Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship-program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor. The fellowship aims at external international scientists who are currently conducting research abroad. Applicants must have completed their PhD within the last seven years (eg. 2016 or later). The fellowship aims at authors (co-authors) of three or more publications in a journal with IF.
Current methods used to design and assess civil engineering structures lead to their unbalanced reliability and often conservative approaches compromise the principles of sustainability in construction. This is why it is important to systematically develop the methods of probabilistic reliability assessment and optimisation that make it possible to adequately describe uncertainties in structural resistance and load effects. Adequate treatment of uncertainty is particularly important when assessing reliability of structures from novel materials such as ultra-high-performance concrete or 3D-printed materials. Further, societally acceptable risk criteria need to be updated to account for the sustainability principles.
- Research Field
- Education Level
- PhD or equivalent
A researcher experienced in the field of reliability and risk assessment of civil engineering structures (e.g. applications of the partial factor method; probabilistic modelling of material and geometrical properties, load effects, model uncertainties, system behaviour). Having good knowledge of English, communicative. Keen to be involved in both fundamental and applied research projects, willing to disseminate results through scientific publications and participation at conferences.
A candidate’s experience should match with one or more research topics developed in the Klokner Institute and mainly in the Department of Structural Reliability – see https://www.klok.cvut.cz/en/about-the-institute/departments-of-the-institute/department-of-structural-reliability/
