Nature-and bio-based solutions for ecosystem restoration, landslide hazard mitigation, and ground improvement: research and application novelties – Special issue of Ecological Engineering 

The special issue of Ecological Engineering entitled “Nature-and bio-based solutions for ecosystem restoration, landslide hazard mitigation, and ground improvement: research and application novelties” aims at building a multidisciplinary framework that can assist both researchers and practitioners in effectively transitioning from the latest scientific research to practical solutions for mitigating landslide hazards, preventing soil erosion, and improving hydro-mechanical soil characteristics. Contributions from the fields of geotechnical and ecological engineering, biodiversity and forestry management, hydrogeology, and agronomy, are welcome. The focus will be on developing practical solutions that can be applied in real-world scenarios. Additionally, there will be a significant emphasis on exploring the interactions between industry and research to bridge the gap between scientific knowledge and implementation. Submission Deadline: 31st March 2024.

PhD Positions


Monash Computational Geomechanics (MCG) Lab at Monash University is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to develop a next generation of computational approach that combines our in-house SPH platform, advanced constitutive models and Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) to provide realistic simulations of block caving process at the field scale. More info on this flyer.


The Geotechnical Research Group at Chalmers University of Technology is looking for a highly motivated  individual to fill a PhD student position linked with a research project (funded by the Swedish research council) on the development of calcined clays as supplementary cementitious material for ground improvement (mass stabilisation, deep mixing). More info on this site.


School of Civil Engineering at Shandong University (China) invites applications for a postdoctoral position for a research project on developing advanced detection technologies for geohazard prevention based on drones: new monitoring and early warning systems for geohazards. For more info please, contact  Prof. Ji-Peng Wang (ji-peng.wang@sdu.edu.cn).
