PhD position in computational geomechanics and probabilistic methods at University of Cincinnati

Dr. Lei Wang’s research group at the University of Cincinnati (UC) is seeking two high-motivated and talented PhD students to be appointed as Graduate Assistants to conduct geotechnical engineering research in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management, beginning January 2023 or August 2023. 


The PhD students will conduct research on the topic of probabilistic assessment and numerical modeling of geotechnical infrastructure in the face of multiple hazards, machine learning, and geophysical characterization in geotechnical engineering. Applicants must have a B.S. degree and a master’s degree in civil, geotechnical, or geological engineering or engineering mechanics. Preference will give to students with publication record in geotechnical engineering. Ideal candidates should have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: programing using Python and/or MATLAB, numerical modeling and simulation (DEM, MPM), geophysical characterization, machine learning, and probabilistic methods.


Interested individuals are encouraged to send their current CV to Dr. Lei Wang at Please put “Prospective PhD student in geotechnical engineering” in the subject line. The review process will continue until the position is filled. The assistantship includes generous financial support that will cover tuition and living expenses for the qualified candidate.


The University of Cincinnati is a culturally diverse urban campus and has the distinction of being recognized as a Research 1 institution (top tier research intensive university) in the US.  Dr. Wang is an experienced researcher with over 70 journal and conference publications in geotechnical engineering and served as PI/Co-PI from various federal agencies such as National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), US Geological Survey (USGS) etc.
