美国北卡罗来纳大学夏洛特分校博士后职位---土木工程

Post Doctoral Fellow; EPIC

University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Description

The Postdoctoral appointee must have recently (within the last eight years) been awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D.)

Departmental Preferred Experience, Skills, Training/Education:

Ph.D. in Civil Engineering or related field with deeper understanding of geotechnical and geoenvironmental systems. 2. A strong numerical modeling background using commercial software PLAXIS and FLAC for geotechnical engineering projects.

Duties and Responsibilities

A Postdoctoral Fellow (""postdoc"") is a professional apprenticeship designed to provide recent Ph.D. recipients with an opportunity to develop further the research skills acquired in their doctoral programs or to learn new research techniques, in preparation for an academic or research career. In the process of further developing their own research skills, it is expected that Postdoctoral Fellows will also play a significant role in the performance of research at the University and augment the role of graduate faculty in providing research instruction to graduate students. A Postdoctoral Fellow works under the supervision of a regular faculty member, who serves as a mentor to the Fellow, and it is expected that the faculty mentor will impart the realities, and variety, of scientific careers, and will encourage experiences outside the laboratory to broaden postdocs' aspirations. Within the confines of the particular research focus assigned by that faculty member, the Postdoctoral Fellow functions with a considerable degree of independence and has the freedom (and is expected) to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment. Thus, the role of Postdoctoral Fellows is clearly differentiated from full-time technical employees.

Postdoc appointments are characterized by all of the following conditions:

the appointee was recently (within the last eight years) awarded a Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., Sc.D., M.D.); the appointment is temporary; the appointment involves substantially full-time research or scholarship; the appointment is viewed as preparatory for a full-time academic and/or research career; the appointee works under the supervision of a faculty member; and the appointee has the freedom and is expected to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of appointment.

As an EOE/AA employer and an ADVANCE Institution that strives to create an academic climate in which the dignity of all individuals is respected and maintained, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte encourages applications from all underrepresented groups. Applicants subject to criminal background check.

Other Work/Responsibilities

The employee will report to Professor Milind V. Khire and will be a senior member of Professor Khire's research group, supporting projects through original research, collaboration with other internal and external team members, and mentoring of students. The employee will also prepare technical reports, peer-reviewed scholarly articles and conference presentations, land ead proposal efforts to attract additional external funding.

The employee's principal research responsibilities will be performing research on geotechnical numerical modeling of soil-structural interaction using commercial programs PLAXIS and FLAC and carrying out lab and field-based experiments. The employee will confer with Professor Khire on overall research direction and strategy but will exercise a considerable amount of independent judgment and original thinking in carrying out research that contributes to original knowledge

The employee will have already acquired a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and  should be able to exercise scientific judgment on a day-to-day basis. He or she will be able to carry out review of written documentation, participate in project meetings, and will use this information to carry out geotechnical numerical modeling and experiments
