The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Division of Geology and Geotechnics at Chalmers is looking for an Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering who is passionate about pushing the state-of-the-art of modelling coupled processes (thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical) into geotechnical engineering applications. You will join a diverse gender-balanced research group with ambition to become internationally leading in Geotechnical Engineering with focus on natural geomaterials.
As Associate Professor or Senior Lecturer, you will contribute to teaching and development of the educational portfolio both at undergraduate and Masters levels, as well as providing education as part of Continuous Professional Development to the industry. In parallel, you will conduct your brand of research independently. In particular, we would like you to lead the development of research areas related to coupled processes in porous media, encountered in geo-structures, such as road, railway and flood embankments, dams, and tunnels. We also expect you to actively contribute to our core research in soft soil engineering. An important part of the position is to engage with industry, initiating collaborations to enable innovative solutions for major stakeholders.
The position is a permanent Faculty position, partly funded by external research projects.
