SFI Frontiers for the Future Programme for excellent independent researchers

Geotechnical / Mechanical Engineering at University College Cork

A PhD position on “Geotechnical big data monitoring and assessment tools for evaluating whole-life performance of underground infrastructure” is now open at University College Cork.

This project will develop and improve the aforementioned two novel tools (distributed fibre optic sensing, drone, robotics and image-based defect assessment) for geo-infrastructure monitoring in collaboration with Cambridge University, UC Berkeley, Tyndall and industrial partners. The developed novel monitoring tools will be applied to 2-4 ageing & prospective underground infrastructures in a large scale to gather more comprehensive monitoring big data than previously available at lower cost.
