards sustainable deltas. Finding pathways to sustainable delta development requires understanding both the external drivers of change and the functioning and interaction of natural and social systems that can be managed in a delta. Therefore, the research programme comprises three lines that together are required for sustainable development:
We work closely together with stakeholders in a co-creative process across a range of delta environments with long-term challenges, both in the Netherlands and internationally.
We are currently offering a post-doc position in research line C:
Post-doc Design and Evaluation of Pathways of Future Development of Deltas (0.8 FTE)
In the Faculty of Geosciences (Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development and the Department of Physical Geography).
This postdoc works in research line C in which we focus on design and evaluation of adaptation pathways, and finding pathways to sustainability in deltas. This theme will integrate information, knowledge and instruments developed in line A and B, and will explore how we can use these to find sustainable pathways. To gain insight and experience in how these integrative exercises in the hub Water, Climate and Future Deltas could be done and to keep it feasible at the same time we will limit ourselves to three (existing) delta cases. One of these is in The Netherlands; a second and a third case is to be found in a delta abroad. These cases allow addressing a specific challenge, real-world data, models, and including delta/water managers and local stakeholders.
The postdoc will investigate pathways of change and develop and test management strategies for deltas using scenarios, knowledge and models from the first two lines. The following activities are foreseen:
