OFFER DESCRIPTION

Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship-program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

Within this project, the candidate will develop simulation techniques and tools for large lattice and beam networks with applications in the modeling of stiff and soft materials and metamaterials. The unifying approach will be that of the variationally-based quasicontinuum method developed by Rokoš and co-workers, which we will extend by (1) robust arc-length-type control strategies and finite-strain beam formulations to model (2) two-dimensional pattern formation in soft porous metamaterials and (3) out-of-plane patterning of soft textured surfaces. Besides, the new arc-length formulation holds notable potential for other numerical schemes, such as the finite element method, and in modeling of fracture and damage.

The project will be conducted in collaboration with Ondřej Rokoš, an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, and Milan Jirásek, a Full Professor at the host institution.
