Postdoc in multiphysics modelling of geostructures in FEniCSx at Chalmers University of Technology

The Geotechnics Research Group (GRG) in the Division of Geology and Geotechnics primarily focuses on modelling and characterisation of complex geomaterials, such as naturals and stabilised soils. The research activities aim to bridge fundamental understanding and advanced modelling & testing capabilities with application in engineering practice. GRG has become an internationally recognised group in experimental testing and modelling at laboratory and field scale.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual to fill a post-doc position linked with a research project funded by Formas (Swedish research council), which aims is to develop a multi-physics model to assess the impact of climate change on the built environment in terms of stability and ground movements. A major component will be the development of an efficient scalable computational framework for multiphysics modelling of geostructures in FEniCSx, accounting for the spatial heterogeneity of the soil and the probabilistic nature of the environmental loading on its interfaces (atmosphere, lower and upper aquifer). In addition to the main supervisor (Prof. Minna Karstunen), the post-doc is supported by Dr Ayman Abed and Prof. Jelke Dijkstra. The project is part of a larger constellation of projects that focus on modelling the impacts of climate change and mitigation measures and liked with the activities of Digital Twin Cities Centre at Chalmers.
