Research Location

Civil Engineering

Program Type



This project will carry out fundamental and applied research in the field of structural dynamics and materials engineering. The research will comprise field and laboratory experiments as well as advanced computer simulations. The final goal is to develop innovative structural systems and materials that can be used in mitigating damages caused to the structures by extreme loadings.

Additional Information

Applications are invited for researchers interested in joining a world-leading research group within the School of Civil engineering and pursuing further studies in the field of structural Engineering and materials engineering. Background in civil/structural engineering, fluid mechanics, applied mathematics, numerical methods and/or programming skills will be very useful. It is expected a strong commitment to academic research in the proposed field and the capacity to create and develop original approaches to tackle open questions. Interested researchers are encouraged to get in touch with Dr. Damith Mohotti as soon as possible.
