As part of a multidisciplinary team working on various French and international projects, you will mainly contribute to the diagnostic and (pre)feasibility studies for coastal and estuarine development projects.
Depending on the projects, you will contribute to the understanding of the physical processes that govern the functioning of coastal and estuarine systems, and to the design of coastal risk management and development solutions.
As a technical contributor, you will apply state-of-the-art methods for data processing and analysis, and numerical modelling tools for the description of coastal and estuarine dynamics.
As a project manager, you will be in charge of the technical, contractual and financial aspects of the projects.

You are familiar with the concepts and tools for coastal risk management and for adaptation to climate change, including the identification and implementation of Nature-based Solutions.
You are familiar with numerical modeling tools (wave propagation, agitation, storm impact, hydrodynamics, morphodynamics event-based, medium-term and long-term, coastline evolution) as well as with the conceptual and structural design of coastal measures (sand nourishments, renaturation, dikes, jetties, groynes, etc.).
Good knowledge of international procurement procedures followed by multi-lateral donors and bi-lateral agencies, and experience with office software required for the production and presentation of project documents.
Excellent oral and written skills in French and English. Travelling in France and abroad is expected.
