Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment – 22-24 Gennaio 2019, Villars-sur-Ollon (Svizzera)

The second edition of the Winter School, dedicated to Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment, is coming up and the deadline to register via early bird registration is approaching (October 31st).

The Winter School on Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment will be held on January 22nd-24th 2019, in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland. Geomechanics, Environment and Energy are increasingly related and contemporary themes. The goal of the school is to provide participants with a deep understanding of selected topics in Geomechanics which are fundamental for applications related to Energy and the Environment. This Winter School is organized in the framework of the international journal “Geomechanics for Energy and the Environment”.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the following e-mail address: gete-school@epfl.ch

ALERT Geomaterials – Newsletter

Segnaliamo la possibilità di iscriversi alla newsletter di ALERT (Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology) tramite l’apposito modulo del sito http://alertgeomaterials.eu/ .

The Alliance of Laboratories in Europe for Education, Research and Technology (ALERT) “Geomaterials” has been created in 1989 by Roberto Nova, Manuel Pastor, Ian Smith, Peter Vermeer, Olek Zienkiewicz and Félix Darve as a pioneering (at that time!) effort to develop a European School of Thinking in the field of the Mechanics of Geomaterials. The generic name “Geomaterials” is viewed as gathering together materials, whose mechanical behaviour depends on the pressure level, which can be dilatant under shearing and which are multiphase because of their porous structure. So, the “geomaterials” label brings together mainly soils, rocks and concrete. It has been obvious from the very beginning that there is a crucial need for a joint Graduate School in order to build firmly this European scientific group in the Mechanics of Geomaterials, in close link with the doctoral students.

The main areas of interest are
– micromechanics and constitutive modelling for geomaterials
– engineering, failure, strain localisation and instabilities
– large scale computations for geomaterials and geostructures
– integrity of geostructures and inverse analysis in geomechanics
– environmental geomechanics and durability of geomaterials

The core activity represents the annual meeting with ALERT Workshop and ALERT Doctoral School.

15 PhD vacancies (Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher positions) available at MATHEGRAM

MATHEGRAM is an MSCA Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU.

Granular materials, such as soils, agricultural seeds, metallic and ceramic powders, and pharmaceutical powders, are common in nature and have many industrial applications. They possess unique physical properties and a complicated flow behaviour. MATHEGRAM aims to improve our understanding of the thermomechanical behaviour of granular materials.

MATHEGRAM is now recruiting 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will work at a beneficiary institute with a 36-month employment contract and will register as a PhD at a European University within the MATHEGRAM network or affiliated universities. Each ESR will also receive additional training at the network level and undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic MATHEGRAM partners.

Ph.D. Scolarship at Newcastle University

Dr Yilin Gui is looking for candidates who could be interested in a PhD scholarship in Newcastle.

This doctoral project is about the development of a thermo-hydro-mechanical model capable of describing the effect of CO2 intermittent injection and expansion on the stability of a wellbore. The project starts from September 2018 and it lasts for 3.5 years. The closing date for submitting the application is the 13th of July.

For more information, the advertisement of the project is at the following link: https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/BKI411/phd-studentship-in-engineering-wellbore-stability-for-carbon-sequestration-in-geological-formations/
