Postdoctoral position in micromechanics of composite fatigue at Risø DTU

Leon Mishnaevsky's picture

Applications are invited from
suitably qualified candidates for a Postdoctoral position in the framework of a
Danish-Chinese research project "High reliability of large wind turbines via
computational micromechanics based enhancement of materials performances"
at  Risoe DTU.

As a postdoc, you will carry out numerical micromechanical modelling of
strength, damage and fatigue processes in fiber reinforced UD polymer
composites, hybrid composites and nanocomposites. The theme of the project is
the numerical analysis of the effect of microstructures of various groups of
composites on their fatigue resistance and lifetime, and computational design
of microstructures of new composite materials for wind energy applications.

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 composite materials, damage mechanics, computational
micromechanics, finite element simulations (preferably, ABAQUS) as
well as programming in a higher-level language (C, Fortran, Python). Knowledge
and experience in multiscale modelling and fatigue simulations will be

EMPLOYMENT: You will be employed in accordance with the terms valid for
scientific staff at Risø DTU. The period of employment is 2 years, with the
possibility of 1 year extension. The start of work is November 1st 2011
(later date is also possible).

you are interested in the position, you should send your application (in
English), including CV, list of publications, statement of interest, as well as
reference letters or names of referees to Leon Mishnaevsky Jr., Senior
Scientist, Dr. habil., Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy,
Technical University of Denmark, 4000 Roskilde, Denmark. Email: Applications are invited as soon as possible, and should be
sent before August 15, 2011.
