Hong Kong is a densely-populated financial hub situated in a mountainous setting. This city is internationally recognised as a leader in landslide mitigation. There is no better place to carry out geohazards research. More importantly, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) is ranked 22nd globally by QS World University Rankings in 2020 and the Civil Engineering Department is among the top 20 groups in the world.
We would like to hear from you if you have a genuine interest in geohazards research and want to join our team. We are always looking for candidates with exceptional communication and interpersonal skills and strong leadership abilities.
We are seeking highly motivated individuals with a background in geotechnical engineering, geophysics, or geological engineering with a strong quantitative foundation. The successful candidate will be able to work independently, and have a keen interest to do interdisciplinary work on landslide hazard mitigation. Previous experience with experimental and/or numerical (fluid dynamics and/or solid-mechanics) modelling is an advantage. For more information on this position please contact Clarence Choi (email@example.com). Applications accepted until position is filled.
We are seeking a candidate with a PhD in geotechnical or geological engineering or geophysics. The candidate should have a strong track record in experimental and numerical modelling of landslides dynamics and steep creek hazards.
