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.
A PhD position is available at the University of Adelaide in Australia on the “Failure Mechanism and true Post-peak Response of Rocks”.
Please see the advertisment for further details.
