Scholarships – MSc programme “Civil Engineering for the Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards” – University of Pavia and IUSS Pavia

Four scholarships of 3.220 Euro/year each have been made available by the University School for Advanced studies IUSS Pavia to students who will enroll in the MSc programme “Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards” in the academic year 2021-2022. The MSc programme is jointly offered by the University of Pavia and IUSS Pavia, and the call for applications is published at the site  http://civrisk.unipv.it/scholarships/ .

The deadline for application to the scholarships is the 26th of June 2021.

The MSc programme “Civil Engineering for Mitigation of Risk from Natural Hazards”, entirely taught in English, aims at providing higher-level education to meet the ever-growing demand for expertise in the field of civil engineering applied to the reduction of seismic and hydrogeological risk. The programme has two curricula: Reduction of Seismic Risk (ROSE, which is the evolution of the well-known ROSE School Master Programme) and Hydrogeological Risk Assessment and Mitigation (HYRIS, which is a recent addition to the MSc).

The MSc offers high quality training by combining the expertise of the local academic staff with that of qualified international experts invited to teach selected courses.


Post-doctoral researcher opportunity at the University of Nottingham (UK)

The Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics (NCG) is currently undertaking two large multi-disciplinary projects related to investigating the behaviour of coal-mining spoil materials with a focus on the geotechnical, sustainability, environmental, socio-economic and long-term management challenges. NCG seeks a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work on this challenging project.

Candidates should be inquisitive, with a strong interest in applied research, and the personality and drive to interact effectively with industry and project partners. They will have a first degree in Civil Engineering or cognate subject and will have been awarded a PhD (or have submitted their thesis for examination), ideally in an area of Geotechnical Engineering. The successful candidate will have good presentation and report writing skills. A good publication record will be an advantage but its absence should not hinder applications from those who have recently submitted their theses.

For application details see: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/jobs/currentvacancies/ref/ENG196421
