- Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA
- The purpose of this research project is to investigate chemical and mechanical processes in porous media subjected to reactive transport. The project will employ small scale flow experiments, X-ray microtomographic imaging, carbonate geochemistry, and classical geomechanical deformation tests to quantify the simultaneous evolution of chemical and structural attributes (e.g., pore size, particle size, mineral constituents, etc.) during reactive flow and/or loading. The experimental activities will be conducted at the Northwestern University and at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), located at the Argonne National Laboratory. The main goal of the project is to relate temporal and spatial changes in microstructural attributes to chemical and physical macroscopic quantities (e.g., permeability, stiffness, strength, precipitation/dissolution etc.).

- Chalmers University, Gothenburg, Sweden
- The Division of GeoEngineering at Chalmers is looking for a dynamic and talented individual for the position of Marie Curie Fellow (Experienced Researcher) to work on constitutive model development, verification and validation, with focus on modelling rate-dependent behaviour of soft natural soils. The post requires an undergraduate degree in Engineering, and a PhD degree (or at least 4 years of full time research experience) in computational mechanics or geotechnics or a similar topic. For more details see this announcement.
