|Recruitment/Posting Title||Post-Doctoral Associate/Fellow Opportunities in Finite Element Analysis, Structural Health Monitoring, and Advanced Concrete Technology|
|Department||Engn-Civil & Environ Engn|
|Salary||Commensurate With Experience|
|Posting Summary|| |
The Rutgers Infrastructure Monitoring and Evaluation (RIME) Group has been developing expertise in the application of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) coupled with Finite Element (FE) analysis for bridges over the past decades. RIME Group is seeking 1 or more Post-doctoral Associate(s)/Fellow(s) to work on faculty-lead research projects to synthesize the research projects conducted to date and work toward extending these results to practical testing and analysis procedures that bridge owners and managers can adopt as part of their more significant preservation strategies. The candidates will be working on the funded research projects to collaborate with federal, state, and local agencies, universities, and private sectors.
