PhD Position in Geotechnical Engineering: Static Liquefaction in Tailings Dams within Cold Regions by Material Point Method Analysis

The GeoEngineering Centre at Queen’s-RMC is delighted to announce a doctoral research position concentrating on the Material Point Method (MPM) analysis and Static Liquefaction in tailings dams situated in cold regions.

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a solid foundation in numerical modeling and programming in Fortran and C++. Experience with open-source software and a thorough understanding of the thermomechanical behavior of soil are prerequisites for this position.

Essential Qualifications:
– Expertise in numerical modeling, particularly in geotechnical engineering
– Proficiency in programming languages, specifically Fortran and C++, with an emphasis on computational mechanics
– Experience with open-source software, particularly in the context of geotechnical engineering
– In-depth understanding of soil thermomechanics, with a focus on the behavior of soil under varying temperature conditions

The selected candidate will have the opportunity to be mentored by Dr. Beddoe and Dr. Yaseri. This position offers an exceptional chance to contribute to a pioneering field of research within a dynamic and collaborative team environment.
Application Procedure: Candidates interested in this position are requested to forward their curriculum vitae and a cover letter detailing their relevant experience and interest in the position to
