Vacancy for Two Early Stage Researcher positions in SAFERUP

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks, Early Stage Researcher (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2017), two full time positions for early stage researchers (ESRs) in the field of Urban Pavements - SAFERUP Project

Marie Skłodwska-Curie Initial Training Network SAFERUP!

Urban pavements comprise almost 40% of European cities and are the main means by which the public travels every day. Urban pavements must accommodate all users in the most efficient, safe, sustainable and smart way. A key factor to increase the liveability of tomorrow’s Smart Cities will be transforming the way urban pavements are perceived, designed, built, maintained and function. SAFERUP! aims at providing cities with innovative solutions that will form the future urban paved environment, by training talented researchers in the fields of: smart, recycled and durable paving materials; enhancing accessibility and safety of vulnerable users (e.g. elderly & disabled); studying user behaviour; analysing life cycles; managing wash-off water and bioremediation; producing tempered and acoustic pavements; enabling energy harvesting and self-sensing technologies. The SAFERUP! Consortium believes in this future and has created a unique team of world leading commercial and academic research engineers and scientists, with a diverse range of expertise needed to develop the novel solutions required to deliver this future and its anticipated benefits. Fifteen ESRs will undertake their PhDs in a research and training programme designed to optimise their multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral experience through secondments and a variety of SAFERUP!-wide forums. All ESRs’ projects are interrelated and considerable synergies, trans-project contributions and collaborations will occur. A key focus of the training will be career planning, entrepreneurship and skills development in particular communication. SAFERUP! participants with communication expertise will develop the communication and dissemination strategy to maximise the exploitation of the developed solutions. SAFERUP! will create a new generation of professionals with multidisciplinary expertise in urban pavements and related fields appealing to employers, who will expand the social benefits of the new urban pavements well beyond the end of SAFERUP!

Two positions are available:

ESR1: High Friction & Acoustic Surfacing for Pavements (Hi-FASP)

The job is a full time position for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in the field of road pavements and innovative construction materials. The title of the project is: High Friction & Acoustic Surfacing for Pavements (Hi-FASP). The goals are to create macro and micro-textured surfacing materials with superior skid-resistance and acoustic features even at urban speeds. The proposed paving materials and solutions will be able to increase the safety of users and decrease the road noise impact on the environment.

ESR3: Vulnerable Users Protection with advanced paving materials (ProtectVU).

The job is a full time position for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in the field of road pavements and innovative construction materials. The title of the project is: Vulnerable Users Protection with advanced paving materials (ProtectVU). The goals are to develop solutions for advanced paving materials (including footpaths and bicycle tracks) for the protection of users, in particular those more susceptible to falls and impact injuries and, to use recycled rubbers and impact absorption techniques to create new user friendly and green materials. The proposed paving solutions will be able to increase the safety of vulnerable road users.
