A Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) position is available at the University of Bath (UK) from November 2018 to December 2020. The PDRA will work with researchers from five UK universities and the British Geological Survey on the EPSRC-funded ACHILLES Project.
ACHILLES will examine how ‘long linear infrastructure assets’, such as road and railway slopes, pipeline bedding and flood protection structures, can be better maintained and monitored to make them more resilient for the future.
The role of the applicant will be to identify age and climate-driven deterioration mechanisms observed in field and laboratory experiments. They will then liaise closely with infrastructure asset owners to provide evidence of these processes at the full scale.
Please contact Dr Kevin Briggs (email@example.com) in the first instance.
