Postdoctoral Position in Rock Mechanics at University of Lorraine (France)

Applications are welcomed for a Postdoctoral position at GeoRessources laboratory, University of Lorraine (France). He/she will notably collaborate to the CIGEO research project of Andra and should design and supervise experimental tests for characterizing thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) behavior of argillaceous rocks.

Duration: 1 year (renewable).

Post-doctoral researcher in computational geomechanics at Delft University of Technology

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.

Two positions of Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology

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.

Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics for Sustainability at Delft University of Technology

Applications are invited for a Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics for Sustainability. The position is proposed to improve our 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.

The closing date for applications is 1 September 2019

Lecturer / Senior Lecturer/ Associate Professor position at University of Auckland – New Zealand

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Auckland invites applications from outstanding candidates for a position in Geotechnical Engineering at the Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor level.

The candidate will be expected to develop a strong research programme, to teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Civil and Environmental Engineering programmes and to participate in the administrative activities of the Department, the Faculty of Engineering and the University.

The selected candidate must:

  • hold a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering
  • have an excellent academic record as evidenced by a publication record appropriate to the appointment level sought
  • demonstrate experience and expertise in specialised laboratory and/or innovative field-based research.

It is anticipated that the area of research and professional practice may involve geotechnical characterisation of problematic soils, slope engineering, rock and tunnel engineering, geotechnical earthquake engineering, and/or other emerging geotechnical specialties.
