ASSISTANT, ASSOCIATE, OR FULL RESEARCH
SCIENTIST IN STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING The
University of California, San Diego, Department
of Structural Engineering (http://structures.ucsd.
edu/) seeks candidates for the position of Research
Scientist to lead the research operations and implementation of innovative structural testing methods
at the Englekirk Structural Engineering Center.
The candidate is expected to contribute to and support the research mission of the laboratory as well
as attract and mange experimental programs from
industry. Research expertise in structural dynamics, experimental mechanics, and controls, particularly as related to structural and seismic testing is
desired. The candidate must be well versed in the
operation of servo-hydraulic control systems and
data acquisition/instrumentation systems, and have
knowledge of modern cloud computing for data exchange, storage, retrieval and post-processing; as
well as dynamic scheduling and budgeting methods
to allow smooth collaboration with national partners. The Center is home to the Large High Performance Shake Table (LHPOS T), the largest shake table in the US, and the Blast Simulator Facility among
other structural and geotechnical testing facilities.
The mission of the Englekirk Center is to provide
the structural engineering community with a world-class testing facility producing high quality experimental data as well as consultation on experimental
design and training/education. The LHPOST is currently a national shared-use experimental facility as
part of the National Science Foundation supported
Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) program ( http://nheri.ucsd.edu/).
An earned doctoral degree or advancement to can-
didacy in civil engineering, mechanical engineering,
structural engineering, or a related field is required
at the time of application. Entry-level candidates for
a Research Scientist (non-instructional) will need
to demonstrate that their research trajectories are
likely to position them to become independent sci-
entists within a few years after appointment, while
mid-senior level candidates will be expected to
have a track record of independent peer-review re-
search. For consideration, please apply via https://
Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum
vitae, a statement of scholarly interests and accomplishments especially as related to structural
testing, the names and contact information of three
to five referees, and a personal statement summarizing past or potential contributions to diversity. For
further information about contributions to diversity statements, see: http://facultyequity.ucsd.edu/
Faculty-Applicant-C2D-Info.asp. Candidates may
also submit a statement of interest in or evidence of
teaching effectiveness (e.g., teaching evaluations).
Review of applications will begin on June 1, 2017, and
will continue until the position is filled. The level of
appointment is commensurate with qualifications
and salary based on UC pay scales.
UC San Diego is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and the Jacobs School of Engineering
is committed to building an excellent, diverse, and inclusive faculty, staff, and student body (http://www.
