Portugal: Two PhD scholarships in Civil engineering

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

n a short period of time two contests will be opened for two research scholarships (980€/month). Both are included in the project “GFRP / Fire Protection Systems for GFRP Pultruded Profiles” financed by the Portuguese government through the Foundation for the Science and Technology (http://alfa.fct.mctes.pt/).

The work will be done at the Department of Civil engineering, Instituto Superior Técnico (https://fenix.ist.utl.pt/departamentos/decivil) in collaboration with other institutions (a university and company) during 36 months. The objective of this project is to access (i) the behaviour of GFRP under the action of fire and (ii) the performance of innovative fire protecting systems. These tasks will be performed using experimental tests (scholarship 1, under the supervision of Professors Fernando Branco and João Ramôa Correia) and numerical procedures (scholarship 2, under the supervision of Professors
Teixeira de Freitas and Carlos Tiago).

Graduation in Civil or Mechanical Engineering is required.

Interested candidates for one of the positions should send their detailed Curriculum Vitae to fbranco[ at ]civil.ist.utl.pt or jcorreia[ at ]civil.ist.utl.pt (scholarship 1) or to freitas[ at ]civil.ist.utl.pt and carlos.tiago[ at ]civil.ist.utl.pt (scholarship 2).
