Post-doctoral position in Computational Stochastic Mechanics, Nantes, France

Post-doctoral position - Stochastic computational techniques to deal with uncertainties on the geometry in structural analysis

The post-doctoral student will join the pole "Structures and Couplings" of the Research Institute en Civil Engineering and Mechanics (GeM), Nantes, France (Nantes University, Ecole Centrale Nantes, CNRS UMR 6183)

We have recently been awarded a Research Project by the French National Research Agency. This project addresses theorical and numerical developments in the field of stochastic computational mechanics. The main goal of this project is to develop a robust computational technique to deal with uncertainties on the geometry in structural analysis. The proposed methodology lies on the extension of the Extended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) into the stochastic framework and the development of efficient computational techniques for solving stochastic systems.

Duration : one year, possibly two 

Qualifications : We seek for candidates with a good background in numerical methods in computational mechanics. An experience in eXtended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) and/or in Stochastic Finite Element Methods (SFEM) would be greatly appreciated. Additionally, outstanding communication skills are required for this position.

Application procedure : Applicants should contact :
Anthony Nouy
Institut de recherche en Génie Civil et Mécanique (GeM)
2 rue de la Houssinière
BP 92208, 44322 Nantes Cedex 3, France
Tel: +33 (0)2 51 12 55 20

The other two participants and contacts in the project are Nicolas Moes and Franck Schoefs.
