The University provides a working and teaching environment which is inclusive and welcoming and where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate these key principles as part of the assessment process.
Start Date: ideally 1 October 2021
Assistant/Associate Professor position in Hydraulic & Geotechnical Engineering at Shandong University, China
The School of Civil Engineering of Shandong University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant/associate professor position in Hydraulic & Geotechnical Engineering. Applicants in all areas of engineering relevant to the field of Hydraulic Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering are welcome. Representative research areas includes: multi-phase flow in porous media, stability and safety evaluation of hydraulic/geotechnical structures, micromechanics of geomaterials, atmosphere-plant-soil interactions, etc. All candidates with a PhD degree and advanced experience in experimental, field, computational, or a combination of these capabilities will be considered. The position will be affiliated with the Department of Hydraulic Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of Shandong University.
Shandong University, under the direct jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education, is a leading university in China with a membership of Project 985. It ranks 151-200 in the world according to ARWU world university ranking 2020.
Successful candidates will be offered a competitive salary and a starting research fund. On-campus accommodation (3-4 bedrooms) will also be provided at a preferential price.
Please submit a C.V. including two academic reference letters to Prof. Ji-Peng Wang: email@example.com . After a review of the background of the candidates by the research committee, formal applications to the university will be invited. The position is open until it is filled.
Assistant or Associate Professor – Civil and Environmental Engineering (Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada)
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) invites applications from qualified candidates for a preliminary tenure‐track appointment in Engineering and Northern Development at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor beginning July 1, 2021.
The candidate will be expected to have technical capacities to engage in research supporting the convergent problems of resource industry sustainability, northern development, and resilient infrastructure for northern communities in a changing climate. In‐line with the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, training of indigenous students and professionals, and respectfully interacting with northern communities to increase Northern Canada’s technical knowledge base will be an important component of this position.
The research focus should complement existing strengths in the department. Research areas may include but are not limited to: buildings, transportation corridors, and other infrastructure in zones of climate‐ driven permafrost thaw; mine site reclamation; soft soil engineering; and water‐permafrost‐infrastructure interactions. Expertise in monitoring soils and infrastructure in the field would be desirable. Experience and/or a strong interest in working in Northern Canada and with Indigenous communities would be an asset.
We encourage applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in Engineering and/or with experience in mentoring students from such groups.
Applications are welcomed for two Assistant Professor positions of Computational Multiscale Mechanics and Geomechanics at University of Twente (Netherlands).
Focus of the first position is on the development of advanced open-source computational tools for the investigation of particulate materials. The second position is dedicated to the multiscale and multiphase modelling of soils, for material characterisation, prediction, improvement.
For more information follow the links below:
– Computational Multiscale Mechanics (deadline 1 April 2020):
– Geomechanics (deadline 15 April 2020):
Immediate opening for a fully funded position (40 hours a week) available at the Institute of Rock Mechanics and Tunnelling at Graz University of Technology. Upon agreement on a qualification agreement, the candidate will be appointed as assistant professor.
The topics of digitalisation and building information modelling have been chosen as research focal points for underground space technology and rock mechanics.
Deadline for application: 28.10.2019

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.
