Multiscale Methods for Fracture

are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow for a Research Project on
multiscale modeling of material failure. The Postdoctoral Fellow should
have done his/her PhD preferably in Computational Material Science or
otherwise in Computational Mechanics. A strong background in Molecular
Dynamics, multiscale methods such as the bridging domain or bridging
scale method and finite element methods is required.

objective of the research project is to gain a better understanding of
the phenomenon material failure through multiscale analysis. We aim to
develop and validate multiscale methods that bridge the molecular level
with the continuum level. On the continuum level, the extended finite
element will be used that facilitates crack growth without remeshing.

Post-Doc will have the opportunity to work with a group of 3
PhD-students. The chair of Computational Mechanics currently consists of
10 PhD students and 3 Post-Docs. More information can be obtained
directly from the Institute's homepage

Postdoctoral fellow will be paid a full salary according to the German
regulations (TVL13, level 3 or above, see and the position is for a
period of 3 years. There is the possibility to obtain a habilitation,
the highest degree in the German academic system. If you are interested
in the position, please submit your application documents to Prof.
