siamo lieti di pubblicare il primo bollettino della settima edizione del Convegno Nazionale dei Ricercatori di Ingegneria Geotecnica (CNRIG2019), dal titolo “La Ricerca Geotecnica per la Protezione e lo Sviluppo del Territorio”, che si terrà dal 3 al 5 Luglio 2019 presso la sede di Lecco del Politecnico di Milano.
Il convegno sarà un’occasione di discussione e confronto sul ruolo della ricerca scientifica in campo geotecnico, sulle sue potenziali ricadute negli ambiti della mitigazione dei rischi naturali (protezione dell’esistente e dell’ambiente antropizzato) e della progettazione e protezione di strutture e infrastrutture (sviluppo e costruzione del nuovo) e sul suo contributo all’identificazione di soluzioni sostenibili sia dal punto di vista economico che ambientale.
Il convegno rappresenterà un’opportunità importante per individuare possibili future collaborazioni fra i diversi gruppi di ricerca, aperta sia a docenti e ricercatori sia a professionisti ed esperti di settore in genere, anche al di fuori degli ambiti tradizionali dell’Ingegneria Civile e Ambientale.
Ulteriori informazioni sono disponibili sul sito del convegno: http://cnrig2019.polimi.it

Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment – 22-24 Gennaio 2019, Villars-sur-Ollon (Svizzera)
The second edition of the Winter School, dedicated to Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment, is coming up and the deadline to register via early bird registration is approaching (October 31st).
The Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment will be held on January 22nd-24th 2019, in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland. Geomechanics, Environment and Energy are increasingly related and contemporary themes. The goal of the school is to provide participants with a deep understanding of selected topics in Geomechanics which are fundamental for applications related to Energy and the Environment. This Winter School is organized in the framework of the international journal “Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment”.

Durata: 3 anni
Scadenza della domanda: 25 ottobre 2018
La data di inizio è prevista tra gennaio e febbraio 2019. Si richiede un voto di laurea non inferiore a 104/110 (possibilmente 110/110). Per ulteriori informazioni, contattare il Prof. Alessandro Tarantino (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Department of Civil Engineering at the Lassonde School of Engineering invites applications from qualified individuals for a tenure-track professorial-stream position at the Assistant Professor level in Geotechnical Engineering to commence on July 1, 2019. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval.
We are looking to appoint a highly motivated candidate who will contribute to the Department’s goal of establishing a state-of-the-art advanced experimental geotechnics facility, focused on laboratory and field testing of saturated, unsaturated and frozen soils, and other geomaterials, such as waste and mine tailings. Other focus areas of this position can include: geotechnical field instrumentation and monitoring for geohazards; environmental geotechnics; energy geotechnics; experimental geochemistry; transportation geotechnics; and mining geotechnics. The successful candidate is expected to play a key role in the teaching of undergraduate and graduate geotechnical engineering courses.
Posting End Date: November 30, 2018

Granular materials, such as soils, agricultural seeds, metallic and ceramic powders, and pharmaceutical powders, are common in nature and have many industrial applications. They possess unique physical properties and a complicated flow behaviour. MATHEGRAM aims to improve our understanding of the thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials.
MATHEGRAM is now recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will work at a beneficiary institute with a 36-month employment contract and will register as a PhD at a European University within the MATHEGRAM network or affiliated universities. Each ESR will also receive additional training at the network level and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic MATHEGRAM partners.

An opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate to work on experimental geotechnical laboratory and field studies carried out in conjunction with the ALPACA Joint Industry Project. The latter is a major research project that is being advanced in association with University of Oxford, funded by EPSRC and Industry. Professor R J Jardine is the Principal Investigator, with Dr Stavroula Kontoe as Co-Investigator. The project is directed towards the cost-effective design of foundations for offshore wind-turbines, especially those for chalk dominated sites. This is a fixed term appointment that will commence from December 2018 or later and extend up to end of February 2020.
Closing date: 28 October 2018
