We will work on combining cutting-edge structural sensing technologies (e.g., distributed fiber optic sensing, UAV-based infrastructure sensing) with simulation or data-driven models to give condition assessment and diagnostics of civil infrastructure. We provide the opportunity to collaborate with internationally leading universities. Specific research interests include:
• Computational mechanics / Numerical modeling
• Uncertainty quantification / Machine learning (collaborator: Prof. Jize Zhang)
• Large scale testing
Postdocs: You have or will soon obtain PhD in civil / mechanical engineering. At least one publication in top engineering journals is required. You have the ability to develop and realize a research idea independently. Research experience relevant to one of the aforementioned research interests is preferred, but not mandatory.
Research Assistants: You have a Master’s / Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or related fields. A strong background in mechanics and mathematics is required. You have documented experience in either numerical modelling or experimental testing. You are proficient in spoken and written English.
Postdoc: HKD$ 32’000 monthly with HKUST benefits and conference travel allowance.
Research Assistant: HKD$ 21’000 for applicants with Master’s degree.
The preferred starting time is August/September 2023. The initial duration is 2 years. Please send your motivation letter, CV, and all university records as a single pdf, with the title “Postdoc/RA application + Name + Your Research Interest” to Prof. Shenghan Zhang for consideration (firstname.lastname@example.org). The positions are open until filled.
