The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering works with every aspect of construction in the community – houses to live in, roads to travel on, and water to drink – from planning to maintenance, taking into account the environment, energy and economics.
The Department has around 170 employees, divided between seven research divisions and an administrative team, and is based at the Johanneberg Campus. When it comes to research and education, our Department is at the forefront, and through our work, we contribute to a sustainable built environment.
Information about the research
The research group on Engineering Geology and Geotechnics (EG2), lead by Prof. Minna Karstunen, in the Division of Geology and Geotechnics is now looking for a PostDoc to join its activities. EG2 has unique prototyping and laboratory facilities to study the hydromechanical response of geomaterials in climate-controlled conditions, and computational facilities incorporating the latest software developments for computational work. The main research focus is on modelling and characterisation of soils and rocks, and their application of that in engineering practice. EG2 has the ambition to become an internationally leading group that combines the state-of-the-art in experimental testing and modelling at laboratory and field scale.
We are looking for a highly motivated and talented individual to fill a PostDoc position (1+1 year) in Experimental Geomechanics funded by the Swedish Research Council Formas. The project involves the development of a new experimental apparatus/approach to study the evolving dynamic soil properties as function of arbitrary (cyclic) stress histories in soft sensitive clays. The research will be complementary to an existing project with a PhD and a part-time senior researcher that are focsed on numerical modelling.
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. In addition to research the applicants are also expected to contribute to the education at undergraduate or MSc level and/or other, in this case experimental, activities within the Division and EG2 (up to 20% of their time).
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).
To to qualify as a PostDoc researcher, you must have a PhD degree from an institute of higher education in Civil Engineering or another relevant topic (or be about to finish in spring 2017). The degree should generally not be older than three years. You need to be independent and numerate, and have proficiency in programming (e.g. Python, C, Labview). The ablity to process large amounts of data in an automated manner or experience with instrument control is an advantage. The applicants are expected to be fluent in English (both verbal and written communication) in order to work efficiently in a mainly English speaking research environment.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
