Postdoc (m/f) on fracture toughness of high performance composite materials

Your tasks: The main objective of this position is to improve the fracture toughness of high performance composite materials. You are expected to plan and implement manufacturing and processing experiments with carbon fibre thermoset prepregs and characterise their fracture properties. Furthermore, you will plan respective processing equipment and thoroughly investigate fracture mechanics of composites. This also includes the development of according numerical analyses and simulations. Next to project management tasks you are also going to be involved in the supervision of students‘ projects.

Your profile: You have an excellent Master‘s degree or PhD in mechanical engineering or materials science as well as practical experience in processing and fracture mechanics of composite materials and polymers. Solid know-how in CAD, LabVIEW/MATLAB and/or in numeric simulation tools like Abaqus or ANSYS is advantageous. Furthermore, you have an excellent command of German and English. You are highly motivated to work in an interesting, scientific environment. You have an independent work method and the ability to work in a team. FHNW strongly encourages applications by women.

Please send us your application before 30 October 2014 online via the respective announcement on to Alberto Tagliatti, HR Officer. For further information please contact Prof. Clemens Dransfeld, Head of Institute, P +41 76 395 86 50.

I tried applying online as requested but the website keeps giving an error message about the date format when I try to add my educational background info. I tried any possible format that I could imagine but the web site keeps rejecting it. It will be greate if the website includes a note about the proper format. In the meanwhile, is there any other way that I can send you my CV for this position, like an email address?





I got the same problem. Could you please give us your e-mail address, so we can send our CV to you?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
