The University of Twente would like to get your attention for the following post-doc vacancy at the Water Engineering and Management Department.

Sand transport modelling by waves along cross-shore beach profiles

The post-doc research will be aimed at the development of a model for cross-shore sand transport under the influence of shoaling and breaking waves along a beach profile. In the shallow surf zone large quantities of sand are stirred up and transported alternatingly in onshore and offshore direction by the wave-induced turbulent oscillatory flow. The research will be focussed on improving our present understanding of the transport processes near the sea bed (bed-load) as well as higher in the water column (suspended-load) and of the resulting beach erosion/accretion processes.

Further details of this vacancy can be found at:, or you can contact Jan S. Ribberink, telephone +31 53 489 2767 (email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

Application deadline is October 1, 2014. You can send your application, with a CV, academic record (incl. list of publications) and the names and addresses of two references, by using the application link on the vacancy website (mentioned above).

The start of the project should preferably take place between October and December 2014.
