  • Detailed FE modelling of the new innovative strengthening system
  • Planning of appropriate middle- and large-scale experimental set-ups for mechanical characterization of the proposed strengthening system
  • Performance of experiments in the construction laboratory at Empa and evaluation of results, application of innovative measuring systems like digital image correlation (DIC) measurements and optical fibres
  • Development of accompanying analytical models for mechanical behaviour of the proposed strengthening system
  • Application and evaluation of the strengthening system on a real bridge structure within a pilot project
  • Independent processing of the research including communication with laboratory personal, supervisors and project partners
  • Project documentation (internal) and scientific publication (external)
  • Supervision of students in the context of bachelor and master theses will be possible

Your profile
  • Engineering university degree (Master) in civil engineering with specialization in structural engineering

  • Team worker, able to collaborate with lab personal as well as with industry partners on the daily basis
  • Experience in the engineering practice (design and / or execution of engineering structures, preferably bridges) is of advantage
  • Excellent communication and writing skills in English are mandatory, good German language skills are desirable
 
We offer
  • Independent work with development opportunities in a future-oriented subject area with high innovation potential
  • Modern laboratory with state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment at Empa in Dübendorf as well as at OST in Rapperswil
