Postdoc in Computational Plasticity and Micro-mechanics at Technical University of Denmark

Technical University of Denmark is offering postdoctoral associate position in sustainable development. The deadline for applying is February 03, 2020.

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoc position, within the field of computational plasticity and micro-mechanics at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark. The funding research project MicronCrash is granted by Villum Foundation Experiment 2019.

The strength and hardening of metal components increase with diminishing size, where in contrast the inertia forces under severe dynamic loading conditions decrease at small scales. What are the effects of such a scale dependency on crashworthiness? Can micron-scale strengthening prevent or stabilize buckling and collapse of small-scale structures subject to impact loadings? The MicronCrash project will focus on combining the microstructure length scale with the length scale set by material inertia to demonstrate such phenomena. The aim is to cement micron-scale dynamics, and the related length scale effects, as a key - yet untouched - research field that requires attention. A stimulating scientific environment will be created partly through workshops, conferences, and partly through collaborations and visits with/from highly ranked international researchers. Responsibilities and tasks Your main responsibilities will be to The successful candidate should hold a PhD degree within the field of Mechanical Engineering, Computational Mechanics, Mathematical modeling, Material Science or equivalent.

Please submit your online application no later than 3 February 2020 (23:59 local time). Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link “Apply online”, fill out the online application form, and attach all your materials in English in one PDF file.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply. DTU Mechanical Engineering covers the fundamental engineering disciplines within Solid mechanics, Fluid mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering, Energy systems and energy conversion, Materials and Surface Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering design and Product development. The department has a scientific staff of about 135 persons, 100 PhD students and a technical/administrative support staff of about 80 persons. DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Hans Christian rsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 11,500 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
