ALERT Workshop (27-29 September 2021) and School (30 September – 2 October 2021)

ALERT Geomaterials Workshop 27th September to 29th September
ALERT Doctoral School 30th September to 2nd October
Aussois, France (or online)

The preliminary programme of the ALERT Doctoral School 2021 (link) in Aussois/online is now available. Be aware that changes can still occur. The programme of the Workshop (link) will follow soon.

Information and the link to the registration script can be found here.

As sanitary conditions are improving, it was decided to propose you two alternatives for your registration to the workshop and doctoral school: either you can come and participate in Aussois, or you can attend those remotely. Don’t worry, your choice can always be modified later on, as the sanitary conditions may change. As a reminder, the restrictions for entering France will depend on your country of departure and your vaccination status.

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Offshore Foundation Systems at Durham University (UK)

The Department of Engineering at Durham University (UK) is advertising a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Offshore Foundation Systems position. The postdoctoral researcher will work on a British Council funded project entitled “Floating hybrid renewable energy systems in Turkey”. This project aims to develop a design for hybrid floating wind turbine solar energy foundation systems. The project involves collaboration with the Middle East Technical University and industry partners in Turkey. The postdoctoral researcher will carry out advanced numerical simulations to predict the response of the foundations and the anchorage systems.

The employment contract will be up to 16/02/2023 (about 23 months). The deadline for the application is 22 April 2021. More details can be found at:

Post doctoral position at INERIS (Verneuil-en-Halatte, France)


Ineris proposes a post-doctoral position on the understanding and modelling of THMC processes in deep geothermal systems.

The postdoctoral position is offered in the Natural Hazards, Underground structures and storages unit within the Site and Territory Division. The unit activity covers all aspects of risks prevention related to the exploitation and post-exploitation of ground and underground including underground excavations, abandoned mines, salt caverns, deep boreholes, gas underground storage, geothermal systems and rock slopes. The core expertise of the unit is numerical modelling of thermo-hydromechanical and chemical (THMC) coupled processes in geomechanics.

This post-doctoral is expected to begin on 15th March 2021 for 6 months. The application should be submitted in French or in English. It must include a resume (including a list of publications and the names and positions of your former research advisers) and a cover letter. —> Mail to: zady.ouraga@ineris.fr
