We are hiring: PhD Grant available!

Due to aging buildings and climate change, this research gives a “green tinge” to reinforced concrete refurbishment technology, reducing its environmental impact, and strengthening decarbonation in the use of resources, products and systems.

Along 4 years, the selected researcher will promote the circular economy, the development of eco-materials and eco-products (founded on sustainable constructive eco-systems), with a view to more efficient rehabilitation in environmental, economic and functional terms. This grant will focus on recovering materials (wastes) from two intensive industries (construction and steelmaking) converting them into co-products of high added value: eco-inorganic matrices (cement based), ranked as pastes, eco-mortars and eco-micro-concretes.

The selected candidate will develop an international thesis hosted by a well experienced research team in the Faculty of Engineering Bilbao, at SAREN research group.
