LEAD HYDROLOGIST

The unit Inland Water Systems has over 175 employees, divided into the following six departments: Operational Water Management and Early Warning, Catchment and Urban Hydrology, Flood Risk Management, River Dynamics and Inland Shipping, Fresh Water Ecology and Water Quality and Water and Delta Management.

The Department of Catchment and Urban Hydrology is involved in a wide range of projects. In the Netherlands we work for Rijkswaterstaat and the Water Boards. Internationally, we are active in projects for the World Bank Group and the Asian Development Bank, e.g. in South East Asia, South-America and Africa. Furthermore, we participate in H2020 projects for the European Union.

We develop new approaches and tools for hydrology at different levels: from the global and river basin scale to the level of districts and roads.

In the interaction with the other units / departments of Deltares we create our added value in projects focussing on integrated water management, forecasting and multi-hazard impact assessment.

The Department currently consists of 25 hydrologists, one third with a PhD. A research and development and a customer-oriented attitude are important to us. The Department is located in Delft, the Netherlands.
