2 PhD positions are available in the Geotechnics Section of the Dept. Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. The positions are part of the MatheGram ITN funded by Horizon 2020. The work will involve advancing understanding of the effects of temperature on soil behaviour. The first PhD will be an experimental analysis of thermal effects on micromechanics of packed granular beds and will be supervised by Dr. David Taborda (email@example.com). The second PhD will consider DEM analysis of thermal effects on micromechanics of packed granular beds and will be supervised by Prof. Catherine O’Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
