A PhD position on the hydromechanical behaviour of argillite-based sealing materials is now open at Université de Lorraine (France).
PhD works will be of experimental and numerical nature, relying on state-of-the art laboratory equipment and numerical modelling resources of LEMTA. The work will also benefit of cooperation with ANDRA and other institutions. The development of in-situ experimentation at Bure underground laboratory is also an objective of the PhD work.
Candidates must own, at the time of the start of the PhD, a Master Degree in Civil, Geotechnical or Geological engineering, and have a strong interest in Mechanics of Geomaterials.
Knowledge of the French language is not mandatory. The PhD thesis can be written in English.
Starting date: October or November 2022 for a total duration of three years
How to apply?
Send by e-mail before 1 July 2022 a CV (2 pages max), if available a copy of the Master thesis, any relevant publication, full certified transcripts, and the name of one referee to both supervisors: Prof. Olivier Cuisinier (Olivier.Cuisinier@univ-lorraine.fr) and Prof. Farimah Masrouri (Farimah.Masrouri@univ-lorraine.fr).
