The University of Strathclyde and the University of Bristol are organising the 7th International Symposium on Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials, to be held in Glasgow on 26th – 28th June 2019. This is a prestigious conference series started in 1994 organised under the auspices of the Technical Committee TC101 ‘Laboratory Stress Strain Strength Testing of Geomaterials’ of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE).
Dual PhD degree at Heriot-Watt and Ghent Universities in Fluid Transport in Fractures of Caprocks for CO2 Storage. More information in the website. Deadline is 6th April.
We are pleased to announce the opening in September 2018 of two new international master courses (M2) entitled *Mechanics and Physics in Porous Media* and *Computations in Civil and Coastal Engineering.* Both courses are located in our French Basque Coast Campus in Anglet.
Special scholarships are currently available !
Scholarship procedure, course description and ECTS details are available in the website
A PhD scholarship is available at Pitecnico 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.
The University of Montpellier announces a PhD position in Rheology of granular mixtures composed of hard/soft grains. More information in the attached document (in French)
The entire life cycle of a concrete member will be studied using 3D X-ray velocimetry. This project will investigate the influence of mixing and pouring on the load carrying capacity of fibre reinforced concrete composites using state of the art dynamic X-ray analysis to track fibre orientation and distribution within members over time. This information will be used to advance constitutive models of the specimens, and the link between specimen behaviour and member behaviour will be made by upscaling knowledge of the rheological behaviour during pouring.

A PhD position is available in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) on the “Multi-Physical Modelling in Cold Climate Engineering”. The area of research is Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical modelling of soil behavior during freezing and thawing processes.
Please see the advertisement for further details.
Applications are possible until 21th of March 2018.
The department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, announces the job opening for a professorship “Geotechnics: Foundation Engineering and Soil Mechanics” (see attached file).
For the open position, we are looking for candidatures of scientists who have their focus on fundamental research in soil mechanics, on experimental research using the existing extensive laboratory facilities and on topics of environmental research in geotechnics.
International applications of persons who currently do not speak German are very welcome, assuming there is a willingness to learn the language and lecture in German after a period of two years.
Applications are possible until 8th of April 2018.
