Profil : Hydrologie urbaine, Hydraulique, Aide à la décision, Etudes Urbaines
The associate professor to be recruited will contribute to teaching activities within the Civil Engineering and Urban Planning Department at INSA Lyon. He/she will have to give lectures, tutorials and/or practical works related to the three following domains: i) “Water” (urban hydrology, hydraulics), ii) “Tools for engineers” (optimization, multicriteria decision support systems, environmental assessment, asset management methods, methods for the ecological transition) and iii) “Urban studies” in the context of workshops. These last two teaching domains will require a good knowledge of the field of civil engineering and/or urban studies. He/she will have to participate in the supervision of various projects (especially PIRD: Research & Development Initiation Projects) and internships. A sufficient level will be required in both French and English to ensure proper teaching in these two languages. Lastly, an administrative investment will be required to participate in the life and responsibilities related to the activities of the Department.

The Civil Engineering and Urban Planning (GCU) department graduates over than 100 engineers per year. It is composed by 31 full professors and associate professors, technical and administrative staff and individual contactors. The teaching domains include a large range of areas : buildings construction, infrastructures (roads, bridges, tunnels, networks), urban studies (development and rehabilitation). The cursus is organised in 6 semesters: three of them are dedicated to basic knowledge and competencies
based on projects, one semester is devoted to optional modules and, in the last year, one semester of specialization and one for a professional internship. The specialization semester includes a PIRD - Research & Development Initiation Project and a professional project in one of three options: “Building – environment – comfort”, “Urban development and sustainable renewal”, “Infrastructures and structures”. Specific programs allow offering well-recognized trainings: the Research option, the special curriculum which gives access to a double diploma in both Engineering and Architecture, and Double Diplomas with foreign partner universities.
The DEEP laboratory conducts its research in relation to the societal challenges at INSA Lyon "Energy for sustainable development" and "Environment: natural, industrial and urban environments". In this context, the recruited assoc. prof. will develop skills and research projects on the management of urban hydrosystems, including conventional sewer systems and sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDs) for stormwater management. In collaboration with other researchers in the laboratory, the approaches will be diversified and will include in particular modeling, experiments and/or asset management, the evaluation of environmental performances of hydrosystems, the evolution of centralized systems towards more sustainable decentralized systems. The recruited person will participate in the scientific management of the laboratory and will contribute to its national and international recognition by means of collaborations. The recruited person will have to demonstrate skills in civil and/or urban engineering, hydrology, dynamics of complex systems, urban hydrosystems (sewer systems, SUDs), modeling, data analysis. He/she will like to enhance his/her research outputs in both operational and academic terms. He/she will be part of regional research networks (SFR OTHU – Field Observatory on Urban Hydrology, Graduate School EUR H2O’Lyon).

DEEP undertakes research in a range of engineering sciences, dealing with concrete environmental issues across urban and industrial environments. Mobilizing multidisciplinary skills within DEEP leads to knowledge, methods and tools for efficient action to protect the environment, aiming for example to protect or restore ecological health for a given environment (preventive and/or curative actions) or to develop ecotechnological processes. The approach is based on a dynamic balance between the overall study of integrated systems and understanding their basic processes, as well as their linkages at different time and space scales. DEEP works principally in two fields of application: 1) water and urban hydrosystems, 2) solid wastes, contaminated sediments and soils. Three complementary lines of research are developed for these two areas of application, by combining experiments and observation on the one hand, and modelling on the other hand: 1) knowledge of emissions and transfers of pollutants, 2) physical, chemical and biological processes for treatment and reuse/recovery, and 3) methods for environmental and performance assessment.
