PhD candidateship - Maurice Franses Memorial Scholarship, - Ref:1817629
This is a unique opportunity for a talented and deserving prospective PhD candidate to engage in scholar research at postgraduate level in the field of Structural Engineering. The Amar-Franses and Foster-Jenkins Trust has gifted the Structures Section in the Department of Civil Environmental and Geomatic Engineering with the Maurice Franses Memorial Scholarship for excellence in structural engineering. The studentship, awarded on the basis of excellence and need is 4 years in duration and consists of fees equivalent to the standard postgraduate UK/EU rate (2019/20: £5210) plus a maintenance stipend (2019/20: £17,009 tax free) for full-time study.
The theme of the studentship is broad and relates to all aspects of structural engineering. Themes that are of topical interest to the Structures Group within the Department are: performance design and assessment of structures exposed to extreme loading, extending the life of structures exposed to increasing environmental loading, monitoring and sensing for structures, use of sustainable and novel materials and technologies for the built environment and infrastructure, conservation and preservation of heritage structures.
Interested candidates should demonstrate their interest for this field of research by submitting their own project outline. This should include motivation and background, aims and objectives, proposed methodology and tasks with expected outcome. The submission should not exceed 2000 words.
The project will be co-supervised by members of the Structures Group. A 3-month placement of the student at RSM is expected during the project.
Candidates should have a strong undergraduate track record with 2:1 or 1st Class degree (and preferably a master’s degree) in Civil/Structural Engineering combined with a strong modelling and programming skills (Matlab or Python). Selection will be based on CV, proposal, and technical interview.
Applicants should send a covering letter, proposal and CV to d.dayala [at] ucl[.]ac[.]uk .
