Annonce 20-37 : Deux postes de professeur vacants au sein du département des sciences de la terre et de l'environnement, division de la géographie et du tourisme de l'université catholique de Leuven en Belgique (anglais parfait obligatoire)

1 ) A research professor in ‘Earth Surface Processes in the anthropocene’.  The Geography research group at KU Leuven has a long tradition in studying geomorphic processes at various spatial and temporal scales and this through the application of field and experimental work, and numerical modelling, often in an interdisciplinary context. Much attention has been paid to the interaction of physical processes with human activities. We seek to strengthen this expertise by attracting an internationally-oriented candidate with a strong track record in earth surface processes. The focus is on physical landscape processes making use of, and developing cutting-edge tools, combining numerical models with fieldwork and/or laboratory work. Application deadline is September 18th 2020. More info on this position and on the application procedure can be found here:

2 ) A strategic research professorship in Eco-hydro-morphodynamics, jointly at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Department of Civil Engineering, Division of Hydraulics. Whilst the Geography research group has gained much expertise in geomorphic processes and human-environment interactions over the last few decades, staff members of the Hydraulics division have a strong reputation in coastal, estuarine and fluvial hydraulics. With this joint position, we seek to strengthen the research at KU Leuven at the interface of ecology, hydraulics and geomorphology, not only to better understand how living materials interact with sediment and water, but also to better plan for a sustainable management of these ecosystems in the light of climate change. Application deadline is November 2nd 2020. More info on this position and on the application procedure can be found here:
