About the Project

Brunel University London (BUL) is recruiting to EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships effective 1 October 2020. Applications are invited for the following specific project entitled “Digital Stone Construction”. Successful applicants will receive an annual stipend (bursary) of £17,285 plus payment of their full-time home tuition fees for a period of 36 months (3 years). Applicants must be eligible for home tuition fees either through nationality, residency (living in the UK for at least three years and not wholly for educational purposes) or other connection to the UK.

The successful applicant will join the internationally recognised researchers in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. A new Digital Stone concept combines digital technology with the well-established benefits of masonry construction (sustainability, resilience, low life-cycle costs) to create the most advanced and sustainable construction alternative for housing and infrastructure.

Project ideas are welcome in various disciplines, such as sustainability, environmental impact, BIM, digital design, digital quarrying, stone cutting, printed stone, embedded sensors, remote controlled site construction and life-cycle assessment.

Applicants will be required to demonstrate strong analytical skills in engineering or relevant disciplines, an
aptitude for working in laboratory, field and/or with industrial partners; highly creative problem-solving skills; self-motivation; an inquisitive mind and excellent communication skills.
