I terreni a struttura complessa costituiscono una delle sfide irrisolte dell’ingegneria geotecnica. Su questo tema, e in particolare sulla loro interazione con le infrastrutture, il prof. Vassilis Marinos, dell’Università di Atene (NTUA), vice Presidente di IAEG, terrà la prima “Mediterranean Lecture”, ideata per creare un ponte scientifico-culturale fra l’Italia e gli altri Paesi del Mediterraneo. L’evento, in programma per il 15 giugno 2022 alle ore 10.30, sarà ospitato dal Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile, Edile e Ambientale dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II e sarà trasmesso on-line. La partecipazione è libera. Maggiori informazioni sull’evento e sulle modalità di partecipazione in questo flyer e in questa pagina.
Applications are invited for a post of Research Assistant/Research Associate, in the School of Engineering at Newcastle University (UK) in the area of computational geotechnics. The successful applicant will join the ACHILLES Programme at Newcastle University to carry out high-quality research on infrastructure embankments and the impacts of climate change.
The application is open until the 18th May 2021.
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.

3rd International Conference on Natural Hazards & Infrastructure, 22 – 24 June 2021, Athens (Greece)
La terza International Conference on Natural Hazards & Infrastructure (ICONHIC2021) è prevista per il 22-24 giugno 2021 ad Atene (Grecia).
Il Comitato Scientifico ricorda che la scadenza della call for abstracts è il 25 ottobre 2020, nell’auspicio che la conferenza si tenga come da programma a giugno 2021 ad Atene o venga tutt’al più rinviata al 2022 in caso di impedimenti dovuti al COVID-19.

Founded in 2016, the conference emerged in response to the ever-growing need for a landmark event that will gather together a broad field of expertise, aiming to prevent and reduce the risk of extreme natural events and their aftermaths on infrastructure. Sponsored by international industrial partners and institutions, who worked hand-in-hand with the academia to deliver an event that fosters collaboration between different stakeholders, ICONHIC2016 and ICONHIC2019 attracted a large number of attendees from all over the world, coming from exceptionally diverse technical or business backgrounds, with one overarching goal: to prepare within the constantly changing and highly uncertain environmental conditions and develop future-ready societies, able to reduce risk & manage disruption.
Following its evolution philosophy, the ICONHIC 2021 edition ventures the step forward: to build upon facilitative dialogue and strong synergies and propose an informed and realistic course of action against catastrophic natural events.

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.
