  • Ad Jeuken Senior Advisor Climate Adaptation

    What counts for me is the social relevance of the work

    I studied Environmental Hygiene in Wageningen, specialising in meteorology and air quality. I went on to my doctorate, looking at the impact of substances and air pollution on climate change. During my career, I switched from a research job at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute to working as a project manager for Rijkswaterstaat. Now, at Deltares, I can choose from several career options: management, more concentration on the actual subject matter, or a combination of the two.

    The Substance is what matters here, not the game

    The content of the work is interesting. I am involved with limiting liability, with intellectual property and with rates. But the most important reason to work for Deltares is the collaboration with colleagues. The substance is what matters here, not the game. People judge you on the basis of your work.
