Ph.D PhD studentship in Civil Engineering

at Clemson University in United States

The Civil Engineering Department at Clemson University invites applications for twoGraduate Assistantships for Ph.D. Students to start August 2010. The Graduate Assistants will investigate the coupling of Single Phenomena Models into one Multi-Phenomena Model, and the application of statistical methods to quantify uncertainty, determine parameter sensitivity and infer parameter values from experiments.

During the course of their graduate education, the Ph.D. students will be expected to acquire relevant skills in (1) Effect Screening, (2) Sensitivity Analysis, (3) Experimental Design, (4) Sampling Techniques, (5) Uncertainty Quantification, (6) Model Verification and Validation and expertise in (7) Statistical Inference for model Calibration. Therefore, the suitable background of the doctoral student to accomplish these tasks in a timely manner, must include (1) statistics, (2) numerical modeling, and (3) programming experience (e.g. Matlab, Fortran, C, C++, parallel computing, Unix programming and Linux) . Although an M.S. degree is not mandatory, students with a prior M.S. degree will be given priority. Applicants should have good command of both written and spoken English.
Graduate Assistantships will be in the form of a 1/4-time (10 hours per week) teaching assistantship and a 1/4 time (10 hours per week) research assistantship to provide the students with expertise in both teaching and research in civil engineering.

CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
The Clemson University School of Civil Engineering, has approximately 50 graduate students, 22 full-time faculty members. The Department conducts research in six key areas: Applied Fluid Mechanics, Construction Engineering and Management, Construction Materials, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Transportation Systems.

Interested Students are Invited to send resumes, statements of professional interests and contact information for three references to:
