Summary of the role
We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher, based at the University of Exeter, as part of the Vibration Engineering Section, to carry out research on full-scale monitoring of civil infrastructure as part of the UKRI-funded ROSEHIPS program grant (EP/W005816/1).
You will work in a sub-team of researchers at University of Exeter (James Brownjohn, Ki Koo and Evangelos Papatheou) and linking with Queen’s University, Belfast (David Hester) focused on practical aspects of population-based structural health monitoring, including instrumentation, field measurement and modal testing. The researcher will need to be able quickly to learn new systems, be able to drive all aspects of fieldwork and carry out hands-on experimental ativities in outdoor field conditions.
The researcher will need to be able quickly to learn new technologies such as civionics, cloud storage and cloud computing platforms, which are the key elements of the future SHM systems supporting Population Based SHM. The researcher will need to drive all aspects of fieldwork and carry out hands-on experimental activities in outdoor field conditions. The researcher will need to develop data processing software applications using Python.
