Description

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 Segurado, head of the Multiscale Materials Modelling (MMM) group at IMDEA Materials Institute and Professor in Solid Mechanics at the Technical University of Madrid. The research lines in which the MMM group is currently active, and in which the candidate could work are:

  • Crystal plasticity and polycrystalline homogenization
  • Micromechanics based Fatigue and Fracture simulation
  • Higher order constitutive models: gradient plasticity, non-local approaches
  • FFT based homogenization
  • Coupled multiphysical problems

The MMM group is very active. It has developed own codes (FFTMAD and CAPSUL), some of them being now licensed and commercial. The group publishes many papers per year, participates in several EU projects (FET-open, RISE, NMBP…) and has a large network of international collaborators: UCLA, Los Alamos, Texas A&M, Eccole Polytechnique, etc. Working in the MMM will also allow collaborations with other research groups in IMDEA Materials with expertise in Experimental Micromechanics (in situ SEM and TEM test, EBSD, nano-indentation,3D tomography, etc) and alternative simulation techniques (calphad and phase-field modeling of solidification, DFT, atomistic, machine learning techniques, 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 Segurado (javier.segurado@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.
