A postdoctoral position on Landslide Geomechanics is available at Northwestern University (Illinois, USA). The selected candidate will join the Geomechanical Modeling group at Northwestern University, working under the supervision of Dr. Giuseppe Buscarnera on a project aimed at explaining the dynamics of landslide initiation and rapid post-failure movement. The position involves a one-year appointment, with the possibility of a contract extension for a second year. Competitive salary, exposure to a dynamic international environment, and opportunities for professional development will be key components of the position.
For all inquiries, please contact Dr. Giuseppe Buscarnera (email: email@example.com).
A postdoctoral position is open at Université Gustave Eiffel, France. The project will focus on Centrifuge Modelling of soft soil reinforced by rigid inclusions subjected to seismic loading. The post-doctoral researcher will carry out experimental studies on the soil-rigid inclusion-superstructure interaction taking into account several highlighted factors. The experimental study will also provide essential data for numerical modeling.
Application deadline: Open until Filled
