Chosen candidates for both positions will be expected to conduct experimental, theoretical and/or numerical research in any area of fire safety. Particular emphasis will be given to areas that could positively impact the evolution of fire safety engineering in Slovenia. These areas could include but are not limited to material flammability, performance of building systems, fire protection systems and the holistic assessment of infrastructure fire safety.

Some relevant areas of research are:

  • numerical methods in fire (multiscale modelling, combustion process modelling, coupled thermal stress analysis),
  • hybrid and advanced experimental methods in fire (numerical/experimental coupling, methods for toxicity and ecotoxicity, façade fire),
  • emissions, toxicity and ecotoxicity in fire (linking bench-top methods to real scale fires, identifying the composition of combustion effluents, biomass burning),
  • fire research and structures (timber, geopolymers and composite structural elements in fire, pyrophoric carbonisation of structural elements),
  • fire research on materials (biobased composites, advanced thermal insulations, geopolymers).

The workplace is Logatec, a small town about 35 kilometres southwest of Slovenia's capital, Ljubljana. Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute - ZAG (Zavod za gradbeništvo Slovenije) will have two departments in Logatec, both placed in the new laboratory and office building.
