PhD-Position in Initial Training Network (ITN): FE-Modelling of electromechanically coupled materials

Marc-Andre Keip's picture

Discover the NANOMOTION World as an Early Stage Researcher (PhD student) in an EU-wide program on “Nanoelectromechanical Motion in Functional Materials (NANOMOTION)”!

The individual project:

“Finite-element modelling of electromechanically coupled materials”

will be hosted at University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany),, with secondment to the University College Dublin (Ireland).

The ITN NANOMOTION is a highly interrelated network of groups throughout Europe tackling the challenges in nanomaterial property characterization using scanning probe techniques. Regular workshops and mutual visits make this program attractive for young researchers interested in becoming experts in various Scanning Probe Microscopy methods applied to functional materials.

Dear Sir,


I’m a postgraduate student from Shanghai University of Engineering Science in China and I will graduate at March of year 2012. My English name is F.Y.Ma, it is the abbreviated of the Pinyin from my Chinese name. During my undergraduate education, I mainly studied Engineering Mechanics in Taiyuan University of Science and Technology, which is cradle of engineering in Heavy Machinery domain. Now I’m studying Automobile Engineering in Shanghai University of Engineering Science, my main interests concentrate on the acoustics, vibration of vehicle, hydraulic and simulation. In additional, I am a technical support engineer of ACTRAN and MpCCI in China. I'm interested in build the modeling of mechanism and application of the coupling acoustics problem that interacted with Biological, Acoustics, Mechanics, and Electromagnetics etc. My study interests are coincide with you or based on your research achievements. So I want to apply a PH.D position and study at University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), to follow you, to learn more, to know more, to find more.  

I will introduce myself from the following aspects. Firstly, in the publication research papers, there are fifteen papers have published or accepted by the first author in these two years, one of these papers will be published by SCI journal like ‘Sensor Letters and five have been published or will be published by EI journal like ‘Journal of Vibration and Shock’.

Secondly, in the projects, I have participated with a Chinese National Natural Science Foundation projects in major of Hydraulic. Independently complete a CAE analysis of rubber bearing for Shanghai Volkswagen vehicle Co. by Abaqus software. Independently complete a NVH analysis of dashboard for Shanghai J.Y.(Group) Co. Collaboration and mainly complete a fluid-structure interaction heat exchanger analysis of water jacket in engine for one vehicle business. And there are six small projects of NVH analysis and CAE analysis have independently completed by me for Shanghai Xinfu Motorcycle Co., Ltd. Of SAIC. The ability of use application software is concluding as: I can fluent use the engineering software like Abaqus, Fluent, Actran, MpCCI, Marc, Nastran, Patran, LMS.Virtual.lab et al. In Chinese, I am a moderator of Simwe forum, China vibration Alliance, China CAE Alliance et al. These network forums are mainly platform of students and engineering to study the simulation technical. Moreover, I had created the Simulation Technology Department and as the first president of this department in our University. The mainly aid is to popularize the simulation technical to students and improve the simulation level of society.In the future, I prefer to become a scientist of simulation or mechanics, so I need to learn related knowledge, advanced methods, notions, and the ways of thinking follow you. Being an exchange student is an ideal way to help me realizing this dream faster.That’s all, thank you very much! If you haven’t the plan to enroll PH.D students, please introduce me to your colleagues.Best regards!Yours sincerely
