JOB DESCRIPTION

PHD SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY
STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH
SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
JOONDALUP CAMPUS

About the PhD
This research project, in collaboration with the Australian Engineered Fasteners and Anchors Council (AEFAC), will investigate the use of advanced fastening systems in safety-critical applications. In particular, the project will focus on the structural performance of such fastening systems installed and/or loaded in early age concrete, where the behaviour of the substrate and hence the performance of the fastening system may be different from those of mature concrete. The research will also explore solutions to challenges identified through the use of (e.g.) nonlinear numerical modelling and statistical analysis of experimental results derived from this project. You will be supervised by a team of experts from both the School of Engineering at Edith Cowan University and AEFAC. The successful applicant will receive a scholarship of $28,420 per year for 3.5 years (all Tax Free), tuition fee sponsorship valued at $34,250 per year, and overseas health cover if you are an international student.

Contact
For further information or to apply, please contact Dr Alireza Mohyeddin ([email protected]). Applications should include a cover letter describing your interest in the field, an up-to-date CV, academic transcripts, and relevant supporting documents of prior research (e.g., copy of your best publication).

Key requirements
The successful applicant must possess either a Bachelor with First or Upper Second class Honours, or a Master by Research Degree, and have strong competencies in finite element analysis, concrete material and fracture mechanics.

Closing date
Applications should be received by SUNDAY 2 August 2020 11.30pm AWST.

Please Note: Applications are open to both Australian and International candidates. Due to COVID-19 travel bans, preference will be given to candidates who are currently in Western Australia and can commence in 2020.
