Postdoctoral Position in Textile Simulation and Optimization


We are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow who has experience with developing and implementing computational algorithms for simulation and optimization in structural mechanics.
He or she will be involved in an interdisciplinary project for the development of a computational framework for the design of functional textiles. The objective is to develop and implement novel computational algorithms for a multi-scale and multi-physics simulation of functional textiles and fabrics, which will be at the core of a multifunctional design optimization framework. The position requires a deep understanding of structural mechanics concepts, as well as experience in algorithm development for computational simulation and optimization.

Desired qualifications:

  • PhD in Mechanical or Structural Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, or related areas.
  • Expertise in computational mechanics, numerical modelling and simulation.
  • Expertise in structural mechanics, constitutive and multi-scale modelling, homogenization methods.
  • Expertise in linear and nonlinear optimization is an advantage.
  • Experience with Finite Element and CAD software (Abaqus).
  • Strong programming skills, preferably in C++, MATLAB and Python.
  • A strong publication record with papers in top tier journals or conferences of the relevant fields.

About SUTD and DManD Centre:

The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) has established the SUTD Digital Manufacturing and Design (DManD) Centre through the support of the National Research Foundation (NRF). 
DManD has an ambitious long-term vision to create the frontiers of digital design and manufacturing by bringing together new ideas and methods in computational and engineering sciences, industrial and manufacturing engineering, technology-intensive design, architecture, and the humanities, arts, and social sciences in a way that facilitates the rapid transition of ideas to things.
