Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world
Have you got an interest in structural engineering? We are seeking a highly motivated Technician to join our team and help support our exciting project!
About the role:
You will support a range of activities, aimed at supporting teaching and research within the Civil Engineering laboratories including helping deliver a comprehensive and novel test programme aimed at understanding the shear capacity of reinforced concrete beams with apparently inadequate (short and/or slipped anchorage) or corroded reinforcement. This is part of a project supported by National Highways aimed at developing rational design guidance for such situations to improve the assessment of bridge structures across the UK road network and, this, prevent needless traffic restrictions or structural strengthening works. The results of the project will feed into revisions to their Bridge Assessment documents, specifically the DMRB document CS 455, but also potentially to EN1992-1-1 and the UK National Annex.
You will preferably have experience of casting reinforced concrete structural elements and some experience of instrumentation and laboratory testing, although training in these aspects may be available to candidates who can demonstrate a suitable aptitude. You will have good communication skills and an ability to work independently. The work is largely laboratory based, in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, and you will work alongside a team of experienced technicians within the Department.
This role is offered on a full time, fixed term basis with an expected end date of 30/09/2024.
