Hirschberger's picture

The Graduate School MUSIC ("Multiscale Methods for Interface Coupling") and the
Institute of Continuum Mechanics at Leibniz Universität Hannover invites
applications for a position as a

Research Staff Member in Computational Mechanics

(Salary scale E13 TV-L)

to be appointed on 1 April 2010.

The position is embedded into the Junior Research Group on „Multiscale Modelling of
Materials and Interfaces with Size Effec
ts” and is initially limited to 1 year.

Research project
The research project focuses on the computational materials modelling of metals
microstructure. Within the project, polycrystalline materials shall be
micromechanically investigated by means of dislocation-based crystal plasticity. The
goal is to gain a clearer understanding in the nonlocal behaviour and to obtain useful
models for the prediction of the inelastic response, which become relevant in
applications such as micro-manufactured structures.

Employment conditions
The requirement for this position is a diploma or masters degree in engineering,
materials science, physics or applied mathematics. A strong background in continuum
mechanics and the finite element method as well as an interest in materials science
are desired. The successful candidate will be a PhD student in the Graduate School

The Leibniz Universität Hannover aims, in particular, to promote women within the
scope of the statutory provisions and, hence, emphatically invites qualified women to
apply for this position. Severely disabled applicants are given preferential
consideration in the event of equal qualification. The University welcomes
applications by researchers from abroad.
