Postdoc position in a  European project "Theoretical analysis, design and virtual testing of mechanical properties of titanium-based nanomaterials" will be available at the Materials Research Division, Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Technical University of Denmark.

Job description: As a postdoc, you will carry out numerical micromechanical modelling of deformation and strength of nanostructured titanium and nanostructured shape-memory alloys (Nitinol). The theme of the project is the numerical analysis of the effect of microstructures of nanostructured metallic materials on their deformation, strength and failure.

Qualifications:You are expected to have a PhD. degree in materials science, applied mechanics, mechanical engineering or related disciplines, and have an experience or good knowledge of mechanics of materials, computational micromechanics, finite element simulations (preferably, ABAQUS and PATRAN) as well as programming in a higher-level language (C, Fortran, Python). Knowledge and experience in modelling nanostructured materials and/or shape memory alloys will be advantageous.

Terms of employmen:You will be employed in accordance with the terms valid for scientific staff at Risø DTU. The period of employment is 2 years, with option of extension. The start of work is October 1st, 2011, or eventually later.

Application: If you are interested in the position, you should send your application (in English), including CV, list of publications (in peer reviewed journals), statement of interest, as well as names of referees to Dr. Leon Mishnaevsky Jr.
