Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

This project is sponsored by Network Rail and is an exciting opportunity to work on the degradation of masonry-lined tunnels, which pose a risk to UK railway infrastructure.

This project will: (i) enhance understanding of the degradation processes; (ii) investigate inspection and condition assessment strategies; and (iii) develop modelling techniques, leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence, to evaluate current, and forecast future, degradation. The outcomes will lead to improvements in Network Rail’s capability to proactively manage these important assets.

The doctoral researcher will have the opportunity to engage with Network Rail inspection and monitoring data and will be expected to develop data analytics and modelling approaches.

The studentship is for 3 years and provides a tax-free stipend of £18,622 per annum for the duration of the studentship plus tuition fees at the UK rate. Due to funding restrictions, the studentship is only open to UK applicants.

Tuition fees cover the cost of your teaching, assessment and operating University facilities such as the library, IT equipment and other support services. University fees and charges can be paid in advance and there are several methods of payment, including online payments and payment by instalment. Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to increase to take into account inflationary pressures.
