Geomechanical modeling of inelastic deformation and failure in the subsurface – PhD and Postdoc positions at Northwestern University

The geomechanics modeling group led by Prof. Giuseppe Buscarnera at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Northwestern University, is about to open two PhD positions and one Postdoctoral Scholar positions. The two projects focus on activities pertaining to landslide hazard analysis and deep carbon mineralization finalized to CO2 storage, respectively. Further information can be provided upon request by contacting directly Prof. Buscarnera (g-buscarnera@northwestern.edu) and is available at the links below:
  • Assessment of slope stability conditions via satellite remote sensing (link)
  • Chemo-mechanics of damaged rocks undergoing carbon mineralization (link)


Giovedì 17 novembre (ore 17:00) si svolgerà il prossimo evento organizzato nell’ambito del progetto ReStructure 2.0 (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions – Reintegration Panel). Lo speaker sarà la Professoressa  Katerina Ziotopoulou (University of California at Davis), con la presentazione dal titolo “TOWARDS NONLINEAR DYNAMIC ANALYSES OF BIO-CEMENTED GEOSYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS IN LIQUEFACTION MITIGATION“. L’evento sarà in modalità webinar (qui il modulo di iscrizione).

Postdoctoral position in ‘Theoretical and computational geomechanics with application to mineral carbon storage’ – University of Minnesota

A postdoctoral position in theoretical and computational geomechanics in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geo- Engineering, University of Minnesota is available immediately. The postdoctoral fellow will be assisting with the development of models of propagating cracks driven by reactive fluids, considering dissolution and precipitation mechanisms, and will be conducting numerical simulations to assess the evolution of the transport properties of a fractured porous rock caused by injection of a reactive fluid. The initial appointment is for one year and is renewable for up to four years. Applicants should submit a statement of interest, career goals, 2-page CV, and the names and contact information of three references. Inquiries and applications should be sent by email to Emmanuel Detournay (detou001@umn.edu) and Joseph Labuz (jlabuz@umn.edu).

Post-doctoral position on Anchors Sharing in centrifuge at the Gustave Eiffel University, Nantes, France


France Energies Marines institute (and the Gustave Eiffel University) are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate for 18 months in “geotechnical engineering: physical and numerical modelling”. The physical modelling aspect consists in performing an experimental campaign in centrifuge on the anchors multidirectional loading. The second part is about the numerical modelling of the centrifuge tests. The application deadline is 31st October 2022. Applicants must be available to start around the very beginning of 2023. More details about the offer and the application procedure here.
