Research Associate Position
Wood Chair (Cátedra Madera)
Department of Building Construction, Services and Structures
Universidad de Navarra (UNAV)
Members of the Wood Chair of the University of Navarra in Pamplona will be working with partners from across Europe the InnoCrossLam Project (ERA-NET Cofund Action “ForestValue 2017”), to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the construction with CLT panels in new building applications and in multifunctional contexts, with the aim at developing new practice-oriented solutions for demanding design situations, covering topics such as flexible floor plans, cantilevered structures, long-span systems, efficient joining techniques, efficient mounting and demounting of building systems, and the potential for additional functionality.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time contract position as Research Associate until February 2022.

Research Associate Position


“Timber Construction” Research Group

Members of the UPM’s “Timber Construction” Research Group in Madrid will be working with partners from across the InFutUReWood Project (ERA-NET Cofund Action “ForestValue 2017”), to develop a more comprehensive understanding of: new ways to reuse and recycle timber and engineered wood products from demolition, especially into construction products; volumes, dimensions and quality of material that could currently be recovered and reused and which might be recoverable in the future following the implementation of design for deconstruction principles; and problems that current standards for building design, and timber product manufacture, require strength grading on a basis that is not compatible with reclaimed wood, and similarly varied new timber from less usual sources. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time 23 months contract position as Research Associate, to work with members of the “Timber Construction” Research Group.

InFutUReWood Project 

InFutUReWood is a consortium of researchers and industrial partners in the fields of engineering, architecture and wood science from Sweden, Finland, Spain, Slovenia, Germany, Ireland and the UK who intend to identify key problem areas and propose technical and methodological solutions for ensuring that the wood used in construction is fully recovered and reused at demolition, to shift current practices of landfilling recovered wood or burning it for energy.
