3 MSc (by research) positions available at Abertay University and University of Dundee

Centre of Tay-GENE (Tayside Centre for Geotechnical Engineering in Natural Environments), a joint initiative between Abertay University (AU) and University of Dundee (UoD), is currently looking for three 12-month MSc (by research) positions to study the negative impacts caused by climate change on managed non-urban land, particularly for sloping ground, and to develop novel adaption strategies. Each position provides a stipend of £14,057 and tuition fees paid up to £4,036 to fully cover the tuition fees for students for Home/EU applicants.

Project 1 (Hosted at AU): Utilising crushed dolerite columns to stabilise unstable substrates using microbial induced calcite precipitation (MICP): coupling ground improvement and climate mitigation – laboratory approach

Project 2 (Hosted at AU):: Utilising crushed dolerite columns to stabilise unstable substrates using microbial induced calcite precipitation (MICP): coupling ground improvement and climate mitigation – numerical modelling approach

Project 3 (Hosted at UoD): Centrifuge modelling of natural geotechnical systems

Extension of the deadline for the ALERT OZ course 2016

The deadline for the registration to the ALERT OZ course 2016 will be extended to 10th of August 2016.

The 8th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz Course (ALERT Summerschool) on “Geomechanics of landslides” will be held at the University of Salerno from the 5th to the 9th of September 2016. This year, the OZ course will be jointly held with the LARAM school (LAndslide Risk Assessment and Mitigation).

Information on the OZ course can be found on the LARAM website. Please use the registration form.
