Post-doctoral research fellowship

Numerical modelling of vibration isolation in railway
lines by means of elastomeric materials

Politècnica de Catalunya - BarcelonaTech

Duration: 2 years 

The research project

We are looking for a post-doctoral research fellow to work on
a project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN).
The goal of the project is to optimise vibration isolation devices in railway
lines, with an emphasis on elastomeric materials based on recycled rubber.


We seek candidates with a strong background in computational
mechanics and numerical methods. Desirable expertise includes structural
dynamics, visco-elasticity and homogenisation methods.

The research position

Two years of post-doc position starting on January 2012 are
funded by the project. The Laboratori de Càlcul Numèric ( is a very active
research group located in the vibrant city of Barcelona.

Application and selection procedures

Applicants should send their CV, a statement of interest and
addresses of two referees to Prof. Antonio Rodríguez-Ferran (

The applicants will be evaluated in terms of their academic record and the adequacy of their background to the
