We are seeking a highly-motivated post-doctoral researcher for a five year period in the field of fleet sourced monitoring to join the Intelligent Infrastructure Group and the Sir William Wright Technology Centre (W-Tech) at Queen's University Belfast. As part of the Centre, the researcher will support activities in a newly funded EPSRC Prosperity Partnership, StreetZero, aimed at exploring the implications of a move towards increasing electrification of bus vehicles. The researcher will work in a multidisciplinary team with researchers from vehicle engineering,civil engineering and policy to undertake fundamental research in fleet sourced monitoring. By stimulating a digital transformation in the monitoring,processing and analysis of information about our infrastructure, we can predict how it will perform under changing vehicle loads, cycles of loading and environmental factors, and move towards Smart Infrastructure. This post offers an exciting opportunity for someone with a passion for working at the cutting edge of novel integrated solutions for smart infrastructure.
