Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Division of Geology and Geotechnics at Chalmers is looking for an Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering who is passionate about pushing the state-of-the-art of modelling coupled processes (thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical) into geotechnical engineering applications. You will join a diverse gender-balanced research group with ambition to become internationally leading in Geotechnical Engineering with focus on natural geomaterials.
As Associate Professor or Senior Lecturer, you will contribute to teaching and development of the educational portfolio both at undergraduate and Masters levels, as well as providing education as part of Continuous Professional Development to the industry. In parallel, you will conduct your brand of research independently.
Application deadline: 11 August, 2019
Applications are invited for a one year full-time researcher based in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London in the area of discrete element modelling and computational fluid dynamics. The successful applicant will join the Geotechnics research group as a member of research staff and will conduct research on an EPSRC funded project entitled “Particle-scale investigation of seepage induced geotechnical instability”. The work will be conducted under the supervision of Professor Catherine O’Sullivan.
The start date for this research post is July 1 2019.

Postdoctoral position in Energy Geostructures field, Laboratory of Soil Mechanics (LMS), EPF Lausanne.
The position, funded by Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), aims at providing fundamental information on the mechanisms governing the cyclic thermo-mechanical behaviour of energy geostructures by analyzing multiphysical processes occurring within the soil, soil-structure interface and along energy geostructures through an experimental, theoretical, and numerical approach.
The position is now open and will start on August 1st 2019 or upon agreement.

Il Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering dell’Università di Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) e il Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering dell’Università di Chalmers (Svezia) selezionano candidati per un dottorato sul tema ‘Clay micromechanics: from experimental evidence at the nano/micro scale to particle-scale modelling via Discrete Element Method’.
Durata: 3 anni
Data di inizio: quanto prima possibile ma, in ogni caso, non oltre il 30 settembre 2019.
Si richiede un voto di laurea non inferiore a 104/110 (possibilmente 110/110). Per ulteriori informazioni contattare il Prof. Alessandro Tarantino (firstname.lastname@example.org).
La sesta conferenza internazionale su Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterization – ISC’6, organizzata dal TC102 (Technical Committee for Ground Property Characterization from In-Situ Tests) della ISSMGE, si terrà a Budapest dal 7 all’11 settembre 2020. È aperta la call for abstracts, con scadenza il 1o marzo 2019.
The ISC conferences are the major events in the life of ISSMGE’s TC102. Since 1998, it will be the 6th time that geotechnical engineers and geophysicists from all over the world will gather and share their knowledge and experiences.
Besides the conventional site characterization topics, the conference will also focus on some other recent challenges. As numerical modelling plays a more important role in geotechnical practice, there is an increasing demand for links between in situ test results and material model parameters. Some recent research projects in this field (e.g. sophisticated numerical analysis of in situ tests) are very promising, thus a proper forum for discussing those results may be an important starting point in these areas. A special session will be dedicated to this topic which aims to facilitate cooperation between specialists in both fields. Another important aim is to facilitate more active cooperation between geotechnical engineers and geophysicists. While the combined use of the two disciplines can be very beneficial, the use of geophysics in everyday geotechnical works is still limited. In addition to having a session for geophysical testing, we are planning another special session dedicated to potential benefits of cooperation between these two fields, where best practices are presented and discussed. Such a forum may be beneficial for both geophysicists and geotechnical engineers.
