Two Postdoctoral positions at the Hainan institute of Zhejiang University (China)

The Hainan Institute of Zhejiang University invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in Geotechnical Engineering. The Institute seeks applicants in all areas of Geotechnical Engineering with representative examples including but not limited to: offshore geotechnics, numerical and physically modelling of geo-materials. All candidates with advanced experience in experimental (particularly centrifuge modelling), field, computational, or a combination of these geotechnical capabilities will be considered. There are currently two postdoctoral positions at the Hainan institute of Zhejiang University funded by the institute in the year of 2021.

About the Institute: Zhejiang University, one of the top universities in Asia, is one of the earliest institutions of higher education in China. It ranks 53th according to QS World University Rankings 2020.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in Engineering, Science or other relevant discipline and have the ability to build an independent, externally funded research program at the forefront of their field.

Research topics: The research institute mainly focus on the geotechnical problems in offshore geotechnics, particularly in the areas relating to characterization and modelling of marine sediments (including gas hydrate bearing sediments), offshore foundations, pipeline geotechnics and offshore geo-hazards.

Closing date for applications: 31 Dec 2020

Contacts: Please submit a C.V. including two academic references letters to Dr Yi Hong (yi_hong@zju.edu.cn).

PostDoc position in Computational Geomechanics and Multiscale Modelling at UFZ (Germany)

The Department of Environmental Informatics at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), whose main base is in Leipzig (Germany), is seeking at the earliest possible date a PostDoc in Computational Geomechanics and Multiscale Modelling.

Energy and environmental aspects of geoscience remain the greatest challenges that our society will face in the coming decades. To provide a numerical tool for environmental protection (e.g. sub-surface integrity) and energy transition (e.g. underground energy storage), Department of Environmental Informatics develops an open-source Finite Element platform, OpenGeoSys in C++. The tool enables us to simulate multi-physical processes in sub-surface such as fluid and heat transport, or rock deformation and failure. For simulation of discontinuous deformation or crack propagation in rock, a variational phase-field (VPF) model has been adapted and implemented in OpenGeoSys (OGS-6). Within the GeomInt2 project (www.ufz.de/geomint) the VPF method shall be further developed and applied to various applications such as field experiments in the Underground Research Laboratories and Mines in Mont Terri (Opalinus clay) and Springen (salt rock), respectively.

Closing date for applications: 22.11.2020

Place of work: Leipzig – More information here.
