Postdoctoral Position in computational solid mechanics at Aarhus University, Denmark

Ramin Aghababaei's picture

Applications are invited for a 2 year postdoctoral position with a background in computational solid mechanics. The focus of the project will be on micromechanics of failure in materials surface with applications in tribology and micro-machining. This research opportunity broadly involves development of physics-based computational approaches and systematic simulations for understanding the process of surface failure under different loading condition (e.g. indenting, scratching and sliding contact) as a function of surface geometry and material properties at various scales, ranging from atomic to continuum.

An ideal candidate must have a strong background in computational mechanics, with a good knowledge of nonlinear solid mechanics and failure mechanisms, i.e. plasticity and fracture. Experience with molecular dynamics and finite element/discrete element simulations are required. Knowledge of tribology-related researches (i.e. friction and wear) will be a plus. The successful candidate is expected to conduct an ambitious research program and engage in the interdisciplinary research with local and international groups. Collaboration with industry will be seen as a natural part of the research activities. The initial appointment will be for one year with a possible one year extension depending on the performance.  The position is available from 1, January 2018 or as soon as possible hereafter.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Assistant Prof. Ramin Aghababaei ( for further information. The job advertisement and application procedure can be found here:
