PhD positions available at Polytechnique Montréal and McGill universities on shot peening with 5 aerospace companies
Ecole Polytechnique and McGill are seeking two PhD candidates for a large project aiming at understanding the effects of shot peening on the fatigue lives of aerospace components. The project involves 8 PhD students that will be working in close collaboration. The project is co-funded by the Canadian goverment and 5 leading aerospace companies located in Montréal. Some projects involve internships at these companies.
We are seeking two students for the following projects:
- Fatigue live prediction of Nickel superalloys submitted to shot peening (materials/metallurgy engineering background preferred, but mechanical engineering candidates can be considered as well)
- High strain rate behaviour of metal allows subjected to shot peenint (mechanical engineering background preferred, but materials/metallurgy engineering will be considered as well).
