We are looking for highly motivated and talented individuals (3-5 appointments) to fill PhD student positions linked with research projects funded by Formas (Swedish research council), Trafikverket and BeFo (Rock Engineering Research foundation). The geotechnical PhD projects relate to the stability of slopes and embankments, accounting for aging and creep effects, fluctuating rainfall and temperature, as well as soil-structure interaction. The hydrogeological PhD project relates to geological and hydrogeological investigation, conceptualisation and modelling in the urban environment, with focus on pressure and flow (requirements) and technical design.
Geotechnical Engineering Personal tools
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 3-5 doctoral students to join its activities. EG2 has unique 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 the application of that to 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.
