The School of Computing and Engineering of the UWL is highly engaged in research. We are always looking for talented, qualified research students across a broad range of subject areas. We offer excellent facilities such as the concrete testing lab, the soil and geotechnics lab, two electronics labs, an architecture studio and dedicated computing labs.

The role

The School of Computing and Engineering of the University of West London is seeking to recruit a part-time (0.6 FTE) Research Assistant for the funded research project “Strengthening of Existing Masonry Structures by Using Advanced and Sustainable Materials”. This project will focus on developing novel and sustainable materials and the strengthening of masonry structures.

The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting experimental work, developing and assessing novel and sustainable materials, such as Ultra High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete, and applying these materials for the strengthening of masonry structures.

The candidate will contribute to research papers for submission to academic journals and presentations at international conferences.

The person

Candidates should hold an MSc or be near completion (or hold) of a PhD in the area of Structural Engineering and/or Construction Materials. Equivalent professional experience will also be considered. Experience in experimental work and numerical modelling will be an advantage. The successful candidate must be self-motivated, have critical thinking skills, team working skills, but also to have the ability to work independently.
