PhD position: Heterogeneous nucleation and microstructure formation in peritectic alloy systems.
The chair of Material- and Process Simulations at the University of Bayreuth is inviting applicants for a PhD position available within the project “Heterogeneous nucleation and microstructure formation in eritectic alloy systems” funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungs-gemeinschaft) for a period of one year – with the prospect of prolongation for further two years.
If you are interested in developing your scientific skills within industry and government supported projects towards industrially relevant questions, we can offer you an interesting environment in the field of computer aided materials design implemented in a top-level research framework. We are a dynamic team of multidisciplinary scientists and staff members. In our scientific work we cover the whole range from the basic concepts of physical modelling, implementation via enhanced methods of scientific supercomputing to industrially relevant questions of simulation based material design. This involves developing, implementing, and applying models at different scales, such as ab-initio, molecular, phase-field, and FEM models.
Applicants must hold a Master’s degree in a relevant field and have the documented ability to carry out a novel research. They should have gained fundamental experience in modelling and simulation or in related fields in mathematics, material science, physics/chemistry/biology or mechanical resp. construction engineering. Furthermore, they should have gained experience in thermodynamic calculations. Candidates with an outstanding research record in the desired fields are welcome. We especially encourage young scientists who just recently have accomplished their Master’s degree to apply.
1) A fully funded position as a PhD student (TV-L E13)
2) Training in leadership qualities in scientific groups
3) The possibility of qualifying for an academic career as professor.
The University of Bayreuth supports women in science and especially encourages them to apply. Handicapped applicants will be preferred if they are equally qualified.
