6.1. School of Water Resources and Hydropower of Wuhan University
The School of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering (SWRHE) of Wuhan University is dedicated to both higher education and advanced scientific research mainly in the field of water resources and hydropower engineering. Supported by both "211 Project" and "985 Project", the discipline of water resources engineering of Wuhan University was among the first batch of national key disciplines of China. The school has been ranked top three in water resources disciplines in China among three consecutive academic evaluations organized by the Academic Degree Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education of China since 2007. Currently, it has been selected to be sponsored by the "Double First-Class Construction Plan for Universities" of Chinese government and is aimed to become one of the leading academic centers of water resources and hydropower engineering in the world through performance enhancement.
The school consists of four departments, i.e. Department of Agricultural Water Resources Engineering, Department of Hydropower Engineering, Department of Harbor, Waterway and Coastal Engineering, and Department of Hydrology and Water Resources. Besides these four departments, the school has also established three research-oriented institutes, i.e. the Institute of Smart Water, the Institute of Hydro-Ecology, and the Institute of Engineering Risk and Disaster Prevention. The school owns one national scientific research platform, i.e. the State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science, one national experimental teaching center, i.e. the State Experimental Teaching Center of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering?and two school-affiliated provincial platforms, including Ministry of Education Key Laboratory of Rock Mechanics in Hydraulic Structural Engineering, and Hubei Provincial Collaborative Innovation Center of Water Resources Security.
The school currently employs 229 faculty and staff, including 81 professors and 63 associate professors. Among them, there is 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 3 chief scientists of the "973" projects, 3 "Chang Jiang Program" Scholars of the Ministry of Education, 5 winners of the National Outstanding Young Scientists Fund, 6 winners of the National Excellent Young Scientists Fund, and 6 scholars of "Thousand Talent Program for Young Scientists".
In order to develop new discipline directions to meet the demands of social and technological developments and to enhance the international competitive competences of the Wuhan University's water resources discipline in both higher education and scientific research, recruitment is now open to call for outstanding scholars of related research directions at home and abroad, of any nationalities, to join the School of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering of Wuhan University.
6.2. The State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science
The State Key Laboratory of Water Resources and Hydropower Engineering Science was approved by Ministry of Science and Technology of China in the year of 2003 to be established in Wuhan University. The laboratory is under the direct administration of Wuhan University and operates independently, with an aim to create an innovation platform for scientific research and engineering application in the fields of water resources and hydropower engineering. Currently, the laboratory occupies a total area of 12,200 m2 and owns the fixed assets worth 80 million RMB. With a large number of instruments and experimental systems equipped and developed for various kinds of complex and comprehensive scientific researches, the laboratory has now become the one of leading laboratories of the same kind in China and abroad.
The laboratory consists of five research sections, i.e. hydrology and water resources, agricultural irrigation, river engineering, hydraulic structure, and hydropower station operation and management. The section directors are responsible for managing the research groups or programs. The research positions are divided into the tenure type and the contract type, which are all open for application.
The laboratory staff currently consists of 119 persons, including 78 fixed researchers, 32 un-fixed researchers and 9 technicians. Prof. Zhi MAO is a member of Chinese Academy of Engineering. Prof. Jun XIA is a member of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Prof. Shenglian Guo is a member of Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences.
The laboratory has made outstanding achievements in the following research fields: nonlinear flood forecasting; sustainable management of water resources; water-saving irrigation; management and control of effluent irrigation; inter-basin water transfer; river sedimentation; hydropower resources exploitation; optimal design of hydropower station; optimal construction of hydropower project; transient process of hydropower stations, and so on.
