We are looking for two highly skilled candidates to join the Geohazards Group at the Institute of Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Applied Geophysics at the Faculty of Science of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic.

The ideal candidates have a track record, proportionate to their career stage, of publications, grants, scientific results demonstrating potential for independence in the topic of this call or a closely related one (e.g., thermo-hydro-mechanical modelling of geomaterials, landslides and climate change, slope-vegetation-atmosphere interaction).

 The candidates must possess outstanding skills in constitutive and numerical modelling of landslide processes at various scales and/or in advanced experimental soil mechanics, ideally with a focus on clay soils.

 The candidates are expected to show independent thinking and develop original solutions contributing to cross-scale modelling under thermo-hydro-mechanical boundary conditions. The specific research track of the successful applicants will be discussed based on skills, motivations, and the current project needs.

  • Location: Faculty of Science, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic
  • Duration of the fellowship: 12 months; renewable based on performance
  • Net salary: 1750 EUR/month (postdoctoral position)
  • Full time (40 hours/week) with flexible hours; hybrid work possible upon agreement
  • Possibility to apply for university accommodation through the Staff Welcome Centre (https://swc.cuni.cz/)
  • Deadline for applications: 15 February 2024 but applications will be reviewed as they come
  • Start date: 1 May 2024
