CALL FOR ONE EARLY STAGE RESEARCHER POSITION (PhD Student)
University of Coimbra opens a call for one Early Stage Reseacher Position (to develop his PhD in Civil Engineering at UC), in the framework of the METAVISION project (reference: Grant Agreement n.º 101072415 — METAVISION — HORIZON-MSCA-2021-DN-01), funded by the European Union through Horizon Europe - MSCA Doctoral Networks programme, call 101072415, in the following conditions:
Scientific area: Civil Engineering;
Work plan/ Objectives: This doctoral project is part of a larger, multidisciplinary and international project METAVISION: “METAmaterials for VIbration and Sound reductION” (Grant Agreement n.º 101072415) funded under the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Networks within the Horizon Europe Programme of the European Commission. The PhD work of the candidate will address one major problem in acoustic performance of building elements, related with specific dynamic phenomena at given frequencies, for which large insulation dips occur greatly reducing their insulation performance. Here, a strategy to incorporate acoustic resonant structures in panels to mitigate critical and resonant frequency effects will be devised, to maximize their performance without increasing their mass. Appropriate manufacturing processes will also be addressed to allow embedding of the resonant structures within the panel, rendering competitive and useful practical solutions.
The selected candidate will be required to enrol the PhD program in Civil Engineering of the University of Coimbra, in the path of Constructions. The candidate will have to complete a number of compulsory and optional courses in the first semester (a total of 30 ECTS), after which he will develop the research work. The work will be mainly developed at the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Coimbra, and secondments with the EMPA (Switzerland) and SBB (Switzerland) are expected to occur during the PhD.
