Four post-doc and five PhD positions at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Four post-doc and five PhD positions in soil-structure interaction for tree stability: “Engineering a safer urban forest under extreme storms”

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUTS) is actively recruiting multiple post-doc and PhD positions for studying tree stability problems using geotechnical and structural engineering principles and research methods. We are looking for candidates who are interested in:
(1) Field testing of tree biomechanics and root anchorage;
(2) Centrifuge modelling of soil-root interaction;
(3) Numerical modelling of soil-root interaction;
(4) Wind tunnel modelling of wind-tree-soil-root interaction; and
(5) Analytical tree dynamic modelling for reliability-based analysis.
Different positions require different skill sets; please see attached detailed job advert. For more information: JobAdvert-PhD and JobAdvert-PostDoc

Application:  Interested candidates are invited to send (i) a motivation letter (< 2 pages); (ii) a CV with a full list of publication; (iii) proof of English proficiency (valid IELTS/TOFEL certificates); (iv) names of 2 references; (v) copies of bachelor, master degrees or/and PhD degrees and transcripts; and (vi) abstract of master dissertation (if any) to the project coordinator, Dr Anthony Leung (ceanthony@ust.hk).
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed (remotely) by project members. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Starting date is September 2021.

Contact: For more information about these positions, please contact the project coordinator: Dr Anthony Leung (ceanthony@ust.hk)
