Looking for an open PhD position in Computational Mechanics

Dear all,

I'm currently achieving a Mines ParisTech post-master degree in computational mechanics at the Center for Metal Forming (CEMEF) in France. I'm looking to a career in computational mechanics software development. To reach this goal, I'm looking out for a PhD in this field. I'm more interested in numerical methods (software engineering) than in rheologic approach of materials. Remeshing methods, crack growth modeling, crash analysis, parallel computing or multidisciplinary optimization are attractive fields I would be motivated to work on.
