Postdoc in soil-structure-interaction for railway infrastructure

Chalmers University of Technology, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering is now looking for a Postdoc researcher (24 months) who will study dynamic Soil-Structure-Interaction (SSI) and its effect on design and maintenance of railway infrastructure (including but not limited to slab track). This project is a collaboration between the Concrete Structures and Geotechnics research groups and is embedded within the centre for Chalmers Railway Mechanics (CHARMEC).  Ultimately, the project will contribute to performance-based design and improved management through digital twins and monitoring. Hence the project is aimed to contribute towards more sustainable railway systems.
