SimCenter Early Career Research Webinars – A Call for Candidates
The SimCenter is seeking Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Early Career Faculty who would like to share their simulation-based natural hazard engineering research with their peers. Webinars are anticipated to be 45 minutes in length followed by 15-30 minutes of Q&A. Complete the Nomination Form.
The SimCenter is inspired to share the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) recent Dear Colleague Letter. The SimCenter is poised to collaborate with researchers intending to fulfill this NSF-mandated mission through modeling, computation, and simulation.
UC Berkeley Announces Two Postdoctoral Position Openings: Software Development for CFD and Machine Learning at the NHERI SimCenter. Review of applications will begin on October 29, 2021 and will continue until the positions are filled.
The National Science Foundation has awarded the NHERI SimCenter a four year renewal that provides $12.75M to develop and promote advanced modeling and simulation technologies for natural hazards engineering researchers and practitioners to understand and quantify the effects of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other natural hazards on buildings, lifelines, and communities.
Kareem Awarded ASCE Newmark Medal. Ahsan Kareem, SimCenter coPI and Robert Moran Professor of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been recognized by the American Society of Civil Engineers for his outstanding contributions to structural engineering and engineering mechanics. His research has focused on a more complete understanding of wind effects on structures and has improved design procedures and building codes.
