ludovicnoels's picture


In the context of Belgian research project, the Universite catholique de Louvain, the Universite libre de Bruxelles, and the Universite de Liege are collaborating  to study from the atomic-scale to the macro-scale the thermomechanical failure of a new family of alloys.

PhD opportunity

The Computational & Multiscale Mechanics of Materials laboratory ( of the University of Liege is hiring a PhD student who will be responsible for the developments of

(i) a thermomechanical continuum damage model;
(ii) of a damage to crack transition model; and
(iii) the identification of the model parameters from lower scale models and from experimental measurements.

Your profile

We are looking for holders of an MSc title (or who will receive their MSc title before the start of the project) or students who have received at least 300 ECTS.

Candidates should have a sincere interest in mechanics of materials and computational mechanics. All computational models will be implemented from scratch, so you should be interested in numerical methods and programming and preferably have experience with both.

Start: Spring-Summer 2017

We offer

A PhD fellowship up to 4 years with an exciting research collaboration opportunity between different departments of different universities.
