PhD Position in Complex Systems, Fluid and Solid Mechanics

Applicants are invited to apply for PhD position at University of Copenhagen. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. The deadline for applying is March 07, 2015.

The position involves basic research in complex systems with a focus on fluid and solid mechanics. A central objective is the derivation and numerical implementation of mesoscale models of deformation in multiphase systems. In particular, the deformation of porous materials caused by the transport of reactive fluids in the pore-space and (re) crystallization processes at the pore interface will be of interest. The successful applicant will be a part of the NanoHeal network (see below) and of the complexity group at the Niels Bohr Institute. The successful applicant will benefit from the experience within in the group on the finite element method, lattice Boltzmann method and phase field models.
Application Requirements
We seek a person with strong motivation and the ability to define his/her own research questions within the framework of the NanoHeal Project. The applicant must hold a master degree (or equivalent) within Physics, Chemistry, Geochemistry, Engineering, Materials Science or similar and be comfortable with physics, chemistry and mathematics. The applicant must have excellent written and oral communication skills in English. At the time of recruitment, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account. Furthermore, the applicant should be willing to have extended secondments at other NanoHeal partner institutions during the project. The applicants must, at the time of recruitment by the host organisation, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of her/his research career and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.
