1 PhD positions – 1.5 year contract
Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher on H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018 project on Durable, Reliable and Sustainable Structures with Alkali-Activated Materials
We have 1 PhD vacancy at the Department of Materials, Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zagreb, Croatia, for duration of 1.5 years on the topic of combined environmental actions (chlorides, carbonation, freezing) of alkali-activated materials.
Position is within the research project “DuRSAAM - PhD Training Network on Durable, Reliable and Sustainable Structures with Alkali-Activated Materials”, funded by MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE ACTIONS Innovative Training Network of EU HORIZON 2020 Programme.
DuRSAAM is a collaborative PhD framework creating a critical mass of experts skilled in innovative alkali-activated material (AAM) concrete, as a key enabling technology for a sustainable and resilient built environment. The consortium brings together 7 academic and 15 non-academic partners, to excel in the scientific development and exploitation of AAM concrete, advancing design, modelling and practice beyond the state-of-the-art. The network will deliver world-leading training in this multidisciplinary field through 13 PhDs in interrelated aspects of AAM concrete, fibre reinforced high-performance concrete, and textile-reinforced mortar, as well as sustainability assessment.
PhD topic “ Combined environmental actions“
The aim is to simulate the degradation process in AAMs under combined effect of at least two environmental or mechanical actions. The simulations and experiments will consider the effect of shrinkage, freeze-thaw, carbonation and chloride transport separately and in a coupled manner, together with mechanical loading.
PhD candidates applying for these positions must (at the time of recruitment) be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have a doctoral degree. Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Croatia for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date (and not have carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.).
To apply, please send
- curriculum vitae
- motivation letter
- copies of your degree and your transcripts (courses and grades)
- a one-page summary of your MSc thesis,
- two recommendation letters (or alternatively the names and email addresses of two references).
Applicants must meet the requirements laid down in the Law on Scientific Activity and Higher Education (Official Gazette 123/03, 198/03, 105/04, 174/04, 2/07 - Decision and USRH Decisions, 46/07, 45/09, 63/11, 94/13, 139/13 and 101/14 - USRH Decision and Decisions, 60/15 - USRH Decision and 131/17).
