    Two Opening Ph.D. Positions in Civil Engineering, New York, USA
    The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Clarkson University (USA) is pleased to announce two openings for highly motivated and highly qualified PhD students.

    Position 1: Seismic Waveform Tomography (Funded by NSF): Site characterization for design of substructures is often crucial, as unanticipated site conditions represent the most significant cause of problems during and after construction of foundations. Subsurface investigation in a site usually begins with non-destructive testing (NDT) assessment, as the NDT is faster and cheaper than most invasive tests. The goal of this project is to develop a seismic waveform method for extraction of 3-D subsurface structures at high resolution. The focus is to obtain subsurface information at meter-scales to a depth of 30 m using only seismic measurements on the ground surface.

    Position 2: Ultraseismic Waveform Tomography (Funded by state DOTs): Material imaging at small scales (mm or cm) is important for quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) of structural components. The goal of this project is to develop an ultraseismic waveform method to obtain material properties at millimeter-scales. The targeted applications of this technique include structure defects, bridge foundation scour, and material delamination.

    Applicants must hold a bachelor/master degree (at the time of starting the position), preferably in civil or mechanical engineering. TOEFL/IELTS and GRE official scores are required. The ideal candidate should have strong background in mathematics (national/international awards are strongly preferred), numerical modeling, and solid programing skills (Matlab, C++). Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential. The appointment will be for a maximum of four years, and competitive salary includes fringe benefits.

    Interested individuals are invited to submit an application package including a statement of interest, CV, copies of certificates, degree transcripts if available and three referee names as a single pdf to ktran@clarkson.edu or via regular mail to Prof. Dr. Khiem Tran, Civil & Environmental Engineering Department, Clarkson University, 234 Rowley Laboratories, Potsdam, NY 13699-5710.

    Application Deadlines: July 15th, 2017for Fall 2017, and October 15th, 2017 for Spring 2018

    The Clarkson University Civil & Environmental Engineering Department is highly ranked at the graduate level by U.S. News & World Report 2016. Graduate courses and research can lead to a degree of Master of Science, Master of Engineering or Doctor of Philosophy. There are currently 50 full-time graduate students in these programs.
