PhD position at the Politecnico di Torino: a multi-scale modeling strategy for debris-flow

A PhD scholarship is available at Politecnico di Torino, Italy, under the guidance of Prof. Marina Pirulli. The project aims at developing a multi-scale modeling strategy for debris-flow through the integration of 2D and 3D numerical approaches. The scholarship has a length of 36 months and prescribes an 18-month mobility period at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. More information in the attached document.


The ideal candidate has a strong background in hydraulic or geotechnical engineering, especially in constitutive and numerical modeling. Basics of continuum mechanics are required. A strong interest in computational methods and any previous experience of C++ and/or Fortran is highly appreciated.In order to take part to the selection procedures, applicants are required to hold before 31/10/2018:

  •  A master degree in environmental/civil engineering or a related field (for Italian candidates minimum graduation mark is 100/110). For international applicants, a GRE general test certificate must be held prior to applying.
