Applications are invited from appropriately qualified individuals for a PhD Scholarship in the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) (Brisbane).

As one of Australia’s leading universities, QUT has a solid record of success in solving problems for industry and the community, and developing new products and processes.

The project:

Many bridges in Australia are old and are now subjected to heavier and faster moving loads, than originally envisaged and in addition suffer structural deterioration with age. These factors can cause localised distress, which if not attended to can cause bridge failure with adverse consequences.

To address this, the Commonwealth Government, through the Australian Research Council, supported by Queensland Main Roads Department and Brisbane City Council recently funded a research project to develop an innovative structural health monitoring system to monitor and predict distress in our bridges.

This project will develop and use modern sensor (wired and wireless) technology and dynamic computer simulation techniques to achieve the aims.

The Scholarship:

The successful applicant can expect up to $40,000 pa tax free, depending on qualifications and experience. This amount includes about $4,000 worth of tutoring. A top-up of $10,000 from CR-CIEAM is possible.

Application criteria:

We are looking for a Honours graduate in Civil/Structural/Mechanical/ Electrical Engineering with interests in experimental work and finite element modelling.

Application closing date

Applications will be considered until a suitable candidate is chosen.
