The Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide.
The EPFL employs 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions : education, research and innovation.
The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of 16,000 people, including over 10,000 students and 3,500 researchers from 120 different countries.
At the Resilient Steel Structures Laboratory (RESSLab), we work in the field of structural civil engineering. The central focus of the laboratory is how to develop new approaches, metrics and tools to enhance resilient-based design of steel and composite-steel structures under multiple hazards.
This is achieved through integrated experimental and computational research that utilizes the latest advancements in material science with high-fidelity nonlinear finite element analysis validated with multi-scale experimental testing.
Research topics span across steel buildings and bridges, performance-based earthquake engineering, seismic risk and loss assessment, modelling of both action effects and resistance in a probabilistic way, existing structures evaluation.
We are part of EPFL's Civil Engineering Institute. The laboratory facilities are located at the main campus in Ecublens, Lausanne.
Main duties and responsibilities include : Degree in civil engineering from an ETH, or equivalent, with a specialisation in structural engineering Excited about mastering unforeseen challenges, meticulous, analytical, inventive, and reliable Start date : As soon as possible Term of employment : Fixed-term (CDD) For additional information, please contact Prof.
