Academic positions

Full-time academic position in sustainable structural design

The School of Engineering (EPB) of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) offers a full-time academic position in Sustainable Structural Design.
This area of research and teaching is related to structural design with a focus on the specific field of sustainability. In particular, it aims to address new challenges in structural design of civil engineering structures taking into account sustainability constraints. The successful applicant will develop research and teaching in the domain of sustainable structural design. He/She is expected to have developed expertise in one or more of the topics related to the domain.
The successful applicant will be involved in academic related support service activities among which an involvement in the academic management at the level of the course program, Department, Faculty or University, and a contribution to Community / Societal service and student recruitment activities of the School.
He/She will be invited to apply for a grant from the European Research Council (ERC) and for any source of external funding (FNRS, Europe).

PhD positions

Two PhD positions available in the Laboratory of Civil Engineering

 

Two PhD positions are available in the framework of the EOS Interact project (https://interact.ulb.be) "An interdisciplinary multiscale assessment of a new generation of concrete with alkali activated materials."

This project bridges knowledge gaps for alkali-activated material (AAM), by applying experimental and theoretical methods to AAM. This research will provide in-depth understanding on the fundamental mechanism of the solidification processes, rheological properties, volume stability, and evolution of mechanical properties. This will be coupled with predictive multiscale modelling. By interlinking the complementary expertise of the involved partners, the limits of current research capabilities are pushed forward, an new methods for developing “microstructurally designed concrete” might arise. In addition, this project will formulate challenging technique developments, adapted to AAM at the scale of industrial concrete applications. The insights obtained in this project will not be beneficial for AAMs only, as they will provide a scientific basis for designing environmentally friendly binders with properties as favourable or even superior to the ones of classical cement paste.

New PhD position in Circular Economy

The PhD project will problematize the eclosion of Circular Economy (CE) configurations with respect to their multi-dimensional performances. Circular Economy initiatives in private companies show a rich diversity of business cases and industrial/commercial models by combining different mechanisms and concepts such as the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ nexus, the material cycling and material flow concepts, systems thinking, etc. Simultaneously, a subset of EC initiatives implements alternative economic models, e.g. cooperatives, platform economy, etc. Considering the current socio-political importance given to such EC initiatives in terms of the competitiveness of the business opportunities they develop, the present PhD project intends to question whether the vital sustainable systems thinking is operationalized by such EC initiatives.

The Phd project will contribute to the methodological and empirical development of multi-dimensional performance evaluations of EC-initiatives, in particular on two cases from different economic sectors: (a) Combining the mobility and energy sector by reusing 2nd life batteries in electric grid applications and (b) a case from the building sector. The elaboration of the multi-dimensionality of the framework is part of the PhD project, but could cover dimensions such as economic viability, commercial potential, innovative transformativity, environmental life-cycle performance, social acceptance…
