Applications are welcome for a 1.5-year postdoc position (with extension opportunities) to investigate the cyclic behaviour of a geomembrane energy storage system. The successful candidate will investigate the cyclic behaviour of energy storage technology recently developed in Denmark.
The work will include the design and implementation of advanced instrumentation and modelling for the energy storage system. Together in a team, a small scale field demonstration model has to be designed, and the life-cycle behaviour studied.
Candidates should possess a PhD degree in Civil/Geotechnical Engineering or related areas, proven experience in numerical modelling, preferably including soil-structure interaction problems and cyclic loading, and excellent knowledge of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Acquaintance with the finite element software ABAQUS® is appreciated (but not mandatory). A more detailed description of the project can be found in the attached pdf.
The project will be conducted in a team with Professor Lars Vabbersgaard Andersen, Professor (Docent) Kenny Kataoka Sørensen and Assistant Professor Hans Henning Stutz. For more information about this vacancy, please contact Hans Henning Stutz (Main supervisor) firstname.lastname@example.org
The positions will be available until they are filled.
