DuneForceDear NCK Colleagues,

We are starting a new project that aims to develop DUNEs FOR Coastal safEty and habitat development (DuneForce!). The DuneForce project will be initiated this year at Delft University of Technology in collaboration with Wageningen University and Research in the Netherlands. The project will run for 4 years.

I would like to point out some exciting career opportunities for Post-doc and PhD’s. See for more information.
