The candidate is expected to develop a fundamental understanding of the critical engineering factors for circularity in the design, build, maintain and operate cycle of construction (and other, similar product cycles), specifically in the fields of materials and civil&environmental engineering. These factors include all engineering practices, i.e., innovative technologies and materials but also information flows, regulations and economic driving factors. The candidate shall aim to develop her own group of researchers, delivering research output that can guide relevant stakeholders in producing more circular constructions and form the basis of advanced engineering courses in this field.
The candidate has completed a PhD on a topic which demonstrates her ability to think in fundamental concepts and to model complex processes involving large amounts of data. The candidate should be comfortable with process modelling. The candidate should also be able to communicate with a multidisciplinary group of stakeholders and to develop the necessary skills for attracting funding for PhD studies and managing a group of researchers. The candidate should have a clear style of communication of results in order to reach an audience with a varied background, including students. A postdoc experience in recycling of construction materials and/or reuse of structures will be an advantage.
