Cyber Civil Infrastructure: Future Cities Laboratory, Singapore-ETH Centre, ETH Zurich. Position: Project Coordinator, Cyber Civil Infrastructure Project. Posted 23 July 2015. Location: Singapore.
The Singapore-ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC), a joint effort between ETH Zurich and the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF), launched the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) as its first research program in Singapore in September 2010. During its first phase (2010-15) the FCL team included over 180 members from around the world. Projects involve cutting-edge research in disciplines ranging from planning, engineering and environmental technologies to communications technology and architecture. People at FCL perform research into and develop solutions for the sustainable development of buildings, districts and regions. The FCL Research Project “Cyber Civil Infrastructure”, led by EPFL Prof. Ian Smith, aims to advance knowledge of data interpretation methods for infrastructure that contains sensors. In this context the FCL offers a Full-time Position of Project Coordinator, Cyber Civil Infrastructure Project.
Your Tasks: The goal is to advance the state-of-the-art in model-based structural identification through comparison of up to three data-interpretation methods in various contexts. You will help supervise up to five PhD students within the Cyber Civil Infrastructure Project 2.2 of the 2nd Phase of the Future Cities Laboratory. You will liaise with partners from MIT, Exeter (UK), IITM, NUS and NTU and be the contact point for Singapore government agencies. You will actively initiate and supervise measurement programs on several full-scale structures as the Team Leader.
You will work within the scope of the “Responsive Cities” scenario, collaborating as the Coordinator of one of four projects in this scenario and more generally, within one of three scenarios that make up the 2nd phase of the “Future Cities” project. You will also create links to the other project that is ongoing at SEC, “Future Resiliant Systems” since it is expected that results will lead to more resilient civil infrastructure. Depending on results, an additional task will be to supervise the creation of pre-commercial software for engineering support.
Your Profile: You are interested in working on a project in Singapore and you have the ability to perform research that results in concrete tools and instruments applicable in real-world scenarios. You are a highly motivated candidate with initiative and you enjoy working in an interdisciplinary and multinational team. A PhD degree in Civil Engineering or a related field is necessary and experience in structural analysis as well as measurement data interpretation is a plus.
You will work on the newly built CREATE Campus of the National Research Foundation of the Republic of Singapore. The position will be available from 1 January 2016. Initial appointment is 2 years.
