I am seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Phase-Field modelling of fracture to join the Design of Machines group at the Polytechnic Engineering and Architecture Department (DPIA) of the University of Udine. The position is fixed-term for 1 year with funding provided by the European Social Fund (ESF). 

The project will include, but not limited to, the development and verification of the Phase-Field method for the prediction of cracks nucleation and propagation using a commercial FEM code (e.g. Comsol). More in particular, the problems of interest will be the analysis of strongly heterogeneous materials in the contest of quasi-static and fatigue loading modes. Aimed at verifying the developed numerical models, the holder of the fellowship will have the opportunity to be involved in the design and execution of experimental tests at the laboratory of Advanced Materials of the DPIA. The appointee will be able to work closely with undergraduate and graduate research students.

The applicant should possess a doctorate in a relevant field with experience in FEM modelling & fracture mechanics and demonstrate willing to learn and put into practice experimental techniques. Strong interpersonal skills are required alongside the ability to work on a collaborative project.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Enrico Salvati, DPhil (
