PhD student on development of an innovative system for strengthening of existing road bridges
Empa - the place where innovation starts

Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences (OST) teaches at Bachelor and Master level, offer further education and services, and conduct applied research and development. OST is at the pulse of life, in the midst of society and in dialogue with teaching, research and business.

Empa's Structural Engineering Research Laboratory together with the Institute of Construction and Environment (IBU) of OST is offering the position of a

PhD student on development of an innovative system for strengthening of existing road bridges
in the framework of an Innosuisse industry project.
Your tasks
  • Development of an innovative system for strengthening of existing road bridges based on combination of memory-steel reinforcement and ultra-high-performance fibre reinforced concrete (UHPFRC)
  • Detailed FE modelling of the new innovative strengthening system
  • Planning of appropriate middle- and large-scale experimental set-ups for mechanical characterization of the proposed strengthening system
  • Performance of experiments in the construction laboratory at Empa and evaluation of results, application of innovative measuring systems like digital image correlation (DIC) measurements and optical fibres
  • Development of accompanying analytical models for mechanical behaviour of the proposed strengthening system
  • Application and evaluation of the strengthening system on a real bridge structure within a pilot project
  • Independent processing of the research including communication with laboratory personal, supervisors and project partners
  • Project documentation (internal) and scientific publication (external)
  • Supervision of students in the context of bachelor and master theses will be possible
Your profile
  • Engineering university degree (Master) in civil engineering with specialization in structural engineering
  • Strong modelling skills (analytical and FE)
  • Strong experimental skills, i.e. ability to develop optimal experimental set-ups as well as to organize and successfully perform experiments in the laboratory
  • Team worker, able to collaborate with lab personal as well as with industry partners on the daily basis
  • Experience in the engineering practice (design and / or execution of engineering structures, preferably bridges) is of advantage
  • Excellent communication and writing skills in English are mandatory, good German language skills are desirable
We offer
  • Independent work with development opportunities in a future-oriented subject area with high innovation potential
  • Modern laboratory with state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment at Empa in Dübendorf as well as at OST in Rapperswil
  • Daily Supervision by renowned scientists and practitioners in the field of structural engineering, UHP-FRC and memory-steel reinforcement
  • Collaboration with project partners including a leading cement production company and renowned Swiss Start-up-company
This PhD thesis will be enrolled at the ETH Zurich and co-supervised by Empa and OST. The main working place will be at Empa in Dübendorf, whereas a further working place will be at OST in Rapperswil. The position is available from 1 March 2022.
For further information about the position please contact Dr Christoph Czaderski Click to send email or Prof. Dr Ivan Markovic Click to send email and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s303 and https://www.ibu.hsr.ch/index.php?id=15533&L=3 and Empa-Video

We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please upload the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
