Post-doc position on mechanical and hydrological processes in soil at Westlake University

Introduction of The Lab/ Research Field:  Dr. Lei’s research on porous media features temperature, pressure and stress control, pore-scale insights based on micro-CT technique integrated with conventional testing, multi-physics experiments and theoretical analysis. Targeted areas include: (1) particulate material and porous media under abnormal conditions and their interaction with pore constituents; (2) energy, marine, and resource geo-engineering; (3) permafrost and outer space sediments; (4) natural gas hydrates and their hosting sediments; (5) massive energy storage; and (6) multi-phase flow and crystallization in porous media.

Job Description: Position: Postdoctoral fellow; Requirements: 1) To work on mechanical and hydrological properties of soil under various conditions, experimentalist preferred; 2) Have obtained or expect to obtain shortly the PhD degree in water resources, geotechnical engineering, earth science, geophysics, or related disciplines; 3) Age under 35; 4) Geo-mechanical and/or hydrological experiences preferred; 5) Good track academic record.

Compensation and Benefits: The research team offers a competitive compensation package commensurate with the selected candidate’s qualifications and experience. Applications for relevant projects and programs will be encouraged and supported.

How to Apply: To apply, please send resume, representative papers and any other relevant materials as PDF files to leiliang@westlake.edu.cn, and indicate the Post-doc application in the subject.

Corso CISM – Analisi e gestione delle acque interstiziali nei pendii in materiale sciolto – 24-25 giugno 2021

La sezione Advanced Professional Training (APT) del CISM di Udine organizza un corso di formazione professionale avanzata dal titolo “Analisi e gestione delle acque interstiziali nei pendii in materiale sciolto“, che si terrà nei giorni 24 e 25 giugno 2021. Il webinar si articolerà in 4 lezioni che offrono alcuni spunti teorici sul comportamento idraulico dei pendii in relazione alle condizioni di stabilità degli stessi, sulle nuove tecniche di monitoraggio delle pressioni interstiziali e sulla loro modellazione mediante l’approccio degli elementi finiti. Saranno inoltre presentate le principali tecniche di drenaggio utilizzate per la mitigazione dei movimenti franosi, evidenziando con degli esempi quali sono alcuni errori frequenti nella realizzazione di questi interventi.
Il  corso sarà coordinato dalla Prof.ssa Simonetta Cola dell’Università degli Studi di Padova, in collaborazione con la commissione Geotecnica e Idraulica dell’Ordine degli Ingegneri di Udine.
Per gli ingegneri iscritti all’albo è prevista l’assegnazione di 8 CFP.
