Delft University of Technology is seeking candidates for a new Assistant or Associate Professor of Geotechnical Field Testing and Monitoring.
The position is proposed to improve our understanding of the fundamental mechanical behaviour of geotechnical structures undergoing ageing and cyclic loads, and to provide new solutions to the present and future challenges of the built environment, with an emphasis on hydraulic structures such as locks, quay walls, retaining structures and dams. The aim is to develop new monitoring and analysis strategies to better assess and design geotechnical structures and infrastructure subjected to increasing anthropogenic and environmental (e.g. wind, wave, hydraulic, thermal, seismic) loadings, and to study the impact of soil-fluid-structure interaction processes. Emerging sensor and imaging technologies, as well as advanced data analysis, offer the opportunity to develop a new generation of experimental techniques for geotechnical testing in the field.

Deadline for applications: 11 April 2022.
