Full-time, fixed-term for 36 months
Applications are welcomed for a Research Assistant/Fellow in the area of steel structures in severe loading conditions. The effective candidate will work as part of the EPSRC-funded RESIST job– RESIlient Buildings using STainless steel.
The project is an interesting chance to work at Brunel on a brand-new ₤ 1.8 m, 3-year, research job. The project aims to bring a step-change in the durability of brand-new and fixed up steel structures with the strategic use of highly ductile aspects in key locations and holistic system-level style. It is a major collaborative project including 4 UK universities (Brunel, Imperial College London, University of Southampton and the University of Birmingham) in addition to a large number of industrial partners.
The Research Fellow based at Brunel will join a vibrant research study group in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. They will be accountable for planning and carrying out a speculative project, establishing innovative mathematical designs, producing design assistance, and distributing the outcomes. They will work carefully with PhD/MSc trainees at Brunel as well as the Research Associates and Investigators at the other Universities, and commercial collaborators.
Applications are welcomed from highly motivated people who have, or are close to completion of, a PhD in Structural Engineering. Applicants with experience of working with limited component analysis (e.g. ABAQUS), performing advanced numerical analysis of steel structures, studying extreme loading situations (e.g. fire) or working in the laboratory, will be particularly welcome. The successful prospect will be capable of working on original research in an independent manner, will have a mutual understanding of the context and background of this project, will be experienced at releasing the outcomes of their research, and will be capable of taking initiative in the planning of research. As this is a significant collaborative project, dealing with other researchers, universities, commercial partners and code committees, strong communication/interpersonal skills and a capability to work separately are important.
