Post-doctoral, Research Associate positions in Failure Micromechanics

We have two research positions, available in November 2015, in the area of micromechanics of advanced structural steels. The first one is a post-doctoral research fellow (RF) position. An ideal candidate for this position must possess a PhD in mechanical engineering or related field with a strong background in computational materials mechanics. Experience of developing mesoscale methods such as dislocation dynamics or crystal plasticity and mesoscale fracture mechanics will be a definite plus.
