Vacancy: Sr. Lecturer / Researcher or Associate Professor of Water Governance

The UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education offers graduate education in Delft, The Netherlands, and carries out research and capacity building projects all over the world. The mission of UNESCO-IHE is to contribute to the education and training of professionals and to build the capacity of sector organizations, knowledge centres and other institutions active in the fields of water, the environment and infrastructure in developing countries and countries in transition. Each year 750 participants (incl. about 200 new MSc students per year) from all over the world attend the various regular and short courses at UNESCO-IHE. The institute has an international staff & student community with English as working language.

The Department of Integrated Water Systems and Governance provides interdisciplinary post-graduate education and training in the area of water management. In addition the Department carries out both applied research and supports the development of education and research capacity in universities and other knowledge centres in the global South. Within this Department the Water Governance Chair Group (WG) focuses specifically on the political, policy, and legal dimensions of water governance. The Water Governance Group has the following vacancy:

Senior Lecturer/ Researcher or Associate Professor in Water Governance (f/m) – 1.0 fte

Globally, the importance of sanitation and hygiene is gaining more recognition and funding in the water sector, while a more integrated management of the wastewater component of urban water cycles is widely promoted as a strategy to increase urban water security and ecological resilience.

Critical scholars increasingly recognize the importance of sanitation and wastewater in co-shaping wider processes of social differentiation and uneven development. Critical analyses of wastewater form part of wider attempts to unravel the social relations of power shaping the quality and quantity of waters flows, and of understanding who is positively or negatively affected as a result. For sanitation and hygiene development programs, questions are being raised about who defines what improved sanitation is (and how this matters for urban life); about how interventions are structured and financed (i.e. the neoliberalization of sanitation programming); as well as about what the implications are for different residents.

Understanding the politics of sanitation and wastewater flows as part of the hydro-social cycle is a new area of focus within the Water Governance group. This focus will complement and be integrated within an already existing research and education portfolio that has the intersection between ecological, technological, and social systems as its anchor.

The new staff member will help develop this new research line on the politics of urban sanitation and wastewater flows. (S)he will also be expected to translate research outputs, or new analytical insights, into educational and training activities. This work will be done in cooperation with colleagues at UNESCO-IHE and partner institutes.

 

 

 

Responsibilities

  • Contribute towards the development and implementation of a thematic research line in the field of wastewater governance and the politics of urban sanitation, including literature review, marketing and networking with partner organizations;
  • Identify funding opportunities and acquiring projects for this research theme and developing project proposals;
  • (Co-)supervise MSc and possibly PhD research, in particular but not limited to the topics of urban sanitation and wastewater;
  • Design courses and deliver lectures in the Water Management MSc programme and other MSc programmes related to urban water governance, specifically addressing wastewater flows and sanitation;
  • Assist in the development of innovative post-graduate education and professional training programmes;
  • Contribute to the acquisition of international capacity development, advisory and other projects, ideally but not exclusively related to urban sanitation and wastewater.

Requirements

The candidate:

  • has a PhD degree related to water governance/management, urban planning, geography and/or environmental governance;
  • has a demonstrable interest in interdisciplinary research related to water (including sanitation/wastewater);
  • has demonstrated research interests in the politics of urban and/or rural environments, as reflected in publications or research track record;
  • is a good time manager, pro-active in setting own assignments and seeking feedback, and output oriented;
  • is a team player who works well in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment, respectful of disciplinary differences while provoking creative interference;
  • is fluent in English, and preferably also in Spanish and/or French;
  • has working experience in, Southern countries and/or countries in transition;

 

Terms of employment

This position is, in principle, a permanent one. Following two consecutive temporary contracts, candidates will be considered for a permanent contract after 2 years. The position is based in Delft, The Netherlands. A competitive salary (grade 11/12 for Sr. Lecturer/Researcher) or (grade 13/14 for Associate Professor) is offered depending on qualifications and experience in accordance with the conditions of employment for Dutch Universities. The appointment implies entry into the Netherlands’ Civil Service Pension Fund (ABP). Candidates are to be prepared to carry out long- and short-term missions abroad.

Additional information can be obtained from Professor Margreet Zwarteveen, Chair Professor of Water Governance group via email m.zwarteveen@unesco-ihe.org or phone +31 15 2152308.
