PhD Scholarship available - QuakeCoRE project

Saturday 23 September 2017 11:27am

The Centre is calling for applications for a 3 year doctoral scholarship commencing early 2018.This doctoral research project will investigate the use of cordons following damaging urban earthquakes. It will contribute to the QuakeCoRE programme (Flagship 3 – Addressing earthquake-vulnerable buildings – a multi-disciplinary approach). QuakeCoRE is a centre for research excellence on earthquake resilience in New Zealand, hosted by the University of Canterbury. For more information visit the QuakeCoRE website

This three-year project will focus on learning lessons from both domestic and international cordoning experiences to inform the planning and implementation of cordons in urban New Zealand. The case study for the project will be the Wellington CBD, and will investigate the potential implications of cordoning following a future major earthquake. The study will provide a baseline for a QuakeCoRE work programme case study focussed on earthquake resilience in Wellington.

The successful candidate will be required to apply for a QuakeCoRE scholarship by January 20th 2018 and begin work in early 2018. If successful, the student will be fully funded by QuakeCoRE for three years.
