3-year PhD position at University Paris-Est on multiscale cracking modeling in 3D printed glass-polymer composites
We are looking for highly motivated PhD candidates to study the multiscale cracking in 3D printed glass-polymer composites. The main objectives of the project are to develop a multiscale numerical modeling framework for cracking in PA12/glass beads samples obtained by additive manufacturing (Selective Laser Sintering, SLS) and to combine these numerical tools with experimental 3D imaging and in-situ mechanical testing techniques to identify the models. The PhD is part of a funded national research project involving several academic institutions and an industrial partner.
The candidate should have a MS degree or equivalent in engineering or applied mathematics with good background in continuum and computational mechanics. Good skills in programming are required. Some background in image processing would also be appreciated.
The starting date is flexible, from April to the fall of 2017.
Interested applicants are encouraged to send a file including a CV with a list of up to 3 references, a short (max one page) statement describing your past research experience if any and interests, and your academic transcripts, to Prof. J. Yvonnet (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
