IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for post-doctoral researchers willing to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF), call 2020. IMDEA Materials Institute has a long track record hosting MSCA fellows and has obtain outstanding success rates in recent calls of MSCA IF.

Interested candidates (if successful) will work under the supervision of Prof. Javier LLorca, Scientific Director of the Institute and head of the Mechanics of Materials group at IMDEA Materials Institute. The activities of the group are focused in the design of new materials through the combination of advanced simulations and processing. To this end, the processing-structure-properties relationships are established by the application of different computational tools (ab initio, cluster expansion, molecular mechanics, dislocation dynamics, phase field, computational thermodynamics, computational mechanics, etc.) and multiscale modeling strategies (transition state theory, homogenization, etc.). A key feature of this strategy is the use of novel in situ nanoscale characterization techniques to determine the properties of the phases and interfaces in the material at the nm and µm scale. So, simulations are fed with experimental values independently obtained and free of “adjusting” parameters. This information is used to design materials with novel properties that are manufactured by means of advanced processing techniques (including 3D printing of metallic alloys and composites, magnetron sputtering, etc.).

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST:

Interested candidates please send your resume and a brief outline of the proposed research project (maximum 2 pages) via email to Prof. Javier Llorca (javier.llorca@imdea.org) before June 15th 2020.

DESCRIPTION OF THE MSCA IF:

The purpose of the MSCA Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) is to support the mobility of researchers and help attract promising foreign researchers to work in Europe. The grant typically covers two years' salary, research costs and overheads for the host institution.

The mobility rules require that the researcher has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, in the case of IMDEA Materials Institute) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline (September 9th September 2020 for call 2020). Exceptions to this apply under the career restart and reintegration panels.

The scheme particularly supports the return and (re)integration of European researchers from outside Europe and those who have previously worked here, as well as researchers displaced by conflict outside the EU and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. It also promotes the career restart of individual researchers who show great potential.
