University of Cambridge UKTwo PhD Studentships are expected to be available to start on 1 Oct 2013 for suitably qualified candidates to conduct research leading to the award of a PhD degree in the field of Construction Engineering. The research will be conducted at the Construction Information Technology laboratory that is part of the Laing O’Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology. The project is funded by the US National Science Foundation, in conjunction with the EU FP7 Marie Curie International Research Staff Exchange Scheme and industry.

The project will explore ways to detect existing infrastructure objects in spatial and visual data for the purpose of automating the generation of as-built geometric infrastructure models. The project will address both construction engineering and computer vision issues and provides the opportunity for a 1-year fully funded visiting studies at Georgia Tech at the beginning for those applicants who wish to extend their knowledge base in computing prior to engaging in research; thus the candidates missing background in computer vision can gain it if they are prepared to travel to the US for a short period.

The candidate should be qualified to at least first degree level with an upper second or first class honours degree in an appropriate branch of Engineering (e.g. Civil, Information, Electrical, Mechanical) or Computer Science. The studentships are funded, covering maintenance, College and University fees (home or overseas), and continuation of funding is subject to annual performance review.

Applications comprising a detailed CV, cover letter and the names and addresses of two referees should be sent by email to Dr Ioannis Brilakis, by 3rd June 2013. Dr Brilakis would also welcome informal enquiries. The successful applicant will be required subsequently to submit a standard application to the University (GRADSAF):
