PhD Position in Atomistic Simulation of Superalloys

The Institute for General Material Properties of the Friedrich-Alexander-
Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is seeking outstanding candidates for a
collaborative research project with the Ruhr-Universität Bochum
(SFB/Transregio 103 ) on high-temperature deformation of superalloys.

The aim of this four-year project is to provide the scientific foundation for a new
generation of single-crystalline superalloys. For this purpose, atomistic
simulations will be carried out to determine the structure and properties of the
relevant defects (dislocations, stacking faults, heterophase boundaries) and to
study the interaction between these defects. The atomistic simulations will be
part of a multiscale modeling approach in close collaboration with experimental

The successful candidate will hold a degree in Materials Science, Physics,
Mechanical Engineering or Chemistry and have a solid background in physical
metallurgy and mechanical behavior of materials. Experience with numerical
simulations (preferably Molecular Dynamics) and scientific programming is
required. In addition, experience in the simulation of crystal defects on the
atomistic scale is highly desirable. Excellent oral and written communication
skills and the ability to work well in a dynamic and collaborative research
environment are essential.

The department of materials science and engineering of the Friedrich-
Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is Germany’s largest and home to the
center of excellence in Engineering of Advanced Materials (EAM). It is located
in the metropolitan area of Nuremberg (3.5 Mio inhabitants), in the northern part
of Bavaria.

Applicants are asked to submit their curriculum vitae and names and contact
