Assistant/Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics (tenure track) at Delft University of Technology

Applications are invited for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics at Delft University of Technology (Holland). The position is proposed to improve their understanding of the fundamental mechanical behaviour of soils undergoing ageing and cyclic environmental loads, and to provide new solutions to the present and future challenges of the built environment. The focus is on developing new experimental techniques and strategies to better understand and tune the response of soils to increasingly high (time-dependent and dynamic) loadings. Emerging sensor and imaging technologies offer the opportunity to develop a new generation of experimental techniques for soil testing in the laboratory and in the field.

The closing date for applications is 15 March 2020.

Postdoc position in geomechanics at ENTPE-LTDS (Lyon, France)

Multi-scale behaviour and damage of heterogeneous rocks around underground excavations.

The goal of this project is to investigate the multi-scale behaviour of clay rock, going from microscopic to macroscopic scale. The research will be based on multi-scale approach and numerical method allowing to model microstructure media in a double-scale framework (FEMxFEM). Applications are welcome from PhDs graduated in the areas of civil, mechanical, and materials engineering, or geosciences. PhDs in geomechanics / geotechnics are mostly welcome.

Applications should be submitted before the end of April 2020. Contact: Benoît Pardoen (benoit.pardoen@entpe.fr). —>  Link to description

Post-doc position at the Mechanics and Energy Laboratory of Northwestern University

The Mechanics and Energy Laboratory (MEL) of Northwestern University (Illinois, USA) is welcoming applications for a post-doctoral research position.

The MEL develops research activities addressing fundamental and applied problems centered on the mechanics of geomaterials and structural systems. The ultimate goal of these activities is to develop competence serving the achievement of efficient energy harvesting and storage applications, the development of resilient structures and infrastructures, the prevention or mitigation of natural hazards, and the establishment of built environments that can adapt their features to meet human activity needs.

The selected post-doctoral researcher will push the current knowledge boundaries about the multiphysical properties and behavior of geomaterials subjected to electrical current flows, by means of experimental laboratory investigations and coupled theoretical analyses, from the microscopic to the macroscopic scales.

Please contact Prof. Alessandro F. Rotta Loria (af-rottaloria@northwestern.edu) for more information about this position and the MEL. This call closes on February 25th, 2020.

Further information on this position can be found in the attached document.

Postdoc position at Delft University of Technology-Centrifuge modelling of cyclic soil-monopile interaction

Applications are welcome for a 2-year postdoc position to investigate the cyclic soil-monopile interaction using geotechnical centrifuge. The successful candidate will investigate the cyclic behaviour of small-scale monopile models in sandy soil, both dry and saturated, using two geotechnical centrifuge facilities at TU Delft and Deltares. Candidates should possess a PhD degree in Civil/Geotechnical Engineering or related areas, proven experience in geotechnical centrifuge testing, preferably including soil-structure interaction problems and cyclic loading, and excellent knowledge of soil mechanics and foundation engineering.

Full description of the position along with the details on how to apply can be found in the following link:

For more information about this vacancy please contact Dr. Amin Askarinejad: A.Askarinejad@tudelft.nl, or Dr. Federico Pisanò: F.Pisano@tudelft.nl.

The closing date for the applications is February 1st, 2020.
