Opening for PhD student at Lille 1 university North France

The work involves working independently and collaboratively on "Investigating the fatigue life of different grades of polyethylene". The Phd student will be conducting heavy experimental work to fully characterize the fatigue property of Polyethylene. The modeling part is the second part of this work; which involves developing criterion and cumulative damage laws to predict the fatigue life of polyethylene under multiaxial loadings.

Post-doctoral Researcher in Advanced Modelling (TU Delft)

 Job description 

As systems become more complex and multidisciplinary, design of these systems also becomes more complicated. To assist design of such systems, physical models and computational tools are needed for their analysis and optimisation. The SOM group's research focus is on the development of such advanced (computational) design techniques, combined with the understanding and design of innovative mechanical devices in precision and microsystems engineering.
