Post doc in Probabilistic Design (2021-224-03741)
At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of the Built
Environment, a position as Post doc in Probabilistic Design is open for
appointment from October 1, 2021 or soon hereafter. This is a 3 year full-time
position. The position will be within the research group Risk, Resilience,
Safety and Sustainability of Systems in the Division of Civil Engineering and
Construction Management. The position is in Aalborg.
The Department of the Built Environment (BUILD) focuses on the technical and
scientific disciplines within the built environment. Research areas span from
Indoor Environment and Energy Efficient buildings, Wind Turbines, Structural
Design, Structural Materials, Geotechnical Engineering, Wave Energy to Traffic
along with many other areas. The research is conducted in a national as well
as an international research environment. The department takes on contract

projects involve both theoretical research and in situ measurements along with
laboratory experiments. As an employee at the Department of the Built
Environment, you become a part of an international research environment, where
focus is on innovation, knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary
Research areas will be within probabilistic modeling, analysis and design of
wind turbines and other civil engineering structures by advanced probabilistic
methods including Bayesian statistical techniques, advanced methods for
analysis of data for stochastic modelling of loads and resistances of
structural systems. Focus will be on data-driven probabilistic design of wind
turbines, cost and reliability modelling of wind turbine blades and
reliability analysis of sustainable foundations for buildings with the aim to
develop a research-based framework for probabilistic design and for
implementation in standards.
Limited teaching within the area can be expected, but also in other study
programmes at the University.
