We are pleased to announce 15 positions for Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) within the Guided Waves for Structural Health Monitoring (GW4SHM) project funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019-860104). The offered positions are available with a starting date in the period from May 1st, 2020 – January 1st, 2021 for a maximum duration of 3 years. The ESRs will acquire multidisciplinary scientific expertise, complementary skills, and experience working in both academia and industry. The GW4SHM consortium consists of 12 beneficiaries and 10 partner organisations involving universities, research organisations, government agencies and industries from 8 European Countries: Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom. The consortium, coordinated by Dr. Jens Prager from the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung), Berlin, Germany, will perform cutting edge research and training in the field of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) focusing on aeronautics, petrochemistry and the automotive sector.

Background:

SHM is essential to guarantee the safe and reliable operation of technical appliances and will be a key enabler to exploit emerging technologies such as remaining useful lifetime prognosis, condition-based maintenance, and digital twins. Particularly, SHM using ultrasonic guided waves is a promising approach for monitoring chemical plants, pipelines, transport systems and aeronautical structures. While substantial progress has been made in the development of SHM technology, current techniques are often realised only at lab-scale. Missing quantification of reliability hinders their practical application. The substantial effort for signal processing and of permanent transducer integration as well as the lack of efficient simulation tools to improve understanding of guided wave-structure interaction and to predict the capabilities of the system limit their widespread use. The aim of this project is to combine efficient simulation and signal processing tools for SHM for the first time and to assess the reliability of the monitoring systems. We will develop SHM concept to assess the integrity of structures and create ready-to-use tools for industry and other SHM users.

Benefits:

  • 3-year full-time employment contract (salary depends on the country of the recruitment considering both the local and EU regulations)
  • Secondments at other labs within the GW4SHM Consortium
  • Enrolment in a local PhD school
  • Participation in the network-wide training activities, national and international conferences

Eligibility criteria:

  • having a master’s degree or its equivalent
  • having not more than 4 years of equivalent research experience, i.e. working as a researcher after obtaining your master’s degree
  • having not been awarded a PhD title
  • having not resided or carried out her/his main activity in the country to be recruited in for more than 12 months in the last 3 years
  • high level of proficiency in English (B2 or higher on the CEFR scale)
