PhD position in multi-scale modeling for robust-design of vibrating micro sensors

 The project

This project aims at improving the efficiency of the manufacturing process of MEMS while decreasing the production cost by considering at the design stage the uncertainties in such a way that a range of the MEMS properties can be predicted for the manufactured products, which will be immune to factors that could adversely affect performance. This approach is called robust design and it is focused on achieving target reliability.

This position will focus on vibrating micro-sensors, with the development of an original micro-meso-macro stochastic finite element method to guarantee the statistical range of quality factor actually reached by the manufacturing process.
