Four post-doc and five PhD positions at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Four post-doc and five PhD positions in soil-structure interaction for tree stability: “Engineering a safer urban forest under extreme storms”

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUTS) is actively recruiting multiple post-doc and PhD positions for studying tree stability problems using geotechnical and structural engineering principles and research methods. We are looking for candidates who are interested in:
(1) Field testing of tree biomechanics and root anchorage;
(2) Centrifuge modelling of soil-root interaction;
(3) Numerical modelling of soil-root interaction;
(4) Wind tunnel modelling of wind-tree-soil-root interaction; and
(5) Analytical tree dynamic modelling for reliability-based analysis.
Different positions require different skill sets; please see attached detailed job advert. For more information: JobAdvert-PhD and JobAdvert-PostDoc

Application:  Interested candidates are invited to send (i) a motivation letter (< 2 pages); (ii) a CV with a full list of publication; (iii) proof of English proficiency (valid IELTS/TOFEL certificates); (iv) names of 2 references; (v) copies of bachelor, master degrees or/and PhD degrees and transcripts; and (vi) abstract of master dissertation (if any) to the project coordinator, Dr Anthony Leung (ceanthony@ust.hk).
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed (remotely) by project members. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Starting date is September 2021.

Contact: For more information about these positions, please contact the project coordinator: Dr Anthony Leung (ceanthony@ust.hk)

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:

For more information please contact Dr. Federico Pisanò: F.Pisano@tudelft.nl, or Dr. Amin Askarinejad: A.Askarinejad@tudelft.nl .

The closing date for applications is April 30th, 2020. Preferred starting date is November 1st, 2020.

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

Applications are welcome for a 2-year postdoc position to investigate the cyclic soil-monopile interaction using geotechnical centrifuge. The successful candidate will investigate the cyclic behaviour of small-scale monopile models in sandy soil, both dry and saturated, using two geotechnical centrifuge facilities at TU Delft and Deltares. Candidates should possess a PhD degree in Civil/Geotechnical Engineering or related areas, proven experience in geotechnical centrifuge testing, preferably including soil-structure interaction problems and cyclic loading, and excellent knowledge of soil mechanics and foundation engineering.

Full description of the position along with the details on how to apply can be found in the following link:

For more information about this vacancy please contact Dr. Amin Askarinejad: A.Askarinejad@tudelft.nl, or Dr. Federico Pisanò: F.Pisano@tudelft.nl.

The closing date for the applications is February 1st, 2020.
