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 Dr. Damien Tourret, head of the Modeling and Simulation of Materials Processing group at IMDEA Materials Institute. Activities of the group revolve around linking materials processing routes to microstructure formation, particularly in metals and alloys for structural applications. The group develops and uses a broad range of computational models to simulate microstructural development across different length scales, such as atomistics (e.g. Molecular Dynamics), phase-field, and various multiscale approaches for crystal growth in solidification processing. A strong activity in the group consists in coupling models across different length scales and across different physical phenomena. As such, most projects involve collaborations with other groups at the Institute, for instance linking microstructure to mechanical properties using crystal plasticity theory or finite element modeling of processing (e.g. 3D printing), as well as internal and external collaborations with experimentalists providing essential data to validate and improve models.

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 Dr. Damien Tourret (damien.tourret@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.
