Post-Doc opportunity in the CIMNE-UPC Geomechanics group

Applications are invited for a Severo Ochoa PostDoc Researcher Position at the CIMNE-UPC Geomechanics group in Barcelona (Spain). It is an opportunity to join an active research group working in advanced coupled numerical analysis. The appointment is intended to run for three years. The deadline for applications is June 14th. More details are provided in the attached file: VAC-2020-26

E-UNSAT 2020 Lisbon – postponed to 19-21 October 2020

Due to the COV-19 outbreak in all European countries in the last weeks, in agreement with the Chair and the Secretary of the TC-106, E-UNSAT 2020 conference to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, will be postponed. The new dates have been fixed to October 19-21, 2020.
Postponing the conference was necessary to allow for safe travelling and enjoying the event. Hopefully this delay will be enough for the emergency to be over. Further information can be found at https://eunsat2020.tecnico.ulisboa.pt

Two Post-doctoral researcher opportunities at the University of Nottingham (UK)

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.

EGU General Assembly 2020 – Sessione sulla geotermia superficiale

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.

E-UNSAT 2020 Lisbona – call for abstracts

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 at École des Ponts ParisTech

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
