Open PhD position on system identification and structural health monitoring

PhD research position in robust vibration-based damage identification

Reference: G0099014N
The Structural Mechanics Section of the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of
Leuven (KU Leuven) invites applications for a
The vacant position is funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO) within the
research project “Robust vibration-based damage identification with a novel high-accuracy
strain measurement system”. We offer an internationally competitive PhD grant of about 1870
euro per month (net income) as well as an excellent research environment, centrally located in

Vibration-based damage identification is a very promising structural health monitoring
technique as it is nondestructive, it is able to identify damage at unknown and invisible
locations, and it does not need artificial excitation. This project aims at tackling two major
challenges that are faced when applying vibration-based damage identification to civil
structures under operational conditions: the sensitivity of dynamic characteristics to a certain
type of damage may be low, and environmental factors such as temperature affect the dynamic
characteristics, so they need to be accounted for in the damage identification process.

More information on becoming a PhD student at KU Leuven and living in Leuven can be
found at www.kuleuven.be/phd, set.kuleuven.be/phd (Leuven Arenberg Doctoral School) and
www.kuleuven.be. Depending on their background (MSc diploma, research experience),
students may need to pass a pre-doctoral test (e.g. selected courses and presentation of
research plan) prior to being allowed to the PhD program.

Applicants should hold or be close to obtaining an MSc degree (or equivalent) in Civil
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a related field, with a solid background in
structural dynamics, numerical techniques and/or systems and control. They should be highly
motivated to complete a PhD within four years.

Candidates are invited to submit their application online at the following web address: https://phd.kuleuven.be/apply/sap?id=52837961. For more information about the project and

Digital Heritage Research Training Project: Call for 16 PhD-Fellowships and 4 PostDoc Positions


The call for fellows is online and available on the ITN-DCH website: www.itn-dch.eu

The “Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage: Projecting our Past to the Future” with acronym ITN-DCH (www.itn-dch.eu), is the first and one of the largest Marie Curie fellowship projects in the area of the e-documentation / e-preservation and Cultural Heritage (CH) protection funded by the European Union under the FP7 PEOPLE research framework (http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/ ). The Project started on the 1st of October 2013 and it is a consortium comprising of 14 full partners and 9 associate members covering the entire spectrum of European CH actors, ranging from academia, research institutions, industry, museums, archives and libraries. The project aims to train 20 fellows (16 Early Stage Researchers and 4 Experienced Researchers – 500 person months) in the area of CH digital documentation, preservation and protection in order to create for them a strong academic profile and market oriented skills which will significantly contribute to their career prospects. The consortium and the fellows training programme will be supported by a prestigious advisory board.

ITN-DCH aims -for the first time worldwide- to analyze, design, research, develop and validate an innovative multidisciplinary and inter-sectorial research training framework that covers the entire lifecycle of digital CH research for a cost– effective preservation, documentation, protection and presentation of cultural heritage. CH is an integral element of Europe and vital for the creation of a common European identity and one of the greatest assets for steering Europe’s social, economic development and job creation. However, the current research training activities in CH are fragmented and mostly design to be of a single discipline, failing to cover the whole lifecycle of Digital Cultural Heritage (DCH) research, which is by nature a multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial research agenda. ITN-DCH targets all aspects of CH ranging from tangible (books, newspapers, images, drawings, manuscripts, uniforms, maps, artefacts, archaeological sites, monuments) to intangible content (e.g., music, performing arts, folklore, theatrical performances) and their inter-relationships. The project aims to boost the added value of CH assets by re-using them in real application environments (protection of CH, education, tourism industry, advertising, fashion, films, music, publishing, video games and TV) through research on (i) new personalized, interactive, mixed and augmented reality enabled e-services, (ii) new recommendations in data acquisition, (iii) new forms of representations (3D/4D) of both tangible /intangible assets and (iv) interoperable metadata forms that allow easy data exchange and  archiving.

The ITN-DCH project is seeking highly motivated and valuable researchers for PhD positions in the entire field of Digital Heritage, such as: Data Acquisition (Photogrammetry, Terrestrial laser scanning, GIS) and Computer Vision data processing, 3D reconstruction and modeling, symbolic, semantic and ontology representation, metadata, mixed and augmented reality technologies, CH e-services. All the fellows are supposed to travel between the project partners and attend a series of complementary training courses, scientific workshops and summer schools.
