Postdoc positions (2) available
deadline for applying: January 31, 2024

Title of research: Structural testing and analysis of brick masonry retrofitted with various low-cost and carbon-conscious design options

Starting date: March/April 2024 or soon thereafter

Duration: minimum 1 year. Truly exceptional candidates will be also considered for slightly shorter periods. Possibility of extending to max 2 years since starting date base on performance evaluation/funds availability.

Description of research: our group seeks to develop effective and sustainable design strategies to enable the low-cost renovation, reuse and expansion of existing buildings typical of Eastern Canada. Primary objective is to conduct comparative structural tests and numerical analyses scrutinizing various option for low-cost and carbon-conscious. This project will involve collaborations with Carleton University, University of Toronto, UC Berkeley.

Required qualifications: The successful candidate must have a PhD degree in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Architecture, or in the process of getting one very soon.
