Postdoctoral position on multiscale modeling of microstructural development

IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for a post-doctoral researcher
(PhD in Materials Engineering, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering, Computational Materials Science) (Ref: PD02-VIR) to work in the research project VIRMETAL (virtual design, virtual processing and virtual testing of metallic materials) funded by an Advanced Grant of the European Research Council. Research activities will be focused in the development of multiscale modeling strategies –based on the phase-field method– to simulate the microstructural development during solidification as well as during thermo-mechanical treatments in Al and Mg alloys.
