The EPFL School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) of Geotechnical & Geosystems Engineering in the Institute of Civil Engineering.
Topics of interest cover fundamental research in mechanics of geomaterials and applications to sustainable design of geosystems and geotechnical structures. The use and development of novel experimental and/or theoretical methods is expected to advance understanding of the behaviour of soil-structure interactions, granular systems as well as vulnerability assessment of slope instabilities, among others.
The successful candidate will have a strong research background in Geotechnical Engineering and Soil Mechanics as well as the potential to develop an innovative and internationally recognized research program leading to an outstanding record of scientific accomplishments.
EPFL, with its main campus located in Lausanne, on the shores of Lake Geneva, is a dynamically growing and well-funded institution fostering excellence and diversity. It is well equipped with experimental and computational infrastructure and offers a fertile environment for research collaboration between various disciplines. The EPFL environment is multilingual and multicultural, with English serving as a common interface. EPFL offers significant start-up resources and internationally competitive salaries and benefits, as well as excellent experimental and computational facilities.
