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:

Two Postdoctoral Positions in Computational Geomechanics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in Computational Geomechanics. The positions offer the possibility of working on multiscale multiphysics modelling of fluid-structure-soil interaction in offshore geotechnics. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in Geotechnical Engineering, Computational Mechanics or other relevant disciplines and have the ability to build an independent, externally funded research program at the forefront of their field. Programming experience in C++/Fortran/etc. and numerical modelling experience using FEM/DEM/CFD code(s) are required. The positions are expected to get started as early as possible. Contract duration: 1~2 years (extensions are possible based on the performance of research achievements).

Closing date for applications: You may apply for this position until March 14, 2021 by email to the contacts given below. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will be scheduled with early close of application depending on the number of candidates received.

Contacts: Please submit an up-to-date curriculum vitae C.V. and a letter stating your motivation to apply and your key relevant qualities to Dr Yin-Fu JIN (yinfu.jin@polyu.edu.hk) and Dr. Jie YANG (doc.jie.yang@gmail.com).

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.

Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering” – 12–17 January 2020, Ascona (Switzerland)

The Winter School “From research to practise in geotechnical engineering”, coordinated by Prof. I. Anastasopoulos, will take place in Ascona (Switzerland) from 12 to 17 January 2020.

With the ultimate goal of developing innovative mitigation techniques, the international geotechnical engineering community has made substantial efforts to gain deeper insights on geotechnical hazards. For the state of practice to advance, academics need to join forces with practitioners.
The Winter School aims to bring these two groups together, to question the status quo, and to propose out‐of‐the‐box solutions. The program will combine:
a) Keynote lectures by international experts from the academia and the industry;
b) Seminars on state‐of‐the‐art numerical and physical modelling techniques;
c) Presentations by the participants;
d) Panel sessions, where the participants will have a “debate” with industry and academia experts on the applicability of their ideas;
e) Special session on start‐ups, on the process of product development, from initial conception to founding of a new company.
