Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Czech Technical University in Prague


Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Computational Impact Dynamics for Automotive and Aerospace Applications



We are seeking a highly talented and motivated researcher to work within our impact dynamics group-oriented at experimental and numerical investigation of the mechanical response of 3D printed metamaterials (SLS printed stainless steel, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys) at high rates of strain. This post is based in Prague, Czech Republic and is available for 2 years.


You will be expected to work within a research group of Professor Ondrej Jirousek in a strong group of young and motivated researchers.


The aim of the project is to develop a new constitutive model for Finite Element modeling of yielding and failure of 3D printed metamaterials which would allow for FE simulations of impact under moderate and high strain rates. The holder of the postdoc position will be a member of a strong research group of young and highly motivated scientists, mainly Ph.D. students and young postdocs.


The the candidate is expected to hold a doctorate (or be very near to its completion) in engineering, materials science, mathematics, physics or a related discipline; or, alternatively, have a good first degree and/or significant relevant industrial experience. Experience with SHPB (Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar) experimental technique for characterization of the behavior of materials at high strain rates and/or evaluation of measured data for constitutive modeling is advantageous. Aside from the constitutive modeling and FE simulations you will be expected to analyze and interpret high strain rate and gas gun experiments. Knowledge in material modeling, data acquisition systems, development of novel diagnostics and apparatuses in experimental mechanics, temperature and environmental conditioning of materials are also beneficial.


Informal inquiries may be addressed to prof. Ondrej Jirousek


You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.


The applicants should send the following materials to and place postdoc applicant k618 in the subject of the email with following:


  • Cover letter (summarizing professional background, achievements, and motivations)

  • CV (including list related courses, publications, presentations, projects, language skills and other relevant information)

  • Transcripts

  • At least one representative publication

  •  2 letters of reference


Only applications received before 12.00AM on August 31, 2020 will be considered.
