PhD and Postdoc positions in Infrastructure Geotechnics at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

The Geotechnics research group in Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, is looking for PhD students and  Postdoctoral Researchers in Infrastructure Geotechnics (max. two positions each). The applicants are expected to be passionate about introducing/developing the state-of-the-art of modelling and testing of coupled processes (thermo-hydro-mechanical) into geotechnical engineering. The current research projects in infrastructure geotechnics include application of deep mixing under road and railway embankments and bottom support of excavations, as well as modelling natural and man-made slopes etc. These are problems where the coupling of mechanical, hydraulic and thermal response, as well as soil-structure interaction, is important. The applicants are expected to engage with industry, to create innovative solutions for major stakeholders. In parallel with research,  the applicants are expected to contribute to teaching at undergraduate or Masters level (typically max. 10%-20% of their time), with focus on Geotechnical Engineering. The positions are temporary research positions (4-5 years for PhD, 2 years for Postdoc), fully funded by external research projects.

The First Mediterranean Symposium on Landslides – MSL 2021 – Naples, 7-9 June 2021

Il primo Mediterranean Symposium on Landslides, intitolato “Slope Stability Problems in Stiff Clays and Flysch Formations“, si terrà a Napoli dal 7 al 9 giugno 2021. La scadenza per l’invio dei sommari è fissata al primo giugno 2020. Gli atti del simposio saranno pubblicati sulla raccolta open access “Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering” di Springer Nature.

Landslides represent a relevant problem for most of the countries overlooking the Mediterranean. This trivial consideration should prompt researchers, professionals, and stakeholders in this region to form closer relationships and engage themselves in a continuous exchange of data and ideas to find common strategies of landslide risk mitigation.
A common problem concerns the stability of slopes in hard fissured soils, weak rocks and flysch deposits, which are widespread all over the region, posing major problems to the development of these areas.
It is evident that the behaviour of such a wide and complex class of materials, spreading across large areas in this corner of the world, cannot be interpreted simply through the basic laws of the Soil or Rock Mechanics. With the goal in mind of urging people living on the Mediterranean to join their efforts, we decided to organize a Mediterranean Symposium on Landslides (MSL) in Napoli in June, 2021 hoping that this initiative will be the first of a series of similar periodic events.

XIII International Symposium on Landslides – Cartagena (Colombia) – postponed to 2021

Due to the drastic measures imposed at the local and international level to control the Coronavirus, the entry of foreigners to Colombia has been forbidden since the middle of March 2020 and most probably it will be very limited until the month of June 2020 and therefore we were forced to postpone the XIII International Symposium on Landslides to February 22-26, 2021.

XXVII Convegno Nazionale di Geotecnica posticipato al 2021

Carissimi,
l’emergenza causata dal diffondersi del contagio dal COVID-19 complica ogni giorno di più la nostra vita personale e lavorativa al punto da essere ormai costretti ad un isolamento domiciliare, che ci auguriamo possa presto terminare. In questo scenario, che ogni giorno diventa sempre più preoccupante e del quale non è facile stimare la durata, il Comitato Scientifico dell’evento e il Consiglio di Presidenza dell’AGI, avendo come priorità la sicurezza e la salute dei Soci e dei Colleghi che parteciperanno al prossimo XXVII CNG, hanno deciso di spostare l’evento al periodo 7-9 luglio del 2021 in modo da consentire ai partecipanti di vivere l’evento nella consueta atmosfera di serenità e cordialità che da sempre lo caratterizza.
Tutti gli autori delle memorie saranno contattati per essere informati circa le comunicazioni relative agli articoli presentati.

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

Applications are welcome for a 2.5-years postdoc position on the numerical modelling of cyclic soil-monopile interaction in offshore wind turbines at Delft University of Technology (Netherlands). The research work will include development, set-up and calibration of 3D FE monopile models, in combination with advanced constitutive modelling of cyclic sand behaviour. Design of the numerical simulation programme, and validation of obtained results, will be carried out in close collaboration with experimentalists and industry experts. The new knowledge gained from combined physical and numerical modelling will be oriented towards the formulation and implementation of a new engineering p-y model for the analysis of large-diameter monopiles in sand under cyclic loading.

Full description of the position and instructions for applicants can be found using the following link:

Researcher position – Geotechnics- Imperial College London

Applications are invited for a full-time researcher based in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London to work on the development of in-situ sensors in soil for 18 months, with the possibility of extension. The successful applicant will join the Geotechnics research group as a member of research staff and will conduct research on an UKRI/NSF funded project entitled “Sits NSF-UKRUL Rapid deployment of multi-functional modular sensing systems in the soil”.
The work will be conducted under the supervision of Professor Catherine O’Sullivan, in collaboration with Prof. Daniele Dini and Dr Tom Reddyhof (Department of Mechanical Engineering) and Prof. Andrew Holmes (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering).  The project is a collaboration with researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, US.  This project therefore presents a good opportunity to develop skills in cross-disciplinary working with a highly international team, comprising academic staff, research staff and PhD students.  We are particularly interested in applicants with experience in either laboratory geophysics, including bender elements, or with experience of running DEM simulations.  Please contact Catherine O’Sullivan (cath.osullivan@imperial.ac.uk) or refer to the official advertisement:
