A Future with purpose
At Arup we’re dedicated to sustainable development and to do socially useful work that has meaning. Our purpose, shared values and collaborative approach has set us apart for over 75 years, guiding how we shape a better world.
We solve the world's most complex problems and deliver what seems impossible, with curiosity and creativity. We’re a thriving and growing organization which offers you many possibilities to shape a better world, and your future.
This position will be with the Specialist Technology, Analytics and Research (STAR) team in Toronto, ON, a center of excellence for technical innovation in the built environment. We employ cutting edge technologies and methods to advance Arup into new markets which usher in a safer, healthier, sustainable and resilient future. We are a multi-disciplinary team with deep technical expertise in the built environment and a passion for increasing the resilience of communities. We can virtually simulate almost anything in the built environment, utilizing the best of numerical modelling (FEM, CFD), risk modeling and digital innovation to predict the physical, financial, and social impacts of natural hazards. Our team has expertise in structural dynamics, wind engineering, fluid mechanics and stress analysis.
Responsibilities of this specific role will include, but will not be limited to, the following:
- Undertake numerical analyses using first-principles methods to solve our clients’ most difficult challenges
- Conduct studies to understand the risk posed by natural hazards and the physical threat of climate change.
- Perform and report wind engineering studies to determine structural wind loads, pedestrian comfort, and microclimate characteristics.
- Perform and report linear and non-linear, static and dynamic structural finite element analysis, principally for structural and geo-engineering applications (e.g. earthquake, wind, and vibration analysis).
- Collaborate with other structural engineers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers, and risk consultants on innovative buildings and infrastructure projects.
- Work on defined tasks under the close supervision of a senior engineer.
We encourage candidates who have interest/proficiency in any of the following:
- Dynamics and seismic design, including performance-based design philosophies
- Materials science and materials engineering
- Computational fluid dynamics and fluid mechanics
- Wind engineering and extreme environmental loading
- Risk and resilience assessment and resilient based design across multiple natural hazards
