The Nottingham Centre for Geomechanics (NCG) is currently undertaking two large multi-disciplinary projects related to investigating the behaviour of made-ground consisting of coal-mining spoil. NCG brings together expertise from the worlds of civil, geotechnical, and mining engineering as well as mathematics and material sciences to solve all forms of soil and rock-related design and construction problems. The projects are funded by the European Commission Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) and include project partners from across Europe.
The NCG is looking to recruit two post-doctoral researchers who will support the work of these RFCS projects as well as support the wider work of the research group. Although the NCG will consider any candidate with a strong fundamental geotechnical background, they are particularly interested in candidates who have experience with element testing, numerical modelling (FEA/FDM) or centrifuge modelling.
Candidates will have a first degree in Civil Engineering or cognate subject and will have been awarded a PhD (or have submitted their thesis for examination), ideally in an area of Geotechnical Engineering. The successful candidate will have good presentation and report writing skills. A good publication record will be an advantage but its absence should not hinder applications from those who have recently submitted their theses.

Vi segnaliamo, nell’ambito della EGU General Assembly 2020 (Vienna, 3-8 maggio 2020), la sessione sulla geotermia superficiale per il condizionamento degli edifici.
La sessione ERE 2.8, intitolata Shallow geothermal systems for building heating and cooling: geoscience and engineering approaches, è coordinata da Giorgia Dalla Santa (Università di Padova), Witold Bogusz (Polish Building Research Institute, Warsaw), Francesco Cecinato (Università di Milano), Fleur Loveridge (University of Leeds) e Donatella Sterpi (Politecnico di Milano). È possibile presentare entro il 15 gennaio 2020 un sommario a cui farà seguito una presentazione orale o tramite poster, da tenere nell’ambito della sessione durante il convegno.
The session welcomes contributions about shallow geothermal energy applications, including traditional closed- and open-loop borehole heat exchangers as well as so-called energy geostructures (e.g. thermo-active foundations, walls, tunnels).
Different types of analysis and approaches are relevant to this session, spanning from the evaluation of ground thermal properties to the mapping of shallow geothermal potential, from energy storage and district heating to sustainability issues and consequences of the geothermal energy use, from the design of new heat exchangers and installation techniques to the energy and thermo-(hydro-) mechanical performance of energy geostructures. Contributions based on experimental, analytical and numerical modelling are welcome as well as interventions about legislative aspects.

Bando per un posto di Associate Professor/Professor e un posto di Lecturer/Senior Lecturer
The Department of Mechanical and Construction Engineering has particular strengths in Civil Engineering Heritage, Future Construction Technology, and Construction Engineering Management. We are currently seeking to strengthen and consolidate our existing activity in Civil Engineering. In particular, we are looking for candidates with research expertise in fire and explosion resistance of structures, but welcome applications from candidates across all of our areas of research, which include: numerical geotechnics; highway materials; numerical modelling of water and environmental chemistry; railway infrastructure.
Closing Date: 03 November 2019

Vi segnaliamo che il 15 Ottobre 2019 all’Università degli Studi del Sannio (Benevento) si terrà una giornata di studio sul tema “La risposta sismica delle dighe: osservazioni e previsioni. Diverse realtà a confronto“.
L’evento è organizzato dal Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Università del Sannio in collaborazione con l’ITCOLD (Comitato Nazionale Italiano per Grandi Dighe) e la sezione YEF (Young Engineer Forum).
Si prega di dare conferma di partecipazione all’indirizzo e-mail: email@example.com .

Vi segnaliamo la call for abstracts per la IV Conferenza Europea sui Terreni Parzialmente Saturi, E-UNSAT 2020, organizzata dall’Instituto Superior Tecnico di Lisbona in collaborazione con la Delft University of Technology e l’Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, che si terrà a Lisbona dal 24 al 26 Giugno 2020. Sono Conference Chairs Rafaela Cardoso, Cristina Jommi e Enrique Romero.
La scadenza per l’invio degli abstract è il 19 Maggio 2019. Si auspica, come per le precedenti edizioni, una significativa partecipazione della comunità geotecnica italiana.
Researcher position open at École des Ponts ParisTech, Paris, France.
The successful candidate will develop research in numerical modelling of soil-structure interaction under complex loadings including dynamics. Fundamental and numerical studies will be developed in relation with experimental studies performed in Laboratoire Navier and by outside partners. In addition to the development of classical techniques for numerical modelling of materials and structures (FEM, BEM, FFT, …), the valorization of big data gathered from the monitoring of geotechnical structures will be a priority area of research. This includes the development of new tools based on artificial intelligence systems for modelling and design in geotechnics.
Deadline: 18 April 2019
