L’AGI-IGS, chapter italiano dell’International Geosynthetics Society, in occasione dell’ottava edizione dell’IGS Student Award bandisce l’avvio del processo di selezione per l’assegnazione del premio “IGS Student Award – 2020”.
Il premio, che per questa edizione verrà assegnato durante la conferenza EuroGeo 7 (https://eurogeo7.org/) che si terrà a Varsavia (Polonia) dal 6 al 9 Settembre 2020, è stato istituito per diffondere tra i giovani studenti di ingegneria geotecnica e ambientale di tutto il mondo la conoscenza e migliorare la comunicazione e la comprensione sul mondo dei geosintetici e sulle tecnologie ad essi associate.
Il premio consiste nella partecipazione gratuita alla conferenza EuroGeo 7 e in un assegno di 1’000 USD che servirà a coprire le spese di viaggio e di vitto/alloggio sostenute dal vincitore/vincitrice per partecipare alla conferenza ed esporre il proprio lavoro redatto sotto forma di technical paper.
I candidati devono essere stati studenti di laurea triennale, magistrale o di dottorato durante il periodo 2016-2019.
I concorrenti devono far pervenire la domanda, precisando:
1. curriculum vitae del/della candidato/a;
2. una pagina in formato A4, con titolo, testo e illustrazioni (massimo 2 figure) della nota (in lingua inglese) dedicata ad un tema correlato all’ingegneria con geosintetici;
3. recapiti (indirizzo, telefono, cellulare e e-mail);
4. indicazione di un “tutor” di riferimento.
La candidatura deve essere presentata via e-mail all’AGI (firstname.lastname@example.org) entro il 30 Novembre 2019.
Il vincitore del premio sarà designato da una apposita commissione costituita dal Presidente dell’AGI, dal Presidente dell’AGI-IGS e da un membro del Consiglio Direttivo AGI-IGS.
Il candidato vincitore sarà tenuto a redigere la nota tecnica secondo il formato previsto dalla conferenza EuroGeo 7 entro il 12 Gennaio 2020.

Opportunity for PhD studies on Unsaturated Geomaterials and Contaminant Transport at Monash University (Melbourne)
Three scholarships are available for PhD studies commencing in 2019. The scholarships will provide support for three years on a full-time basis for a research project leading to a PhD.
Project 1: the project aims at developing an experimentally validated theory of the behaviour of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) under high temperatures and salt gradients that will lead to a significant improvement in the understanding of their hydraulic behaviour. The PhD will focus on the evaluation of temperature effects, wet/dry cycles salt gradients and stress changes on the water retention curves (WRCs) of geosynthetic clay liners.
Project 2 (2 scholarships): the project will focus on contaminant transport through lining systems. Particular emphasis will be given to chemical compatibility issues between a suite of emerging contaminants (PFAS, etc.) and soil and geosynthetic liners. This project aims at providing practitioners with better tools to estimate the design life of hydraulic barriers systems.
Applicants should have an Honours 1 or First Class Honours Degree in Engineering or Science and an interest in analytical/numerical and experimental research. The scholarship value is A$28,500 per annum, with the possibility of a top-up depending on academic standing and/or experience. The potential for further earning is also possible through tutoring.
For further information, contact Prof. Malek Bouazza, at email@example.com. Applications including a curriculum vitae, a copy of academic transcript, evidence of English-language proficiency (international applicants only) names and contact details of at least two academic referees should be sent to the above email address.
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher in computational modelling of gas-induced fractures in low-permeability porous media. The post-doctoral researcher will push the boundaries of existing understanding of coupling between gas flow in low permeability porous media and fracturing process, through the development of theoretical models and numerical tools. It is anticipated that the researcher will need to develop models which include discrete pathways in a heterogeneous (continuum) material. Challenges exist in simulating the development of the discrete pathways and the impact of the heterogeneity on the macroscopic behaviour. The simulation tools developed will be based on existing finite element tools for multiphase flow and mechanics, which require novel additions to include discrete pathways. Close collaboration with experimentalists is expected.
The closing date for applications is 11th October 2019.

1) Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor of Geo-Monitoring and Data Analytics (tenure track). The position is proposed to develop advanced knowledge of the response of geostructures from data analytics, and improve current life-cycle design and assessment models. This requires an understanding of how climate change and increasing demographic pressure impact the life cycle of critical geostructures, and of how to extract relevant geotechnical information from multi-year and multiscale data streams.
The closing date for applications is 7 October 2019.

2) Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor of Geotechnical Uncertainty (tenure track). The position is proposed to investigate soil mechanical material behaviour accounting for uncertainties relating to, for example, measurements, statistics, transformation from measured to derived properties, and external (including environmental) loadings. It takes into consideration the random, spatial and systematic components of uncertainty, as well as uncertainties relating to the cross-correlations of material properties and multi-physical couplings, and develops new solutions to better control and reduce the geotechnical uncertainty and risk in geotechnical assessments and construction processes.
The closing date for applications is 7 October 2019.
