The Scholar is expected to carry out research within the Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering (DICAM) of the University of Trento and to give lectures at advanced level (master’s and doctoral students) within the master’s degree courses in Environmental and Land Engineering, Civil Engineering or Energy Engineering and the courses offered by the PhD School. Teaching load may vary from 2 to 4 hours per week depending upon the type of course offered (master’s or PhD level). The total number of hours should not exceed 30 hours per semester approximately. The average size of classes is between 15 and 25 students.
Willingness to perform other duties, such as thesis advising and providing support to international students, is desirable.
The Department of Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering gathers together researchers of a broad range of areas like Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry, Meteorology, Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology, Environmental protection and management, Energy and Materials Science, Geotechnics, Solid and Structural Mechanics, Structural Analysis and Design, Timber Structures, Energy and Green Technologies, Building Physics; further information on the research areas can be found on the Department’s website.
The Department is made of around 70 professors and research fellows, most of which coming from research experiences in major universities and research centers worldwide. The Department has several research labs, which cover the most significant research topics mentioned above. The Scholar will have the opportunity to collaborate on research projects in one of the above areas.
