PhD Position: Solid Mechanics/Biomechanics at KTH-Stockholm

A four to five-year PhD position focusing on the analysis of multi-scale phenomena in diseased blood vessels including atherosclerotic plaques has recently been opened at KTH Solid Mechanics. The position is fully supported by the Swedish Research Council.

The candidate has a genuine interest in nonlinear solid mechanics, constitutive modeling and in the nonlinear finite element method. In order to better understand mechanobiology, interest in cell biology is welcome to consider the interaction between mechanical, biological and biochemical components. A suitable background is a MSc exam in Mechanics, Biophysics, Engineering Physics, Applied Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering or a corresponding education.
