Two PhD candidates to carry out a PhD in Computational Mechanics and Materials Science. IMDEA Materials Institute

Más información

DESCRIPTION
The candidates will carry out a PhD in Computational Mechanics and Materials Science.  The candidates will develop computational models to study the mechanical response polymer-based lattice structures fabricated by additive manufacturing (AM). The PhD will be done in the framework of the European FET-Open project MOAMM (Multi-scale Optimization for Additive Manufacturing of fatigue resistant shock-absorbing MetaMaterials).

The PhDs will be focused on (1) The development of constitutive equations for the non-linear mechanical response of the AM-fabricated polymers (2) Computational homogenization of the response of the lattice materials using both finite elements and FFT based homogenization (3) The uncertainty quantification of the geometrical and material parameters in the behavior at the microscale (4) Topological optimization at two scales: lattice and final part microstructures.

The PhD candidates will work in collaboration with IMDEA-Materials Institute (Spain), University of Liege (Belgium) and Catholique University of Louvain (Belgium) and the positions will imply research stages between the different institutions.

The candidates will learn advanced concepts in materials modeling, nonlinear computational mechanics, fracture and fatigue of polymers, finite elements, FFT solvers, optimization, etc, and gain hands-on experience in scientific programming for multi-scale modeling. The candidates will get experience in a technological field with high employability.

REQUIREMENTS
The optimum candidate should have a Master (or finish it this academic year) in Mechanical engineering, Applied Mathematics, Materials science, Physics or similar.

In addition, knowledge of some of the following fields will be positive:

Continuum Mechanics, finite elements.
Programming skills (python, C++,  fortran).
Materials science.
High level of English is mandatory.

CONDITIONS
Starting date: Available immediately; open until filled.
Full time contract including social security coverage.
Enrolment in an academic PhD program.
International research stage.
Besides on-the-job technical training, IMDEA Materials Institute is committed to train the Institute’s scientists and staff in “soft” or transversal skills. See the available training here.
