Beautiful Landscape
Welcome to RMGE Research Group at University of Glasgow

We focus on rock mechanics & geomechanics research for sustainable infrastructure and earth resources
Our research combines an array of approaches, including laboratory and field experiments, computational modeling, and analytical solutions, to understand the mechanical behavior of rocks and fractures under complex geoenvironmental (e.g., complex stresses, high temperature, high pressure) and anthropogenic conditions (e.g., hydro-fracturing, human excavation). We recently put some emphasis on the application of machine learning in geosciences and geotechnics, as well as on the analysis of the coupled thermal–hydrological–mechanical–chemical (THMC) processes in fractured rocks, with implications for underground energy storage, nuclear waste disposal, and geothermal energy extraction.

  • For PhD Students 
We welcome qualified PhD applicants who are interested in our research areas to join our group. Please contact us via email before Online application. Note that most positions are only open to UK home students. For international students, please mention your funding sources when emailing us. 

NEW PhD Projects (start in Oct 2023): 

1. Spatiotemporal Evolution of Excavation-Disturbed Zones in Fractured Geological/Rock Media Link

2. Sustainable Rock Reinforcement for Green Infrastructure Link

  • For Postdoc and Visiting Scholars
We are also keen on research collaborations (e.g., applications for research projects/grants, Marie Curie FellowshipNewton Postdoc Fellowship, etc.) - please contact us if you are interested.
NEW Postdoc position (start in Feb 2023): 
We are looking for one postdoc (36 months) to work in leading roles for the INFORM project, funded by EPSRC. [As an EPSRC-funded project, we can support a Global Talent Visa for the successful candidate (if needed), who will be eligible for UK permanent residence (英国绿卡) after 36 months of working on the project].
