montero's picture

Dear colleagues,


Universidad Loyola Andalucía (Seville, Spain) is currently offering a PhD position within the “VirtualBats” project, starting in June 2020 at the Department of Engineering. The aim of this project is to develop a multiscale multiphysical simulation platform for the virtual design of batteries at the material and component levels. The main goal of the PhD project is to implement a coupled thermo-diffusive-mechanical finite element model within the open-source computing platform FEniCS. This thesis will be co-supervised by F. Montero-Chacón (Loyola) and J. Segurado (IMDEA Materials).



  • BS + MS [equivalent to 240 + 60 ECTS] in the areas of materials science and engineering, continuum mechanics, mathematics or equivalent.
  • Certified B2 English Level
  • Programming skills (Python, C++, Matlab)
  • Finite element modeling skills in commercial (Abaqus, Ansys, Comsol) and/or open-source (FEniCS).
