Postdoc position: Graphite dispersion mechanisms in Fe-C-Si alloys

The Chair of Material and Process Simulation at the University of Bayreuth is inviting applicants for a post-doctoral position available within the project "Mechanisms of graphite dispersion in Fe-C-Si alloys", which is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) for a period of three 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. Our dynamic team consists of international multidisciplinary scientists and staff members, which cover a wide 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.

More specifically this project will follow two research objectives: the scientific goal is to focus on the clarification of the basic mechanisms of graphite dispersions in Fe-C-Si alloys for subsequent graphite structure optimization; the technical objective will be the so-called "structural design", or how the graphite structure in cast iron can be improved by optimizing the process parameters. Applicants must have a PhD degree in a relevant field and perform the documented ability of a novel research platform. You should have basic experience in modeling and simulation, or in related fields in mathematics, material sciences, physics / chemistry / biology or mechanical, respectively civil engineering. They should also have experience in thermodynamic calculations. Applicants with an outstanding research record in the desired fields are welcome. We encourage especially young scientists who have recently completed their doctoral degree.

We offer:
1) A position as a postdoc (TV-L E13)
2) Training in leadership skills in scientific boards
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.
