Post-doc Position at the University of Southampton (UK)
University of Southampton (UK) is hiring a post-doc for a 12months project on shared anchors for floating offshore renewable energy technologies. The project will systematically investigate the cyclic behaviour of those anchors by geotechnical centrifuge modelling in the new National Infrastructure Laboratory. Centrifuge tests will be complemented by X-ray tomography to investigate the anchor failure mechanism. This is an excellent opportunity to work closely with the offshore industry on the future of offshore engineering, as the project has several industrial partners (NGI, EQUINOR, CORPOWER, Lloyds Register and ORE CATAPULT).

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:

Postdoc position at Navier Laboratory (France)
Applications are welcomed for a postdoc position in Navier Laboratory (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, Université Gustave Eiffel, CNRS – France) on the mitigation of crystalline swelling in clays by cationic exchange. This postdoc is part of the ALLUVIUM project (I-site FUTURE) and an on-going experimental campaign using XRD identified a shortlist of promising cationic compounds. In this postdoc, we propose to complement these experiments with molecular simulations to investigate in detail the effects of cationic exchange at the nano-scale.
The position can start anytime but not later than fall 2020.
