The position will be affiliated with the Department of Hydraulic Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of Shandong University.
Shandong University, under the direct jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education, is a leading university in China with a membership of Project 985. It ranks 151-200 in the world according to ARWU world university ranking 2020.
Successful candidates will be offered a competitive salary and a starting research fund. On-campus accommodation (3-4 bedrooms) will also be provided at a preferential price.
Please submit a C.V. including two academic reference letters to Prof. Ji-Peng Wang: firstname.lastname@example.org . After a review of the background of the candidates by the research committee, formal applications to the university will be invited. The position is open until it is filled.
vEGU 2021 – call for abstracts – session NH8.4 on vegetation effects on slope stability and climate-induced geohazards
The NH8.4 session of the EGU General Assembly 2021 (vEGU, April 2021) is entitled ” Vegetation as nature-based solution for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences along slopes and streambanks” and is coordinated by Vittoria Capobianco (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute – NGI), Sabatino Cuomo (University of Salerno), Dominika Krzeminska (Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research – NIBIO) and Anders Solheim (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute – NGI).
Contributions documenting, both through numerical or experimental studies, how vegetation can be beneficial in slope stability and plant-soil-atmosphere interaction in the unsaturated zone are welcome.
Specific topics and research questions related to this session are:
• How the plant-soil-atmosphere interaction affects the unsaturated zone and thus the slope stability?
• Measuring and quantifying the effects of vegetation as NBS for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences at or near instable slopes and along stream banks – case studies at full scale or laboratory scale
• How to ensure interdisciplinary interaction for sustainability and mutual synergies for studies containing vegetation as NBS for mitigating climate induced geo-hazards and associated consequences at or near instable slopes and along stream banks.
Further information about the session can be found here: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/38969
Interested participants are welcome to submit an abstract within 20 January 2021, which will be followed by an online presentation to be given during the virtual session.

Associate professor / Professor position in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Liège (Belgium)
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

Assistant or Associate Professor – Civil and Environmental Engineering (Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada)
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) invites applications from qualified candidates for a preliminary tenure‐track appointment in Engineering and Northern Development at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor beginning July 1, 2021.
The candidate will be expected to have technical capacities to engage in research supporting the convergent problems of resource industry sustainability, northern development, and resilient infrastructure for northern communities in a changing climate. In‐line with the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, training of indigenous students and professionals, and respectfully interacting with northern communities to increase Northern Canada’s technical knowledge base will be an important component of this position.
The research focus should complement existing strengths in the department. Research areas may include but are not limited to: buildings, transportation corridors, and other infrastructure in zones of climate‐ driven permafrost thaw; mine site reclamation; soft soil engineering; and water‐permafrost‐infrastructure interactions. Expertise in monitoring soils and infrastructure in the field would be desirable. Experience and/or a strong interest in working in Northern Canada and with Indigenous communities would be an asset.
We encourage applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in Engineering and/or with experience in mentoring students from such groups.
