We seek a qualified and motivated individual with enthusiastic attitude towards high-quality research to work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the department of Civil Engineering. The main research area is the laboratory testing of geotechnical engineering materials. Our speciality is the testing of soft, anisotropic clays as well as the testing of stabilized soils. We have much expertise on these areas, but we want to strengthen it by building a bigger research group, where you would be one of the key member. We are also applying for an additional financing to ensure long-term research. Besides laboratory testing, our group consists of specialists on numerical modelling and constitutive modelling of soils, which opens you the possibility to develop constitutive models based on your experimental data. The position is for a period of 2 years, with a mid-term review, and it should start around December 2018. The position is intended for full-time work.

The main aim of this project is to develop a robust computational framework for investigating the hydro-chemo-mechanical aspect of concrete carbonation at meso-scale.
1-year post-doctoral position to start in January 2019, on
“Multi-technique characterization of thin clay films during their
creep”. The project is in partnership between Laboratoire Navier,
laboratory Phenix (Sorbonne Université) and Synchrotron SOLEIL. Applications are expected by 1 September 2018. See the attachment for more information.
A PhD position in modeling of submerged slopes 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/nathaz_phd_position.html
TITLE: The hydraulic control of the rhizosphere on rainfall-induced fast-moving shallow landslides
DURATION: 3 years
START DATE: 01/10/2018 (later date can be negotiated)
ELIGIBILITY: Applications from Home/Rest of UK/EU applicants & First Class Honours (or equivalent)
WHERE: Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland

CONTACT: Alessandro Tarantino firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates are sought for a PhD position in the field of experimental investigation aimed at improving phenomenological understanding of the chemistry of delayed ettringite formation (DEF) and of its effect on mineralogical, structural and mechanical properties of cemented waste forms. This is set in the context of cement-waste solidification/stabilization studies for radioactive waste disposal application. This is a joint PhD programme by SCK•CEN and ONDRAF/NIRAS in collaboration with Gent University, Belgium, under the mentorship of Prof. Nele De Belie. The potential candidates should hold a master’s degree preferably in material science (good knowledge of chemistry) or civil/structural or mechanical engineering and should preferably have an exposure to chemistry and mechanics. The position is open for European as well as international candidates (except restricted nationalities, which can be found in the SCK•CEN academy portal). An initial project proposal is available in the link below.
The *deadline* for receipt of application is *August 31, 2018*.
Thesis supervised by Jean Sulem, Jean-Claude Dupla and Jean Canou.
