The Priority Research Centre for Geotechnical and Materials Modelling develops new models and innovative computational methods for predicting the behaviour of geomaterials, metals and composites. Advanced computational methods, coupled with laboratory and field testing are key tools in this pursuit.
A vacancy exists for a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Geotechnical Engineering to provide high level research support to the ARC Discovery Project entitled “Dynamic soil-structure interaction”.
About the role
You will be responsible for the development and application of advanced numerical methods, particularly finite element codes, suitable for the solving problems in dynamics soil-structure interaction.
To be successful you will have:
  • A PhD in Geotechnical Engineering or computational geomechanics
  • Extensive experience in the development and application of numerical methods in geomechanics, including the non-linear, time-dependent finite element methods
  • Effective communication, organisational and project management skills
