The School of Engineering is seeking candidates to a full-time academic position (Associate Professor/Professor) in the field of Geotechnical Engineering.
The new academic will be affiliated with the Department of Architectural, Geological, Environmental and Civil Engineering of the School of Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Liège (Belgium).
The appointee will contribute to the research activities in the field of geotechnical engineering. The rapid development of renewable energy production and the increasing use of the underground generate a growing need in geotechnical engineering to design new solutions and to study complex processes, with underground-infrastructure interactions, multi-physics processes, human impacts and integration in BIM models. Geotechnical engineering is therefore facing new challenges related to the resilience and the sustainability of geostructures. Research program for developing new experimental techniques and strategies, or cutting-edge numerical tools applied to civil/geological engineering problems are welcome.
Applications from candidates with a strong research background in civil engineering, or a cognate subject, are expected. The Department aims for a professor with the capacities and desire to develop a fundamental research programme of international standing.
Application deadline: 15 February 2021
