PhD position available in Computational Mechanics of Materials @ Arts et Métiers-ParisTech

Justin Dirrenberger's picture

A PhD scholarship is available at Paris Institute of Technology (ParisTech) to work on the computational mechanics of crystalline polymers.

See the file attached for description.

This project is conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Molecular and Macromolecular Studies / Polish Academy of Sciences in Lodz, Poland.

The successful candidate should have obtained a Master's degree (or equivalent) with a strong background in computational mechanics, materials science, mechanical engineering or any related field; although prior knowledge of the French language is not mandatory, spoken and written English proficiency is needed. An interest for numerics and polymer science is expected from the candidate.

Regarding the work environment, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers is one of the top French engineering school. It has trained over 85,000 engineers since its foundation in 1780 by the Duke of Rochefoucauld Liancourt, and has since then been a founding member of ParisTech. In 2007, the school adopted the brand name Arts et Métiers-ParisTech. The PIMM laboratory is located within the historical site of the school, at the border of the Latin quarter, in the very heart of Paris (see a map here).

The employment contract is for 3 years full-time, starting from October 2015. Salary is about 1400-1800 EUR per month, depending on the will of the candidate to take on teaching responsabilities (64 hours per year).

An admissible application should include a detailed CV of the candidate, a full list of publications, a cover letter, and grade transcripts from prior education (BSc and MSc, or equivalent).

Applications should be sent via e-mail to J. Dirrenberger (justin.dirrenberger - at - before May 15th 2015
