In addition the Department carries out research and supports the development of education and research capacity in universities and other knowledge centres in the developing world. Within this Department the Water Services Management Group (WSM) focuses on management and governance of water supply and sanitation provisioning, particularly in developing countries. The WSM Group has the following vacancy:

Lecturer/Researcher in Environmental Governance and Water Services (m/f) – 1.0 FTE

Rapid urbanization, environmental pollution and climate change greatly influence the ability of water providers to deliver sustainable water services to consumers. Developing more resilient and sustainable water supply and sanitation provisioning strategies requires water providers to anticipate and take account of (changing) ecological conditions. Understanding the complex interactions between dynamic natural (ecological), technological/infrastructural and governance systems in relation to water services provisioning forms the starting point for a new focus area within the WSM Group.

The new staff member will be engaged in developing innovative research on environmental governance and water services in cooperation with colleagues at UNESCO-IHE and partner institutes and translating research outputs in educational and training activities.
