Applications are welcome for a 21-month postdoc position to investigate the optimisation of the monopiles installation process and to study the dynamic behaviour of soil during pile installation using the physical modelling facilities at TU Delft. The work will include design and implementation of advanced instrumentation for physical modelling studies. Test planning and data interpretation will be carried out in close collaboration with industry experts in the framework of BLUE piling project. Candidates should possess a PhD degree in Civil/Geotechnical Engineering or related areas, proven experience in geotechnical centrifuge testing, preferably including soil-structure interaction problems and dynamic loading, and excellent knowledge of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Acquaintance with offshore wind geotechnics is also appreciated (but not mandatory).

La XX International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering si terrà a Sydney (Australia) nel periodo 12-17 settembre 2021.
Scadenza per l’invio dei sommari: 30 aprile 2020.
The theme of ICSMGE 2021 is “A Geotechnical Discovery Downunder – Geotechnical Diversity Awaits You”. Discover Australia and discover the innovation that lies where practical problems meet leading theoretical developments. ICSMGE 2021 will focus on the application of theory and the discovery that comes when world-class minds are focussed on the geotechnical problems facing our world. The conference program and technical sessions reflect this emphasis on applications, and are designed to trigger collaboration, innovation and discovery from a diverse group of participants.

Assistant/Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics (tenure track) at Delft University of Technology
Applications are invited for an Assistant or Associate Professor of Experimental Soil Mechanics at Delft University of Technology (Holland). The position is proposed to improve their understanding of the fundamental mechanical behaviour of soils undergoing ageing and cyclic environmental loads, and to provide new solutions to the present and future challenges of the built environment. The focus is on developing new experimental techniques and strategies to better understand and tune the response of soils to increasingly high (time-dependent and dynamic) loadings. Emerging sensor and imaging technologies offer the opportunity to develop a new generation of experimental techniques for soil testing in the laboratory and in the field.
The closing date for applications is 15 March 2020.
