PhD Position in Atomistic Simulations of Microstructure-Induced Failure

The mechanical properties of alloys, and thus their susceptibility to damage and failure, are determined by their chemical composition as well as by their process-dependent microstructure. While microstructural modifications are well-known to improve, e.g., the yield stress or fatigue lifetime by orders of magnitudes, no thorough atomistic methods for systematic high-throughput exploration of the microstructure space have been performed yet. 

Funded position - Experimental reactive fluid mechanics for aerospace applications

We welcome applications for several PhD positions in reactive fluid mechanics for aerospace application. More specifically on the fire resistance of Li-Ion batteries and composites as well as on hydrogen combustion. The PhD position available involve experimental work but can also include a numerical simulation component. The student is therefore expected to carry out laboratory work, data analysis and numerical simulation tasks, with a focus to be identified according to individual interests and qualifications.
