The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley welcomes applications for a postdoctoral scholar to support a project in Infrastructure Monitoring and Modeling. The goal of the monitoring, modeling and analysis is to investigate the dynamic behavior of aging road and rail bridges in order to better understand degradation processes, to better evaluate current safety, and develop more effective and efficient monitoring and maintenance procedures. The researcher will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary group of researchers at the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) and the Turing Institute.
The Department Civil & Environmental Engineering seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar employee, in the area of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, or in a related field, at 100% time. The candidate will perform work under the supervision of Professor Matthew De Jong.

The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus - envisioned as a "City of Learning" - was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Today the world's premier public university and a wellspring of innovation, UC Berkeley occupies a 1,232 acre campus with a sylvan 178-acre central core. From this home its academic community makes key contributions to the economic and social well-being of the Bay Area, California, and the nation.
