Positions available on Earthquake Engineering and Structural Health Monitoring (PhD Students)
The Historical and Masonry Structures (HMS) group of the Institute for Sustainability and Innovation in Structural Engineering (ISISE), University of Minho, Portugal, plans to open two PhD student positions (duration of the contract planned for 3 years).
The positions will focus on (i) Seismic assessment of the out-of-plane behavior of masonry structures and (ii) Deep learning-based visual inspection systems for structural health monitoring.
(i) Seismic assessment of the out-of-plane behavior of masonry structures:Necessary qualifications: MSc degree in Civil Engineering or Earthquake Engineering. A strong background in structural dynamics and masonry structures with a passion for numerical modelling and code-based assessment, or similar qualifications, would be considered an asset.
(ii) Deep learning-based visual inspection systems for structural health monitoring:Necessary qualifications: MSc degree in Civil Engineering or similar. A good understanding of damage identification, artificial intelligence and computer-vision, would be considered an asset.
Students completing their MSc degree in the next months are invited to demonstrate their interest in the position.
If interested, please send your résumé with a copy of the BSc and MSc certificates to Dr. Vasco Bernardo for position (i) (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Mayank Mishra for position (ii) (email@example.com) until April 28th (23:59 Lisbon time / WEST).
