Two new PhD positions in numerical modelling in geomechanics are open at Charles University.
Starting date October 2018, supervisor D. Mašín, topics:
“Hypoplastic model for unsaturated expansive clays used in simulations of bentonite homogenization for nuclear waste repositories”
“Hypoplastic modelling of deformation and stability of internal landfill of open cast coal mine Bílina”

Irstea and the international research network GdRI GeoMech invite you to participate in the 2nd Yet Another Discrete Element Workshop — Discrete-based modeling of multi-scale coupled problems to be held in Aix-en-Provence (France) on April 26-27, 2018.
This international workshop will discuss DEM or DEM-based modeling approaches in geomechanics, and is free of registration fees.
Abstract submission and registration are currently open, please see the workshop website.
A PhD position in OpenFoam modelling of snow avalanches is available at the Division of Geotechnical and Tunnel Engineering at the University of Innsbruck. Further information can be found at: https://www.uibk.ac.at/geotechnik/bdsa_.html
The presentations (that have been provided to the ALERT bureau) of the ALERT Workshop 2017 and the ALERT Doctoral School 2017 are now available online.
The accompanying book of the Doctoral School can be downloaded here.
The Ioannis Vardoulakis PhD Prize 2017 was granted to Anne-Catherine Dieudonné from Université de Liège (Belgium) and to Xiusong Shi from Technische Universität Dresden (Germany). The award ceremony and the presentation of the theses took place during the workshop in Aussois this year.
As every year, information on the chosen PhD(‘s) thesis/theses can be found on the corresponding website.
A PhD position in Soil Hydrology related to Shallow Landslides is available at the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL.

The last date for electronic submission of one-page abstracts for the forthcoming ComGeo IV has been extended to November 20, 2017. Abstracts in the MS Word (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) formats should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
ComGeo series of Symposia is a sequel to the long running Numerical Models in geomechanics (NUMOG) and aims to report and discuss latest developments in Computational Geomechanics. We have already received contributions from a number of prominent researchers including most of the members of the Scientific Committee. For more detailed information, please visit the ComGeo IV website at http://www.ic2e.org/comgeo-iv/
A Postdoctoral Position in Numerical Simulations of Landslides with the Material Point Method is available at the Aalto University.
