Doctoral Position in Sustainable Climate Adaptation, IHE

Expires on: 05/02/2024

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education seeks a PhD research candidate to conduct research related to the financing and sustainability of climate change adaptation in the water sector, as part of a recently awarded research project FISCAL (Financial Fairness, Inclusion and Sustainability in Climate Change Adaptation). FISCAL is a collaborative project between IHE Delft and University of Dar es Salaam, and financed by the Water and Development Partnership Programme. The primary objective of the project is to evaluate past climate change adaptations implemented in low-/middle-income countries through the lens of inclusion and sustainability considering financial, environmental (in particular food and water resources) and social aspects. The output of the research is intended to provide policy recommendations and equitable financial investment guidelines for developing sustainable and inclusive climate change adaptation plans. Case studies for this research are envisioned from Tanzania, but not limited to.

The PhD candidate will be hosted by the Water Resources and Ecosystems Department of IHE Delft, and also registered at the Technical University of Delft (TUD). The candidate will closely work with a supervising team including Professor Graham Jewitt, Dr. Shreedhar Maskey, Dr. Nora Van Cauwenbergh, Dr. Yong Jiang at IHE Delft and Dr. Subira Eva Munishi at University of Dar es Salaam.
