Faculty in the Department of Systems Engineering and Management at the Air Force Institute of Technology are hiring three postdoctoral researchers across three different infrastructure risk-related projects. Postdoctoral researchers will work with Dr. Christopher M. Chini and Dr. Justin Delorit on joint research projects related to infrastructure resilience. We will begin reviewing applications on June 30, 2021. Anticipated Appointment Start Date: Fall 2021/Spring 2022 (flexible). Each postdoctoral research position is for two years with the potential for a one-year extension contingent upon performance and funding.
To combat the changing risks posed by climate change and aging infrastructure, it is necessary to identify proper adaptation pathways for rehabilitating, upgrading, and replacing infrastructure. The following three projects each offer opportunities to advance infrastructure management and risk assessment. All projects are funded by the Department of Defense and require the passing of a security clearance before hiring.
All three postdoctoral positions will be administered through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) and was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and DOD. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience, as well as coverage (100% of total premium) of individual health insurance, available through ORISE. A relocation stipend will also be provided. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at AFIT in Dayton, OH; however, there is a possibility for working remotely in the short term. Participants do not become employees of the DOD, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.
To apply for the position, contact Ms. Jennifer Ngo (AFIT_GEM@afit.edu). Provide a curriculum vitae and examples of up to 3 previous publications. Position is open until filled.
