Three PhD positions and two postdoc positions in computational mechanics of materials

Lucia Nicola's picture

Applications are invited for three PhD and two postdoc positions in the area of computational mechanics of materials at the University of Padova, Italy.

The successful candidates will work at building a multiscale model for the study of contact, friction and solid lubrication between metal surfaces, sponsored by an ERC consolidator grant.

We seek candidates with a master degree in materials science, mechanical engineering, physics or a related field. A strong interest in fundamental research and good communication skills in the English language are expected. A good computational background is preferred and an interest in modeling the mechanical behavior of materials is required. The projects are fully computational; candidates interested in carrying out experimental research should therefore refrain from applying.

To apply for the positions please send your detailed CV, transcripts, a two-page summary of your Master/PhD thesis, two reference letters and a statement of purpose to Lucia Nicola:

I will start reviewing PhD applications on April 1, but you can apply also after this date, until the end of May. Postdocs can apply all year long.

I'm thinking about applying for this opening. Need a few years to learn Italian.
