Post-doc available on interactive simulation of cutting - Strasbourg/Luxembourg/Cardiff

One post-doctoral fellowship is available in RealTcut, funded by the Strasbourg Institute of Advanced Study
 The goal of the post-doc is to extend the preliminary results which can be seen here: and will appear shortly in the journal Medical Image Analysis
 The successful candidate will be based in Strasbourg in the ICube laboratory
 She/he will be collaborating intensively with the University of
Luxembourg, where I am based and with Cardiff University, where I hold
an adjunct professorship.
 In Strasbourg, the collaboration will be with the ICube laboratory and with the SHACRA team led by Stéphane Cotin.
 In Luxembourg, the collaboration will be with the other ERC Starting
Grant-funded RealTcut Post-docs, in particular Dr. Jack Hale.
 The successful candidate will have the chance to join a dynamic team of
about 15 researchers at all level, and to contribute to the supervision
of PhD students working in related areas.
 There are possibilities to extend the contract beyond the 48 months
through applications to the Fonds National de la Recherche du Luxembourg
(, or through the ERC Starting Grant (RealTcut).

The candidate MUST be an expert C++ programmer.
The candidate is expected to have demonstrated successful research in
computational biomechanics, if possible at the interface between
computer science, mathematics and mechanics.

The candidate should have proven experience in at least two of the following technical areas:
- coding iterative solvers and preconditioners on advanced architectures (GPUs, MPI, etc.)
- real-time simulation
- coding advanced mesh generators
- simulation of evolving discontinuities
- image to mesh transition in biomechanics
- domain decomposition methods in mechanics

AND have experience in at least one of the following general fields:
- algebraic model reduction for non-linear problems
- a posteriori error estimation for non-linear problems
- advanced numerical methods (extended finite element methods, mesh free methods, Cartesian grids)
- multiscale methods
- constitutive modelling of soft tissues

it would be a plus if the candidate was proficient in SOFA and had some command of either French or German.

The general research themes in the ERC project include:

- advanced discretisation (XFEM, meshless, immersed boundaries etc.)
- multiscale methods for fracture/cutting
- model reduction techniques (POD, reduced basis, morphing)

The successful candidate will join a dynamic team, based in three
geographical locations (Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Cardiff), formed of a
dozen PhD students and post-docs and will have ample opportunities to
develop their career through doctoral supervision, grant applications,
