TYPE OF CONTRACTTemporary

EU RESEARCH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMMEH2020 / ERC
Open PhD and Post-Doc positions
(ERC Consolidator grant META-LEGO)
To apply, please send the requested material to email@example.com before June 30 2021
Two PhD (3 years each) and two Post-Doc positions (1,5 years each) are open (starting from September 2021) to work on the enriched continuum modeling of metamaterials and the conception of meta-structures that control elastic waves and recover energy. The work will be carried out at the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering of the TU University, Dortmund, Germany.
One PhD and one Post-Doc are mostly devoted to the development of the enriched model and its calibration on specific metamaterials (theoretical / use of Mathematica software), while the second PhD and Post-Doc are mostly devoted to the numerical implementation of the model on realistic meta-structures (use of COMSOL software).
Interactions among the two subjects are of course forecasted.
These positions are associated to an ERC Consolidator project (META-LEGO) and the salaries are higher than equivalent positions associated to other types of projects.
I am looking for serious, motivated and skilled students.
If you are convinced about your motivation, please send me a CV, a copy of your bachelor’s and Master’s transcripts and a motivation letter.
Merit will be the only criterion of choice!
Looking forward to meeting you soon in Dortmund.
PhD: a background in Mechanical Engineering (or equivalent) is a preferred criterion of selection.
Post-Doc: having already worked on the modeling of mechanical metamaterials is a preferred criterion of selection.
