Available PhD position at the Division of Mechanics at Lund University

Pär Olsson's picture

The Division of Mechanics at Lund University, Sweden, invites highly motivated and creative applicants for a PhD position oriented towards multiscale modelling of yielding and failure of materials subjected to harsh conditions in energy applications (e.g. components in fusion reactors, battery components, etc.). The research program focuses on improving the understanding of the yielding and failure mechanisms, with the ultimate goal to develop atomistically-informed continuum-based theoretical and computational models to predict yielding and failure in energy materials.

The project deals primarily with modelling with the specific modelling tools that will be utilized correspond primarily to classical atomistic modelling and finite element modelling (FEM).

The successful candidate is highly motivated and has a university degree on advanced level within a related field, such as a Master's degree in engineering physics, mechanical engineering, engineering mathematics or equivalent, good oral and written proficiency in English and knowledge or experience of programming, for instance Matlab, C and/or Fortran. Experience from working with classical molecular dynamics and/or finite element modelling is considered beneficial.

A more detailed job description and procedures for application can be found here.
