Tenure-track position in geotechnical engineering at Polytechnique Montréal

Polytechnique Montréal is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position in geotechnical engineering.

Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
– rock mechanics
– physical modeling (large scale or in situ scale)
– experimental soil mechanics
– geomechanics with application to green energy or underground hydrogen and CO2 storage, or geohazard assessment (e.g. rockfalls and landslides)

International Webinar on Rock Mechanics (1 July 2021)


The sixth session of the International Webinar on Rock Mechanics will be held on Thursday, July 1 at 5:00 pm (Paris time) by videoconference (see attached invitation).
This series of webinars is a collaboration of the young members groups CFMR_jeunes (France), AGI (Italy), SEMR (Spain), CTES-YM CHILE, Ingeokring (Netherlands) and SPEG (Peru).

The upcoming session is organized by the CFMR_jeunes group and will contain two presentations:
– Feedback from some injections carried out in a mixed soft rock and soil formation – Aï-Na BLAISE (Tractebel).
– Experimental and numerical investigations on rock salt macroscopic behavior in the context of underground storage – Mejda AZABOU (Storengy).

Participation is free and should be confirmed via the following form: https://lnkd.in/dwVQXne

International Webinar on Rock Mechanics – March-April 2021

Some Young Members of different ISRM National Groups (France, Italy, Paraguay, and Spain) are organizing a series of international webinars on rock mechanics, with the aim of involving young researchers in different educational activities. They are contacting other ISRM National Groups to involve more countries in this initiative.

A tentative program has been created, and some online lectures have already been scheduled for the upcoming months. The flyer of the first programmed webinar, which is organized by the Young Members’ Group (Groupe de travail CFMR-Jeunes) of the ISRM French National Group is attached here.

The first session will take place on 11 March and you can register for free. It will include two contributions:
– Thermo-hydro-mechanical behavior of clay-rock in deep radioactive waste repositories
Philipp Braun (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech)
– Site investigation and design of protective structures in an unstable area in the city of Majukavo-Mayotte-France
Mohammed Annakib (Université de Rennes)

Upcoming dates:
01 April 2021
Relating physical and mechanical properties to temperature induced damage in carbonate rocks
Federico Vagnon (Università di Torino)

EUROCK2021 – Turin 21 – 25 September 2021

The Italian Geotechnical Society (AGI), on appointment by the ISRM International Society of Rock Mechanics, is delighted to announce that Turin will host EUROCK 2021 – Mechanics and Rock Engineering from theory to practice – from 21 to 25 September 2021.

Due to COVID-19 outbreak and in order to give the chance to attend a new event with interesting and innovative researches, the conference has been rescheduled and will be organized in September 2021, almost one year from the new dates of the 2020 Eurock edition.

The abstract submission deadline has been postponed to 31 October 2020.

5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields – September 9-11, 2021 Fukuoka, Japan

Il 5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields si terrà a Fukuoka (Giappone) nel settembre 2021. Promosso dalle Associazioni Internazionali ISRM e IAEG, segue l’analogo Workshop svolto ad Ischia nel settembre 2015.

On behalf of the Japanese Society for Rock Mechanics and the Japan Society of Engineering Geology, the Organizing Committe is pleased to hold “RMEGV2021: 5th International Workshop on Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology in Volcanic Fields”.

The goals of this workshop are to promote the exchange of ideas and information among civil engineers and geologists regarding serious issues related to volcanic fields, and to find possible solutions to them, as well as to aid in the fusion of Civil Engineering and Geology in terms of applied volcanic science, including construction, environment, groundwater, disasters, and geothermal energy. Many resources can be found in the vicinity of volcanic fields, such as hydro-geothermal energy and groundwater. On the other hand, many natural disasters and other risks to infrastructure construction also exist due to the geoscientific and geotechnical features in these areas. Thus, civil engineers and engineering geologists strive to solve these problems based on the existing data on volcanic fields.

The themes of this workshop include volcanic geology, disasters and their mitigation, resources and energy in volcanic fields, mechanical behavior of volcanic rocks and soils, groundwater and environmental problems in volcanic fields, and geotechnical engineering in volcanic fields. It is our hope that many researchers/engineers involved in applied volcanic science will attend this workshop from all over the world, participate in deeply meaningful discussions, and create new global research connections.
