Please see the job-announcement attached, for a better format.
PhD or Postdoc position
The Interdisciplinary Centre for Advanced Materials Simulation (ICAMS) is a new research centre at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. At ICAMS an interdisciplinary team of scientists from engineering, materials science, chemistry, physics and mathematics is working on the development and application of a new generation of simulation tools for multi-scale materials modelling.
In the department "Micromechanical modeling of macroscopic material behaviour" at the Ruhr-University Bochum the group "Discrete Micromechanics and Fracture" is expanding in the direction of fatigue of metals. In this area, the atomic behavior and the interaction of atomic-lattice effects plays a dominant role. Modeling both effects in a combined model is a significant scientific step. We therefore are looking for a person to work on the project: “Development of a discrete Multiscale model and its application to fatigue crack initiation.”
We are looking for a PhD student or Postdoc to work on the further development of multiscale methods. We welcome the application of candidates with expertise in any mathematical, scientific, or engineering discipline who have a strong commitment to research on multiscale methods for the design of materials. Experience in working with Linux environments and code development in C or C++ is beneficial. Familiarity with atomistic- or dislocation based techniques is not a prerequisite for application.
Qualified candidates are asked to submit their Curriculum Vitae before July 19th, 2009. Initially, the position is limited to two years, but there will be the possibility for extension. For further information and submission of your application, please contact:
