The Early Stage Researchers internships program aims to offer a unique opportunity to researchers to gain a significant range of experiences and valuable new skills by a stay in the GEOLAB facilities during their experiment programs (Transnational Access Projects (TA)). These internships will also provide unique networking opportunities and broaden the number of ESRs who can participate in GEOLAB activities and learn from the experience within the community and will provide a better understanding of the ins and outs of the GEOLAB installations throughout Europe.

In the last round of GEOLAB’s Early Stage Researcher Internship Program held in 2022, 6 candidates carried out placements in a number of GEOLAB facilities including TU Delft’s Geotechnical Centrifuge, University of Cambridge’s Schofield Centre, Deltares’ Model Container and NGI’s Tiller GEOTEST Site.
The candidates’ research projects ranged from subjects such as measuring vertical and horizontal stresses in model piles to modelling offshore wind turbine monopiles in clay subjected to cyclic lateral loading. The candidates came from all different corners of Europe to carry out their two week placement at their chosen facilities and have given incredibly positive feedback as to their experiences and how it will benefit them going forward in their career.
To find out more about the candidates’ feedback, you can register through GEOLAB’s Knowledge Platform here and you can read about their research projects in great detail via the link below
Congratulations to all the candidates involved!
