PhD Studentship available at Queen Mary, University of London in the SEMS
Research Studentship (PhD) in Computational Material Science: the topic is computational nano mechanics and concurrent multiscale methods for composites under impact loading.
The successful candidate will work under my supervision and will focus on coupling various length-scales mechanics (molecular dynamics-quasicontinuum-continuum) of nanoscale reinforcements of a polymeric matrix, with emphasis on their fracture properties.
The successful candidate will have to opportunity to work in a stimulating environment and a fast growing school, with expertise in Biomedical Engineering and Materials, Functional Materials and Modelling and Simulation in Engineering Systems.
The student is expected to develop computer codes in C/Fortran95 and proficiency in any of these languages is an essential requirement, along with experience in coding finite element methods.
Experience in coding PDE solvers with other discretization methods (particularly meshfree) or experience in programming/using molecular dynamics software will be highly desirable.
Candidates must have (or expect to have shortly) a good degree in engineering, physics, mathematics, chemistry, or related disciplines.
Strong communication skills (both written and oral) and a keen interest in the project topic are essential. The studentship is available for EU students only.
For informal enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
