Project Description

Applications are invited from UK/EU candidates only.

For further information and informal enquiries, please contact Dr Giorgia Giardina,

The BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials (https://www.bath.ac.uk/research-centres/bre-centre-for-innovative-construction-materials), in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering, is seeking eligible applicants for an PhD studentship. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding.

Project:

The project, run in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will use Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) monitoring to assess the structural vulnerability of historic heritage. While traditional monitoring requires in-situ installation and a preliminary evaluation of vulnerable structures, very recent advances in InSAR techniques enable remote monitoring over extensive areas, providing quasi-real time and highly dense measurements with sub-millimetres accuracy. To exploit this vast improvement in data acquisition this project will use InSAR data as input to improve assessment procedures for the measurement of historic structure relative displacements, and the early detection of damage indicators.

Applicant:

Applicants should hold, or expect to receive, an undergraduate Masters first class degree or MSc distinction (or non-UK equivalent). English language entry requirements must be met at the time of application to be considered for funding, see http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/apply/english-language/index.html


Application:

Formal applications should be made via the University of Bath’s online application form for a PhD in Architecture & Civil Engineering. Please ensure that you state the full project title and lead supervisor name on the application form.

Funding Notes

Applications are invited from UK/EU candidates only. The ‘Michael Dickson’ studentship, subject to confirmation of funding, is expected to be fully funded by the BRE Trust and will cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and maintenance in line with the UKRI Doctoral stipend rate (£15,009 per annum, 2019/20 rate) for up to 3.5 years full-time study. The studentship is also expected to include an allowance for travel and subsistence as well as some funds for project expenditure to acquire essential materials and minor equipment.
