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) for full-time study (tax free).
We offer a studentship in Structural Engineering with focus on: 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. Prospective candidates should demonstrate their interest for this research topics 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.
Applicants should send a covering letter, proposal and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful applicant will then have to apply online to UCL by submitting the PhD application form, available from https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/research-degrees/civil-environmental-geomatic-engineering-mphil-phd and clicking on the Apply now button. Please name Prof Dina D’Ayala as the proposed supervisor.
