*** Recruiting for Fall 2024 ***

 Please read the following carefully.

I am currently looking to recruit one (1) graduate PhD student to undertake research on timber structures. This includes studying how timber members, connections, and assemblies behave under the effect of day-to-day loading and/or extreme loads, such as blasts and impacts.

The project will entail conducting experimental testing in the lab and/or fieldwork, as well as conducting some form of finite element modelling.


  • Must be self-motivated.
  • Must be comfortable working in a laboratory setting.
  • Must have prior knowledge of wood engineering and/or blast engineering.
  • Prior knowledge on dynamics of structures will be considered an asset.
  • Prior knowledge on finite element analysis or computational fluid dynamics will be considered an asset.

When emailing, prospective students should compose a cover letter as text in their email.  The email should include the following:

  • Email subject stating: “Application for F2024 PhD Opening – YourLastName
  • your CGPA;
  • your research interests, and how they align with my areas of research;
  • list of peer-reviewed publications (if any);
  • relevant research skills and experience, and;
  • an up-to-date CV in .PDF format.

I will reply if there is a fit!
