Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate at the University of Strathclyde


The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in partnership with a civil engineering contractor is seeking to appoint a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate (22-24 months) in the area Ground Engineering with a focus on developing deep technical understanding of the principles and processes controlling the use of  inorganic latent hydraulic binder as a binding agent for improving the mechanical performance of soil for Smart Surfaces.

For further info, please, click here or contact Dr. Matteo Pedrotti or Prof. Alessandro Tarantino.


PhD positions at Charles University (Czech Republic)

The Soil Mechanics group at Charles University, Prague (Czech Republic), is seeking motivated PhD students with experience in modelling and/or experiments to work on the following projects:
1) Calibration of advanced constitutive models
2) Evaluation of soil behaviour including creep and numerical modelling of slow-moving landslides in Central Bohemian Uplands
3) Thermal effects on the residual shear strength and creep behaviour of clays
Details on the projects and applications can be found here. Application deadline: 13 March 2022.

EGU 22 – Session ERE 2.5 – Shallow geothermal systems for heating and cooling: geoscience and engineering approaches

The session ERE 2.5 at the EGU General Assembly 2022 welcomes contributions about shallow geothermal energy applications, including traditional closed- and open-loop borehole heat exchangers as well as so-called energy geostructures (e.g. thermo-active foundations, walls, tunnels).
Due to the continuing difficulties that many people in the EGU community, all around the world, are experiencing, the abstract submission deadline  is being extended to  friday, 14 january 2022. More info on this flyer.

Gustave Eiffel University, Nantes, France PhD position on energy geo-structures

Gustave Eiffel University is looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate to work on the numerical and physical modelling of energy geo-structures.

The physical modelling aspect consists in developing a new small-scale model of energy pile tested in centrifuge.
The PhD subject is described at this link.
Here is the link to apply. The application deadline is 21st March 2022.

Delft University of Technology is seeking candidates for a new Assistant or Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics with a focus on new physical modelling strategies to better assess and design geotechnical structures and infrastructure subjected to increasing anthropogenic and environmental loadings, and to study the impact of soil-fluid-structure interaction processes. More info on this flyer.





One postdoctoral position at PolyU Hong Kong offers the possibility of working on multiscale multiphysics modelling of fluid-structure-soil interaction in offshore geotechnics. More info on this site.

The Mechanics and Energy Lab of Northwestern University is seeking two post doctoral researchers to develop a research program at the intersection of electrochemistry and mechanics of materials devoted to unravel the promise of using mild electric stimulations to engineer soils and concrete through electrodeposited mineral crystals. More info on this flyer.



Per l’A.A. 2021-22, presso l’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, è attivo il Master di II livello in Geotecnica per le infrastrutture. Il Master, coordinato dal prof. Giampiero Russo, mira a formare ingegneri specializzati nel settore dell’ingegneria geotecnica per le infrastrutture, capaci di affrontare le fasi di indagine, progettazione, costruzione e manutenzione delle opere geotecniche ricomprese nelle grandi infrastrutture, con particolare riferimento a soluzioni capaci di elevarne la sicurezza e la resilienza rispetto ai rischi  idrogeologico e sismico.

Maggiori informazioni e modulistica su questo flyer e in questo sito.

Scadenza per la domanda di partecipazione 11.01.2022.
