Postdoc position in cutting edge optimization for metal machining, Aarhus University, Denmark

Ramin Aghababaei's picture

Applications are invited for a 2.5-year postdoctoral position at Aarhus University, Denmark. The focus of the project will be on shape optimization of cutting edge for improving milling process of stainless steel. This research opportunity broadly involves the development of physics-based computational approaches and systematic simulations for understanding the micromechanics of material removal from metallic surfaces.  This project is part of a big Grand Solution industrial project, which is funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark. Therefore, close and regular collaborations with industries will be seen as a natural part of the research activities. The ultimate goal of the project is to fabricate optimized milling tools for steel machining. 

An ideal candidate must have a strong background in computational mechanics, with a good knowledge of nonlinear materials behavior and failure mechanisms, i.e. plasticity and fracture. Experience with numerical methods such as finite element and/or molecular dynamics are required. Knowledge of metal machining processes will be a plus.

We offer a competitive salary and work package, access to state-of-the-art research equipment, close collaboration with local and international industries and participation in international conferences and workshops.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Ramin Aghababaei (aghababaei@eng.au.dk) for further information. The job advertisement and application procedure can be found here:
