The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) is a materials research organization in Germany. Our mission is to ensure safety in technology and chemistry. We conduct research and testing in materials science, materials engineering and chemistry to improve the safety of products and processes. At BAM we do research that matters. Our work covers a broad array of topics in the focus areas of energy, infrastructure, environment, materials, and analytical sciences. We offer an excellent work environment, located in Berlin, with state of the art research infrastructure and special laboratories.
We are looking for talented people to join us.
Your responsibilities include:
Scientific contribution to the binational research project COMET (Coupled micromechanical mod-elling for the analysis and prevention of erosion in hydraulic and offshore infrastructures) funded by the DFG research agency.

Dear All,There are still some available positions for attending LARAM School 2019, as PhD student or PhD Doctor.
As you may know the venue for this year is Lausanne (Switzerland)DEADLINE: 11 JUNE
A two-year EPSRC funded Research
Associate position is available within the Glasgow Computation Engineering
Centre at the University of Glasgow. The ambitious project aims to apply the
multiscale quasicontinuum (QC) method to granular systems using the discrete
element modelling (DEM). A granular QC method would allow fully resolved
discrete simulations in areas of interest (e.g. at localisations) but a more
efficient coarse-grained continuum simulation to be carried out away from these
areas. The Research Associate will develop an open-source granular QC method
with the aim of significantly accelerating DEM simulations for problems with
localisations and with multiphysical challenges (e.g. mechanical and thermal
coupling). You will become a member of
the Glasgow Computation Engineering Centre (www.gla.ac.uk/gcec), a research group consisting of 10 academics
with a wide range of interests in computational mechanics.
- Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in engineering, applied
mathematics or a related discipline.
- Applicants must have a strong background in the computational
modelling of granular systems.
- Applications must have a strong background in the development of
- Applicants must have experience in engineering programming
- Applicants should have excellent communication and organizational
skills and should be highly motivated.
enquiries can be made to the Glasgow Computation Engineering Centre (firstname.lastname@example.org)
is anticipated that interviews will take place in August 2019, with the
anticipated start as soon as possible thereafter.
Applications are invited for a one year full-time postdoctoral research position at the University of Pau & Pays Adour, France, on an “Experimental and numerical study of reactive transport in porous media under deep geothermal conditions”.
The project will be conducted in the framework of a collaboration between the Laboratoire de Thermique, Energétique et Procédés (LaTEP) and IFP Énergies nouvelles (IFPEN), supported by CARNOT ISIFoR and IFPEN, and aims to improve the prediction of barite precipitation under geothermal conditions. In that prospect, the approach proposed in this project will combine laboratory experiments and reactive transport modeling.
The deadline for application is June 24th 2019. More details can be found in the attached file.

The ALERT Workshop 2019 (30th Edition) will be held in Aussois from 30th September to 2nd October, 2019.
Abstract submission has been a big success with most of the sessions being already complete at the present date. Nevertheless some presentations can still be allocated in the second session: The mechanics of root-soil systems: from microscopic to macroscopic approaches. The deadline for abstract submission has been extended for this session.
Please submit your abstracts by email directly to the coordinators using the Workshop abstract form (doc). If you wish to publish your presentation after the Workshop on the ALERT website, do not forget to agree by ticking the corresponding box in the abstract form.
An abstract can also be submitted for the poster session. The abstracts of the posters will be published in a separate booklet (ISSN registered).
The deadline for the abstract submission for the workshop has been extended to May 31, 2019. For any communication about your participation to the workshops, please contact the coordinators of the workshop sessions directly.
The ALERT Poster session will be held during the ALERT Workshop in September 30 – October 2, 2019 in Aussois. Those who are interested are asked to submit their abstracts (both word/openoffice and pdf files are required) by email to the coordinators Nadia Benahmed (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Antoine Wautier (email@example.com) using the attached abstract form (Template).
TOPIC: This project will exploit state-of-the-art experimental techniques to examine the evolution of water-repellent soil hydro-mechanical behaviour on the microstructural and macrostructural scale. It is well understood that microscopic interactions between water menisci and soil particles govern the macroscopic mechanical behaviour of unsaturated soils. However, how water repellency affects those interactions is largely unknown. Successfully accounting for the effect of repellency on soil hydro-mechanical behaviour could yield significant benefits to geotechnical design.
UNI: University of Edinburgh – supervised by Dr C. Beckett (in collaboration with Heriot-Watt university among others)
FUNDING: EU-UK students will receive a monthly stipend
WHEN: We are happy to start asap.
