Full/Associate Professor in Concrete Structures
Updated: 26 Oct 2020
Within the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences the Concrete Structures Group, consisting of 13 people, is conducting high-quality research at the interface between science, engineering and design.
The main research lines currently pursued by the Group are
- assessment and maintenance of existing concrete structures such as buildings, bridges, dams, etc;
- introduction of innovative, CO2-neutral, concrete-based materials into the structural design and construction;
- development of new techniques for monitoring of concrete structures.
In order to maintain and further strengthen the leading role of TU Delft in this research field a permanent position for Full (or Associate) Professor has opened up.
In this role you are expected to interweave theoretical and experimental research where newly developed concepts, measurement techniques and models are directly calibrated by experimental research conducted at large scale in the internationally known Stevin II laboratory.
The global goal of the Group is to contribute to a durable future for the built environment. To achieve this goal, coordinated efforts are being made to streamline research and educational activities, so that both innovations and highly qualified specialists are delivered in order to face such major societal challenges as sustainable urbanization, smart transportation and climate change resilience.
