We are looking for a competent Research Assistant (PhD Candidate) for our newly funded DFG project. The objective of the project is to evaluate the application of 3D printing in geomechanics with ultimate goal of understanding the mechanical and deformational characteristics of a rock mass with complex non-persistent discontinuities (DFNs). The research involves systematic laboratory testing on printed samples as well as subsequent calibration/verification using advanced numerical modelling. The funding allows us to hire a PhD student. The duration of the project is three years, starting in September 2021.
Application deadline: April 30th, 2021
